Breitbart: Trump's team to review Iran deal collapse

Tehran, Aug 30, IRNA - White House team to review Iran nuclear deal with P5+1 has collapsed, Breitbart News Network reported.

'After reluctantly recertifying the Iran deal for a second time, a frustrated President Trump concluded that much of his top staff had failed to provide him with options other than to continue the nuclear agreement' with Iran, American Breitbart reported recently.

'Trump was incensed with high-level cabinet members, such as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who came to Iran deal review meetings with no information about alternate options.

'Tillerson, who continues to staff top positions in his State Department with pro-Iran-deal Obama administration holdovers, relied on the bureaucracy in Foggy Bottom for advice. To nobody’s surprise, he advocated that recertification was the only option. Tillerson and other cabinet members, like national security adviser H.R. McMaster, pushed for continuing the deal, so the president signed off.'

'After President Trump recertified the deal for a second time in mid-July, upset with Tillerson’s lack of preparation, he decided to task a new team of White House advisers with independently review of Iran deal. He did not want to get only the recertification option a third time.'

Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson distanced himself from his boss when he said that President Donald Trump 'speaks for himself' not on behalf of the American people.

Tillerson lashed out at Trump for his stance on the racist violence in Virginia during an interview on Sunday with the American TV Fox News.

The announcement comes 'just three weeks before President Donald Trump is scheduled to deliver his maiden address before world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly’s annual debate,' the Foreign Policy magazine earlier reported.

The Foreign Policy also said that 'William Rivington Brownfield, who has been serving as US Assistant Secretary of State of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs since January 10, 2011, has told his department that he would also step down by the end of September.'
