Corker: Trump ‘Likely Will Move Away From’ Iran Deal in May

Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Bob Corker said on Sunday that he expects President Donald Trump to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal in May if progress is not made to fix it by then.When Trump waived certain nuclear-related sanctions on Iran in January, he warned that he would not do so again at the next deadline in May if Germany, Britain, and France did not agree to “fix the terrible flaws of the Iran nuclear deal.”“The Iran deal will be another issue that’s coming up in May, and right now it doesn’t feel like it’s gonna be extended,” Corker said on CBS’s Face the Nation. “The president likely will move away from it unless our European counterparts really come together on a framework. And it doesn’t feel to me that they are.”“As we get within two weeks of the May 12th date, that could change,” he added. Asked point blank whether he thinks the president will pull out of the deal on that date, Corker said, “I do, as I mentioned, unless something changes.”
