of the united nations altogether on friday u.s. president donald trump's expected to finally announce whether he will uphold the iran nuclear deal under the landmark agreement sanctions against iran will ease next change for the islamic republic curbing its nuclear program michaela reports from the united nations. repudiation of the iran deal was a central promise of the trump electoral campaign and i'm disgusted i've never seen anything like it in my life and by the way be careful because we made a rare and a real power we gave one hundred and fifty billion dollars. now think of it think of the crowd booed almost certainly unaware that wasn't the case the sum of money released in terms of the deal was in fact iran's own funds that had been frozen by previous sanctions we didn't get anything we got nothing during his first months in office president trump had to acknowledge the fact that iran was complying with its
8:21 am
side of the deal formally certifying so on two occasions but the us ambassador to the united nations has apparently been at the forefront of finding a way in which the president could fulfill his campaign promise coming up with the argument that iranian compliance was not the only thing that need be certified we owe it to ourselves to look at every aspect of this deal and understand that this was a flawed deal and understand that this flawed deal has negative consequences as well this argument that other factors such as u.s. national interest should be taken into account rejected by other signatories to the deal the new agreement is about nuclear nuclear is fulfilled the agreement is the living made clear to the fact that the u.s. cannot take unilateral action without security council consensus the deal being signed by the five permanent members along with germany known as the p five plus
8:22 am
one how many you cannot join what he has so many you know not. all members of the p five plus one stand in line with iran except that one russia china three european countries the holy you and hundreds of countries they are all standing with iran. perhaps the real interest of president trump is not the deal itself but the perceived political and personal need to meet one of his campaign promises if so president tran could play a long term cost for the short term satisfaction of his right wing support base not least the dilution of trust in u.s. commitment to international agreements the fracturing of relationships with traditional allies and the possible if not probable repudiation of a security council whose authority would be disdainfully floated by a member mike hanna. at the united nations one of liberia's
