President Donald Trump will decertify the Iran nuclear deal according to the Washington Post. After the deal is decertified, the U.S. Congress has sixty days to either make changes to it or get rid of it.

Under what is described as a tougher and more comprehensive approach, Trump would open the door to modifying the landmark 2015 agreement he has repeatedly bashed as a raw deal for the United States. But for now he would hold off on recommending that Congress reimpose sanctions on Iran that would abrogate the agreement, said four people familiar with aspects of the president’s thinking.

Trump decertifying the deal will not lead to scrapping the deal in itself. The necessary and sufficient condition for scrapping the nuclear deal is the reimposing of sanctions on Iran.

[Decertifying the Iran nuclear deal] would start a 60-day congressional review period to consider the next steps for the United States. On its own, the step would not break the agreement among Iran, the United States and other world powers, but would start a clock on resuming sanctions that the United States had lifted as its part of the deal.

Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said that Iran has no intentions of renegotiating the nuclear deal.
