    Ah, but you see, Trump is imposing new sanctions on Iran at the same time as he avoids the old ones:

    President Donald Trump’s administration announced Wednesday that it will keep suspending nuclear-related sanctions on Iran as part of the contentious 2015 nuclear deal, but that it is imposing new sanctions on the Islamic Republic over its ballistic missile program.​

    With this, Trump performs his most favorite move, firmly occupying both sides of any issue. Everybody's happy!

    The deal is already dead. The Americans violated it when the Senate voted to continue the sanctions regime. Iran violated it when they breached negotiated maximum levels of heavy water stocks (twice).
