Trump threatens Iran with increased sanctions after country exceeds uranium enrichment cap
President Trump on Wednesday warned that his administration would soon "substantially" increase sanctions on Iran after the country exceeded the uranium enrichment level limits laid out in the Obama-era nuclear deal.
"Remember, that deal was to expire in a short number of years. Sanctions will soon be increased, substantially!" Trump tweeted.
Trump claimed that Iran had "long been secretly" enriching uranium in violation of the 2015 nuclear agreement, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. But the U.S. and international monitoring agencies had previously found Iran was abiding by the terms of the deal.
