ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) President Donald Trump said on Thursday that Iran had not lived up to the spirit of the nuclear deal agreed with world powers and suggested he would reveal his decision on whether to certify the agreement soon. "We must not allow Iran ... to obtain nuclear weapons," Trump said during a meeting with military leaders at the White House. "The Iranian regime supports terrorism and exports violence, bloodshed and chaos across the Middle East. That is why we must put an end to Iran's continued aggression and nuclear ambitions. They have not lived up to the spirit of their agreement," he said. Asked about his decision on whether to certify or decertify the landmark nuclear deal, Trump said: "You'll be hearing about Iran very shortly." Trump also that Iran and North Korea, Afghanistan and ISIS [The Islamic State] were "challenges that we really should have taken care of a long time ago". The goal with North Korea, Trump said, was "denuclearization". "We cannot allow this dictatorship to threaten our nation or our allies with unimaginable loss of life," Trump said.
