"I hope to be able to make a deal with them — a good deal, a fair deal, a good deal for them, better for them. But we cannot allow them to have nuclear weapons," Trump said on Thursday. "We must be able to go to a site and check that site. We have to be able to go into their military bases to see whether or not they are cheating."
The president also repeated his criticism of the current deal, which was negotiated by the Obama administration in 2015, calling it "one of the most embarrassing agreements the United States has entered into."
On Thursday, the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanctioned nine Iranian individuals and entities including those with links to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.
