>> US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, announcing that one of America's biggest rivals, Iran, appeared to be in compliance with the multi-nation agreement aimed at limiting Tehran's access to nuclear material. Donald Trump campaigned vociferously against the nuclear deal as a candidate for president, promising to tear it up.
>> I will tell you, that deal will be totally renegotiated or worse. The nuclear deal requires the US State Department notify congress every 90 days on Iran's compliant. On Tuesday, Tillerson sent a letter to US House of Representative Speaker Paul Ryan, the first such notification under the Trump administration.
The deal, reached in 2015, lifted international sanctions on Iran in exchange for Tehran accepting limits on its civilian nuclear power program. President Barack Obama touted the deal as a victory for those who wanted to keep Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. US Republicans roundly rejected the agreement, perhaps none more so than Trump.
>> Obama's a terrible negotiator. You look at the deal he made with Iran, one of the worst deals in the history deal making, okay?>> Tillerson also said, he was launching an interagency review of whether the deal was in the US National Security interests. He did not say how long the review might take.
