  • 3:30 am
    Washington Week [#5715] President Trump is expected to decertify the Iran nuclear deal on Friday despite assessments from several cabinet officials that Iran is complying with the 2015 agreement. The decision would send the deal to Congress which could re-impose economic sanctions and effectively kill the deal that limits the development of Iran's nuclear ambitions. Mr. Trump's attempt to get out of the "worst deal" would have a far-reaching impact on how the United States is viewed on the world stage and comes the same week the president publicly challenged his own secretary of state.
    On domestic issues, the president signed an executive order to dismantle key parts of the Affordable Care Act and will allow small businesses to join together to purchase insurance plans. The directive would undermine the Obamacare exchanges and could potentially raise prices for the sickest people. The unilateral action comes as President Trump grows increasingly frustrated with the Republican Party's ability to pass legislation on Capitol Hill and GOP leaders work to overhaul the tax system.
    Robert Costa will discuss President Trump's actions at home and abroad with:
    Michael Crowley of POLITICO
    Shawna Thomas of VICE News
    Julie Hirschfeld Davis of The New York Times
    Nancy Cordes of CBS News
