Trump pulls U.S. out of Iran nuclear deal

"I am announcing that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal," President Donald Trump announced to a room of reporters at the White House today.

"America will not be held hostage by nuclear blackmail," he said.

The President announced that under Secretary of State Mike Pompeo today, the U.S. will be "reinstating nuclear sanctions," at "the highest level of economic sanction."

Trump said other nations that help Iran in its nuclear pursuits will be punished.

How will this make America safer, a reporter asked when the conference ended.

"This will make America safer," replied a sedated-sounding President.

Asked by multiple reporters in the room for an update on the Americans held hostage in North Korea, Trump replied, "We'll soon be finding out."
