Decertifying the deal instead of outrightly scraping it means the president wants Congress to take a second look and possibly reimpose sanctions on Iran but Iranian officials have said that should the us decide to impose fresh sanctions, they will feel obliged to move forward on their plans to develop nuclear weapons.

Supporters of the nuclear pact say its collapse could trigger a regional arms race and worsen Middle East tensions, while opponents say it went too far in easing sanctions without requiring that Iran end its nuclear program permanently, Reuters noted.

It was argued that Trump would probably make a speech on Middle East on October 12th and declare a more comprehensive Iranian plan.

Previously, Mr. trump described the agreement signed by Iran, the US, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany as "one of the worst deals I have ever seen". After Trump railed against the deal yet again in a speech to the United Nations last month, Rouhani said "clearly and definitively" that "the nuclear deal can not be renegotiated".

Trump hinted at what might be "necessary" during his inaugural address before the United Nations General Assembly last month, in which he threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea in defense of the US or its allies.

The agreement was concluded in 2015, to stop Iran's nuclear program.

The president's possible decision doesn't mean the deal will be scrapped, but it would open the door to changing it, the Washington Post reported.

Trump must tell Congress by October 15 whether he believes Iran is in compliance with the agreement.

Gesturing at the people around him, he asked the waiting press if they knew "what this represents". "Could be the calm, the calm before the storm".

Trump was joined at the White House by military leaders for a dinner on Thursday evening when he suggested the current moment was the "calm before the storm".

"You'll find out", Trump replied.

The meeting comes as threats toward both Iran and the DPRK from the Trump administration continue to escalate.

The White House is outright refusing to explain the President's statement.
