The Wall Street Journal: Trump decides to extend waiver on sanctions relief for Iran, say sources

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump has decided to extend sanctions relief to Iran, following the advice of top advisers and keeping the landmark Iran nuclear agreement intact for at least another several months, people familiar with the discussions said.

Trump is expected to couple that decision with a package of new sanctions, including some aimed at confronting human rights abuses in Iran, that are not technically related to the nuclear agreement.

Trump reached the decision Thursday after an afternoon Oval Office meeting with his national security team, a U.S. official said, and the White House plans to announce it Friday if the decision stands.

Officials have been urging Trump to keep the deal in place at least for now while they work to address some of his concerns with the deal, which he has said gives Iran too much in sanctions relief for too little in the way of restrictions on its nuclear program.
