Trump tells Security Council: US will ensure Iran never acquires nuclear bomb

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday denounced Iran’s increasingly aggressive attitude at the United Nations Security Council despite signing an agreement in 2015 to clamp down on its nuclear program.

“In the years following the signing of the agreement, Iran’s aggression has only increased,” Trump told the Security Council.

Trump, who withdrew from the agreement, promised that US sanctions would be “fully” in force in early November.

“After that, the United States will impose new sanctions, tougher than ever, to counter Iran’s entire malevolent behavior,” he added.
