"When I am elected president, I will renegotiate with Iran — right after I enable the immediate release of our American prisoners and ask Congress to impose new sanctions that stop Iran from having the ability to sponsor terrorism around the world.

- Donald Trump, USA Today Article, September 2015
Trump adviser Walid Phares said in July 2016 that Trump would not simply "tear it up" as he'd said, but that he "is not going to implement it as is, he is going to revise it after negotiating one-on-one with Iran or with a series of allies," a stance that Phares reiterated after the election.
In April 2017, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson certified that Iran is in compliance with the terms of the deal, but that the administration has undertaken a full review of the agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
