"Said, done!" On the chainsaw: "My voters"

US President Donald Trump has decided to abandon the so-called Iran nuclear deal, where the Islamic Republic accepted not to develop nuclear military capacity in exchange of the lifting of UN and international sanctions linked to the country's nuclear programme.

The leaders of Britain, France and Germany spent months trying to convince Trump to sustain the Iran deal, which they helped to negotiate, and are now the only ones to support it, along with Russia. Trump also threatened with sanctions European companies who are still making business in Iran, triggering a possible trade war with the EU.
