It signals a more confrontational approach to Iran from Mr Trump, who has reluctantly rectified the deal twice despite concerns about loopholes.

He said this evening: “History has shown that the longer we ignore a threat the more dangerous it become.”

He described Iran as a “rogue regime” responsible for “hostile actions”.

Mr Trump said Iran will “never – and I mean never” achieve nuclear status.

Mr Trump said: “It threatens American ships and threatens freedom of navigation.

“It launches cyber attacks against our critical infrastructure and military.

“The regime violently suppressesesses its own citizens. This regime has fuelled sectarian violence in Ira and vicious civil wars in Yemen and Syria.”

Donald Trump speaking about the Iran nuclear agreement which he called the ‘worst deal ever’
Senior US officials, European allies and prominent US lawmakers have told Trump that refusing to certify the deal would leave the America isolated, concede the diplomatic high ground to Tehran, and ultimately risk the unraveling of the agreement.

Signed by the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China, the European Union and Iran, the deal relieved sanctions on Tehran in exchange for giving up its nuclear weapons program.

Mr Trump will also give the US Treasury Department broad authority to impose economic sanctions against people and entities in the Iranian military, the and the Iran Revolutionary Guard.

Rex Tillerson has admitted Mr Trump will push for separate measures against Iran but admitted they might struggle to secure the approval of Congress.

The US Secretary of State said: “What we are laying out here is this is the pathway we think provides us the best platform from which to attempt to fix this deal.

“We may be unsuccessful. We may not be able to fix it. And if we’re not then we may end up out of the deal.”
