“I desire that will, at the appropriate time, after the sanctions kick in — in addition to also they are brutal what we’ve put on Iran — I desire that will they’re going to come back in addition to also negotiate a real deal because I’d love to be able to do that will yet right today This kind of’s too soon to do that will,” Trump said.

“On the Iran deal, I think Iran can be a different country today than This kind of was three or four months ago. I don’t think they’re looking so much to the Mediterranean, I don’t think they’re looking so much at Syria like they were, with total confidence, I don’t think they’re so confident right today,” he said.
Not long after Trump in addition to also Kim’s agreement was announced, Iran warned North Korea not to trust the U.S. president who, This kind of said, could cancel their denuclearization agreement within hours.
