The Debate

Dead deal? Iran and Europe scramble to keep nuclear accord alive

Does Donald Trump have both Iran and Europe over a barrel? As the US walks away from the 2015 nuclear deal, will Iran build up its militarization? Already, hardliners there are cheering. The US is reimposing sanctions on anyone dealing with Iran with US dollars. How can Europe's signatories stay in? How should they respond? Will Trump's move on Iran stoke brewing trade battles and alter transatlantic relations? Is it a personal defeat for Emmanuel Macron, who tried to convince Trump to stay in?
