WASHINGTON (AP) --

Vice President Mike Pence says President Donald Trump will ask allies to scrap the Iran nuclear deal negotiated during the Obama administration. The agreement was intended to limit Iran's uranium enrichment program in exchange for an easing of economic sanctions.áThe deal has been unraveling since Trump pulled the United States out from it in 2018. He believes it gave Tehran too many economic benefits without doing enough to prevent Iran from eventually developing a nuclear weapon.áIn the wake of the U.S. drone strike that killed a top Iranian general, Pence tells "Fox & Friends" that Trump plans to call on American allies to withdraw from the deal.
