President Trump's Foreign Policy

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson accuses Iran of sponsoring terrorists, violating human rights and making the Middle East unstable. "An unchecked Iran has the potential to travel the same path as North Korea and take the world along with it," said Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

But he admits Iran is complying with the nuclear deal. The State Department is reviewing whether the U.S. should stick with it. "To tear up the Iran deal, in my view, would be giving Iran a license to get a nuclear weapon," said Iran Deal Chief Negotiator Wendy Sherman.

"Not only does that defy logic - but it adversely effects American security interests," said Reza Marashi, National Iranian American Council. 

President Trump calls it a bad deal, but analysts say there's risk ignoring the agreement and imposing sanctions. "If sanctions are re-imposed on Iran, Iran can walk from the deal," said Jeremy Bash, Former CIA Chief of Staff. 

But the White House realizes getting out of this deal could be tricky. "We are well aware of any potential negative impact the action could have," said White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

The administration's also explaining why a strike group that was supposedly headed towards North Korea was actually going in the opposite direction. "She will be on her way and I'll determine when she gets there." Secretary of Defense General James Mattis

Analysts say promising help's on the way - when it's not - could rattle our allies in Asia, counting on the U.S. for protection from another missile launch.

That aircraft carrier is now headed toward the Korean peninsula, expected to arrive next week.
