He is on something of a rescue mission for what is formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which Trump has said he would scrap unless European allies fix by mid-May what he calls “terrible flaws.”Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called on European leaders to support the agreement.

“It is either all or nothing. European leaders should encourage Trump not just to stay in the nuclear deal, but more important to begin implementing his part of the bargain in good faith,” Zarif wrote on Twitter.Minutes after Macron touched down in the United States, the White House said it had no announcements on the Iran deal.“The president has been extremely clear that he thinks it’s a bad deal. That certainly has not changed,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said.
