White House National Security adviser Jake Sullivan lambastes former US president Donald Trump’s administration for pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal in 2018, as talks to renew the pact hit more and more snags.

Asked by CBS about Iran’s evolving nuclear weapon capabilities, Sullivan says: “The reason we’re in the situation we’re in right now is because the previous administration pulled out of the Iran deal and we are paying the wages of that catastrophic mistake.”
