WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump is renewing his threat to fully withdraw the United States from the landmark Iran nuclear deal.

He is also holding out the possibility that fixes to the accord may prevent an American pullout.

Justifying his decision to decertify the 2015 pact, Trump said Monday the U.S. had been taken advantage of in negotiations conducted by the Obama administration and that he was tired of it.

He said that's why he refused to certify to Congress last week that the deal remains in America's national security interest.

At a Cabinet meeting, Trump said that the final resolution "might be total termination."

He said that "some would say that's a great possibility," though he also didn't rule out staying in the deal.
