Donald Trump isn't going to rip up the Iran nuclear deal on Day 1 as president.Emboldened Republican lawmakers are already considering ways to test Iran's resolve to live up to the deal.Trump said that he doesn't want to simply tear up the agreement.The deal, which went into effect in January, forced Iran to pull back from the brink of nuclear weapons capacity in exchange for an end to many of the U.S. and European sanctions that devastated Iran's economy.Last summer, Walid Phares, a Trump adviser on the Middle East, said Trump wouldn't pull out of an agreement with America's "institutional signature," but rather revise elements through one-on-one negotiations with Iran or with a larger grouping of allies.Iran could use either as an excuse to push past the limits of the nuclear deal, which may partly explain Republican motivations.Iran also has repeatedly breached a ballistic missile ban that was extended for eight years under the nuclear deal, prompting some limited sanctions from Washington.
