The White House is aware of "potential negative impacts" from a review ordered by President Donald Trump of whether lifting sanctions through the Iran nuclear deal was in U.S. national security interests, his spokesman said Wednesday.Asked at a briefing if Trump had decided to pull out of the 2015 deal, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said the 90-day interagency review, announced Tuesday, would make recommendations on the path forward.The agreement between Iran and six world powers, negotiated during Barack Obama's presidency, placed limitations on Iran's nuclear program in exchange for lifting international oil and financial sanctions against Iran.Iran denies ever having considered developing atomic weapons although nuclear experts have warned that any U.S. violation of the nuclear deal would allow Iran also to pull back from its commitments to curb nuclear development.
