President Donald Trump is likely to take a major step against the Iran nuclear deal in a speech Friday, marking a more aggressive approach to Iranian activities in the Middle East that risks complicating U.S. relations with European allies.U.S. officials said Trump was expected to announce that he will not certify the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, which he has called the "worst deal ever" believing the agreement is not in the national interests of the United States.Trump has found himself under immense pressure as he considers decertifying the deal, a move that would ignore warnings from inside and outside his administration that to do so would risk undermining U.S. credibility.Trump has called the accord "an embarrassment" and "the worst deal ever".European officials have categorically ruled out renegotiating the deal, but have said they share Trump's concerns over Iran's destabilizing influence in the Middle East. Iran will react sharply to any U.S. move against the nuclear deal with global powers, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told the Iranian parliament on Wednesday.
