Iran and the P5+1– the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, China, France and Germany – reached a deal on July 14, 2015, that limits Iran's ability to build a nuclear bomb in exchange for sanctions relief.In comments directed at Trump, Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, this week pledged to burn the deal if the next U.S. president were to rip it up.As president, Obama's attempts to reach out to Iran were repeatedly rebuffed by a president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who was openly disdainful of the West.As a result of this trust, the United States was able to secure the release of five Americans held in Iran, including Washington Post journalist Jason Rezaian; an agreement was concluded on a long-standing claims issue that saves U.S. taxpayers a significant amount of risk and money; and an incident involving 10 American sailors who sailed into Iranian waters in January was quickly resolved, Rhodes said.Rhodes said while some would argue that the nuclear deal was not worth it, he would disagree.Syria is key for U.S. engagement with Iran, said Rhodes, urging a more constructive Iranian policy on Syria.Contending that Iranian leadership is not monolithic, Rhodes said critics of the regime must recognize that not everyone in Iran is a hardliner. He also said it was important for the United States to engage the Iranian people.
