Israel’s prime minister believes Trump will pull out of the Iran deal by May

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly told members of his security cabinet on Sunday that President Donald Trump will likely pull the US out of the 2015 Iranian nuclear accord by May.

Two ministers who participated in the meeting told Israeli outlet Channel 10 that at Sunday’s cabinet meeting Netanyahu briefed them on talks held with Trump in Washington earlier this month.

“I believe that Trump is very close to cancelling the nuclear agreement. The president spoke in the presence of his people, in the presence of all his senior government officials, and told me that if there is no significant change, he will leave the nuclear agreement with Iran,” Netanyahu reportedly said.

Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of Defence James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and Chief of Staff John Kelly were reportedly all present during the discussion.

Channel 10 said the Prime Minister’s office did not deny the report, but refused to comment on the details.
