Trump says Iran violating 'spirit' of nuclear deal

  • Trump says Iran violating 'spirit' of nuclear deal

In a joint press conference with the Prime Minister of Italy, Paolo Gentiloni, the U.S. President heralded his "great friend" Luciano Pavarotti.

With Italy set to host a G-7 summit next month, Gentiloni can shape the agenda on behalf of other European leaders wary of Trump's position on some long-standing agreements.

Paris police say a gunman was shot dead Thursday after opening fire on officers along the Champs Elysees, killing one and wounding another.

"The administration's views of the European Union and the European project are a work in progress", said Charles Kupchan, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and a former director for European affairs at the National Security Council under Obama.

"We don't know whether or not they're able to do that, but I have absolute confidence that he will be trying very, very hard", Trump said, referring to Chinese President Xi Jinping. "It's evolving. There was never a give-up", Trump said.

Trump's comments came during a White House news conference with Gentiloni, who implored the United States to step up its "critical" involvement in Libya, a former Italian colony.

Trump is approaching his 100th day in office, a benchmark often cited to measure a new administration's achievements.

Greece Blows Away EU-IMF Bailout Targets With Strong Budget Performance
Greece posted a 0.7% general government surplus of 0.7% of GDP, from a 5.9% deficit in 2015, Elstat said. Athens faces a primary surplus target of 1.75 percent of GDP this year.

Gentiloni echoed what he called Trump's "words of condolences and closeness to the French people" and noted it was a delicate period in France, just three days before a hotly contested presidential election.

An attacker emerged from a auto in Paris Thursday and used an automatic weapon to shoot at officers in the center of the Champs-Elysees. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility in a statement.

Young immigrants brought to the U.S.as children and now here illegally can "rest easy", President Donald Trump said Friday, telling the "dreamers" they will not be targets for deportation under his immigration policies. Trump's administration is demanding that Congress fund a bigger US border wall with Mexico and is suggesting that his administration could scrap the USA nuclear deal with Iran.

Speaking of the Iranians, Trump said: "They are not living up to the spirit of the agreement, I can tell you that, : although he didn't mention any specific violations".

Trump took aim at Canada's dairy industry this week for creating a new lower-priced classification of milk product that he argues hurts USA producers. Throughout the campaign, he had firmly and repeatedly guaranteed that Mexico, not USA taxpayers, would pay for the wall.

President Trump said America "has enough roles" around the world already and will not get involved with intervening in Libya.
