Trump has decertified the Iran nuclear deal and the 60 day deadline for Congress to decide next steps is ticking down – meanwhile, we’ll be discussing options with former U.S. ambassador Thomas R. Pickering.

Pickering has served as ambassador to the United Nations under President George H.W. Bush, as well as ambassador to Russia, India and Jordan in a career that lasted over forty years.  

We’ll be speaking with Ambassador Pickering about next steps on the Iran nuclear deal and what the decertification might mean, not just for the U.S., but in Pyongyang and Beijing as we also attempt to temper North Korea’s nuclear capabilities. We’ll also get his thoughts on the ongoing Russia investigation and what it means for the White House’s relationship with the Kremlin.
