More than 180 House Democrats are urging President Donald Trump to recertify the Iran nuclear agreement.

The Democrats' request was sent in a letter to Trump signed by Reps. David Price of North Carolina and Ted Deutch of Florida.

The letter, dated Wednesday, was first reported by The Hill.

"We are writing to urge that you do not withhold certification on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action absent credible evidence of a material breach by Iran," the lawmakers said in the letter. "Some of us voted for, and some against, the nuclear agreement with Iran.

"Nonetheless, we are united in our belief that enforcing this agreement to the fullest extent will provide the United States with more leverage to stop a potential Iranian nuclear weapons program and push back on Iran's destabilizing activities."

The Sun-Sentinel newspaper in Fort Lauderdale noted Trump had vowed during the campaign to "rip up" the Iran agreement as soon as he became president. Although that didn't happen, he has indicated he might withhold recertification of that nation's compliance. Recertification is required every three months., according to the newspaper.
