Less than an hour after President Donald Trump announced Friday he will not recertify the Iran nuclear deal, he said it's better to keep all options on the table before making a final decision on the agreement.

Prior to boarding Marine One for a short flight to the Secret Service's training center in nearby Beltsville, Maryland, Trump was asked why he wouldn't simply pull the U.S. out of the nuclear deal instead of relying on Congress to do something over the next 60 days.

"The deal is terrible," Trump said. "What we have done with the decertification process, we will have Congress take a look at it … I like the two-step process much better."

Congress will now have two months, under the terms of the agreement, to debate the issue and try to come up with new language and terms.

Trump also took a shot at his predecessor, under whose watch the Iran agreement — officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action — was negotiated and signed.

"We are very unhappy with Iran and they have not treated us with the kind of respect they should be treating us. They should thank Barack Obama for making that deal," he said.
