Trudeau had argued that by U.S.'s pulling out of the Iran Nuclear Deal, Iran would become more poweful with nuclear weapons and this would pose risks to the world,
2015 Iran nuclear agreement was reportedly a bill that was passed by the US Congress in May 2015, giving Congress the right to review any agreement reached in talks with Iran aiming to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.
Trump considered this agreement, which was implemented under President Barack Obama, to be "the worst deal ever."
Moreover media had reported that John Kerry, who had led Obama's efforts finalise the Iran nuclear deal, had been promoting support for the deal which annoyed Trump and he threatened to move out of the Iron Nuclear Deal.
When Kerry said that withdrawing from the agreement "doesn't make sense," Trump fired back at her on Twitter early Tuesday that Kerry had his chance and blew it" with Iran.
Trump added: "Stay away from negotiations John, you are hurting your country!"
Trump had said that he wanted time till May 12 to decide whether to uphold the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) or to withdraw from it and had tweeted late Monday night that he would announce his decision by Tuesday afternoon.
Iran, in the meantime, had complied with the agreement and said he was ready to curb nuclear enrichment provided the U.S., the European Union (EU) and United Nations (U.N.). would not lift sanctions against it.
European countries who met on Tuesday also confirmed their support for the deal and had urged Trump not to pull the U.S. out.
China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom and the EU also supported this agreement.
During December and January, there had been nationwide protests in Iran due to Iran's poor economy and unemployment which resulted in the death of at least 25 people reportedly and nearly 5,000 arrested.
Iran's parliamentary speaker said a U.S. pullout could lead to more unity among Iranians and would be a threat to the world.
Trump called the deal "disastrous," calling it one-sided deal "allowed Iran to continue enriching uranium" and added that if he allowed the deal to stand, there would soon be a nuclear arms race.
