Q    You mentioned United Nations next week.  Your administration has undertaken a review of the Iran deal.  Will you be announcing --

THE PRESIDENT:  A review of --

Q    Of the Iran deal.  I'm wondering if you will be announcing, or if you can tell us, give us a hint about whether you will make any decisions about adding more sanctions on Iran or even pulling out.

THE PRESIDENT:  You'll see what I'm going to be doing very shortly in October.  But I will say this:  The Iran deal is one of the worst deals I've ever seen.  Certainly, at a minimum, the spirit of the deal is just atrociously kept, but the Iran deal is not a fair deal to this country.  It's a deal that should have never, ever been made.  And you'll see what we're doing in a couple of weeks.  It's going to be in October.

Q    Some major action, you think, by your administration?

THE PRESIDENT:  You'll see.  You're going to see.  But we are not going to stand for what they're doing to this country.  They have violated so many different elements, but they’ve also violated the spirit of that deal.  And you will see what we'll be doing in October.  It will be very evident.
