The background of the question
In July 2015, Iran, the five permanent members of the UN Security Council (Russia, Britain, China, USA, France) and Germany reached an agreement to resolve the nuclear issue of Tehran. They have developed AGREEMENT provides for the lifting of UN sanctions, the US and the EU. In January 2016 it was announced about the beginning of the implementation of the transaction, and Washington lifted the restriction.
In turn, the President of the United States Donald trump called the deal with Iran "harmful" claiming that it had not prevented Iran from developing nuclear weapons, only delayed it.
