WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. officials say the future of the Iran nuclear deal may hinge on a face-saving fix for President Donald Trump so he doesn't have to recertify the Islamic republic's compliance with the accord every 90 days.

Several officials say the periodic reviews mandated by Congress have become such a source of embarrassment for Trump that his aides are seeking ways for him to avoid signing off on the accord without scuttling it entirely.

The president has called the agreement one of America's worst deals.

Officials say what Trump hates most, however, is a 2015 law requiring him to tell Congress every three months if Iran is meeting its promises. There are no easy fixes, however.

The officials weren't authorized to speak publicly on the matter and demanded anonymity.
