BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – According the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, President Donald Trump’s sudden confession to the United Nations that he had made a decision on the future of the Iran nuclear deal came as a total surprise.

“I didn’t know he was going to say today he’s made a decision. I knew he had, but I didn’t know he was going to say he had,” Tillerson said in response to questions by reporters which revealed they were already informed by Trump that he had decided on a course of action.

Very recently, Trump announced before the United Nations General Assembly that he had reached a decision on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) – an initiative which monitors and regulates the Iran nuclear agreement – although he stopped short of saying what it actually was.

Tillerson’s stunned response to reporters reveals that not only was he unaware that Trump planned to inform the UN of a decision, but that he was also unaware Trump talked to the UN right up until the press informed him so almost a day after the event.
