US President Donald Trump has questioned the Iran nuclear deal amid a visit by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi.

Trump, who has been a staunch opponent of the international agreement negotiated by the US under President Barack Obama, took the opportunity to criticize it amid meeting Abadi in the White House on Monday.
