President Trump is expected to recertify before Congress' mandated deadline Monday that Iran has complied with the Iran nuclear agreement, according to a report in The Weekly Standard.

The Obama-era deal lifts sanctions that would otherwise be imposed on Iran if it developed or housed nuclear weapons.

The White House's decision comes amidst calls from lawmakers on Capitol Hill not to recertify Iran.

Trump had promised to "tear up" the deal while a presidential candidate, though he could revert to his original stance on the issue before next week's deadline.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has advocated for recertifying the deal this month, three months after its last deadline in April.
