, especially Conservative Americans have been in strong opposition to the lifting of sanctions against the Middle Eastern
state. It has been one of Trump’s electoral pledges to either renegotiate or abandon the heavily criticized agreement between Iran, the members of the UN Security Council and Germany.

As this graphic shows, Donald Trump does not have a lot of public support for his decision as this infographic shows. Since its implementation, citizens increasingly favored the agreement, reaching an all-time high before Donald Trump may abandon it.
