Nuke is a controversial topic in the US.
In 2016, President Donald Trump took aim at Iran for developing a nuclear weapon, calling it “the most dangerous nation in the world”.
US sanctions have crippled the country’s nuclear industry since 2016.
But US nuclear officials have defended the US nuclear program, saying it is necessary for the nation to protect the security of the US, its allies and partners.
Iran’s leaders have condemned US policy, and the country has repeatedly warned that it would retaliate with a military strike against the US if Washington continues to develop nuclear weapons.
Iran has rejected US allegations of being a nuclear weapons state, saying that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.
This week, Trump signed a bill barring the export of US-made equipment to Iran, but it does not include any restrictions on its nuclear industry.
