    In this Oct. 13, 2017, file photo, President Donald Trump makes a statement from the White House on his administration's strategy for dealing with Iran.

    President Donald Trump will, for the final time, waive sanctions against Iran, according to senior administration officials.

    The move extends the life of an international nuclear accord that Trump disavowed three months ago, CNBC reported.

    Trump will work with European partners on developing new triggers to strengthen the deal, which was enacted in 2015 by six world powers.

    He will be open to remaining in the Iran deal only if he can secure that new agreement without a sunset clause, officials told CNBC.
