Clip: 07/01/2019 | 6m 15s

Iran says it now has more low-enriched uranium than the level agreed upon in the 2015 nuclear deal, from which the U.S. withdrew in 2018. In response, the White House says it will continue its “maximum pressure” campaign on Iran. William Brangham talks to the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace's Karim Sadjadpour about what the latest news means for tensions between the U.S. and Iran.
