(Newser) – President Trump formally withdrew the US from the 2015 Iran nuclear accord Tuesday—now what? Iranian President Hassan Rouhani gave a speech broadcast live on state TV within minutes of Trump's announcement in which he warned the country could restart enriching uranium "without any limitations" within weeks, the AP reports, though he added that the Iranian foreign minister will visit the countries still in the deal—China, France, Germany, Russia, and the UK—to see if the pact can be salvaged. More on the fallout and potential ramifications of the US pulling out:

  • The Washington Post lays out "5 big consequences" of Trump's decision while Rolling Stone looks at the "3 biggest consequences." Both articles point out the possibility that Trump's decision could alienate US allies.
  • What impact will the decision have on a potential US-North Korea nuclear deal? USA Today digs in.

  • One company that will be impacted by the US withdrawal? Boeing, which stands to lose $20 billion in deals with Iranian airlines. CNBC and CNNMoney look at how Boeing will handle that.
  • The Iran deal was then-President Obama's signature foreign policy achievement; Obama responded to Trump's withdrawal Tuesday by calling the decision "misguided." CNN has his full statement.
  • The AP has reactions from many more, including the Syrian government and congressional leaders.
  • Business Insider reports that even some of the deal's biggest critics are uncertain Trump made the correct choice.
  • But over at Vox, one of those critics gives an in-depth explanation of why this was the right thing to do, and the "two positive directions" Trump appears to be heading in.
  • The New York Times offers an extensive look at the deal and Trump's decision, which it calls a "risky bet" that the US can "break the regime" in Iran through economic sanctions.
  • For more on what happens next, Axios has a primer running down Iran's options, Europe's options, and the longer-term effects.
