Iran has a new hardline leader and has begun the process of enriching uranium metal, which could help it develop a nuclear weapon. President Biden hopes to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, but how realistic is that after President Trump withdrew from it and spent four years implementing harsh sanctions on Iran?

He’s executive vice president at the Quincy Institute and author of several books on the Iran nuclear deal. (AP Photo/Vahid Salemi)
