Some reports in the USA have suggested that Trump may designate the entire IRGC as a terrorist organization; 10 years ago, it designed the IRGC's Al-Quds Force as a terror group, and the entire IRGC has been sanctioned for activities relating to nuclear proliferation and human rights abuses.

Previously, Trump had said Iran hasn't lived up to the "spirit" of the worldwide agreement.
