CBS NEWS -- Belgium's ambassador to the United States joins host Major Garrett on this week's new episode of The Takeout to weigh in on President Trump's decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and what it's like to be a diplomat in D.C.

Ambassador Dirk Wouters - who was involved in helping craft the deal's original framework - "deeply regrets" the president's decision. Specifically, Wouters disagrees with Trump's claim that Iran is not in compliance with the agreement.

Over frites and Brussels sprouts at B Too - one of Washington's most well-known Belgian restaurants - Garrett and Wouters dive into the daily life of a diplomat and the differences between working with the Trump and Obama administrations. 

The Takeout airs on WCBS Newsradio 880 every Friday at 9 p.m. You can listen to it on the app -- download it here.
