Iran and Trump

I continually think that I'm not going to be surprised by anything that Trump does, as he blunders through the hopefully short tenure of his presidency, but then he does something else to scare me deeply. I don't really understand his thinking behind this move, I know that he has been saying that he was going to do it for a number of months but to go against those that are supposed to be knowledgable about Iran, to 'keep his promise' is madness. 

What is he hoping to achieve with this move? It doesn't make the USA really seem like a stable and reliable ally, even if he is trying to appease his daughter and the Israeli goverment. Some commentators have referenced the fact that the breaking of the deal by Trump is short sighted, which is something that almost goes without saying when referring to Trump's actions.
