door striking front of frame

Where the card is the door is hitting the front of the frame so I have pull on the handle to close the door. What sort of adjustment would fix this?

Two adjustments, get a block of wood and hold it at the point where the door hits the stop molding and give a mild tap or two, it will slightly push the door stop molding. Note, it may break the paint slightly.

Second, completely remove and reinstall the stop with the door in the closed latched position, you will then have to do a little patch and paint!
