According to congressional aides, the Trump administration is telling members of Congress that the US will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.
Earlier in the day, a report published by The New York Times appeared, saying that Trump had told his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron that the US would leave the international nuclear agreement with Iran and reinstate all sanctions against the Middle Eastern country.
The report, however, was later refuted by Macron's office and a senior White House official, who said that Trump didn't tell his French counterpart "those things."
Trump has repeatedly criticized the Iran nuclear agreement as one of the worst deals in history.
The JCPOA was signed by Iran with the United States, Russia, China, the United Kingdom and France — the five permanent members of the UN Security Council — plus Germany and the European Union in Vienna on July 14, 2015.
