However, Emmanuel Macron's office told Reuters later that Donald Trump had given the French leader no indication about his plans on the Iran nuclear deal.
Commenting on the report, a senior White House official said that Trump didn't tell his French counterpart "those things."
At the same time, NBC News said earlier in the day that Trump was expected to announce that he would allow sanctions against Tehran. The outlet also noted that it could take months to put the new sanctions in place because the US government would need to develop guidance for companies and banks.
Trump is set to officially announce his decision Tuesday afternoon.
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.
