A senior White House official on Tuesday denied a New York Times report that said US President Donald Trump had told France's President Emmanuel Macron that he would be withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal.

"The president did not tell Macron those things," the official said.

Earlier today, the New York Times reported, citing a person briefed on the conversation between Trump and Macron, that the United States was going to pull out of the international nuclear agreement with Iran. 

The source said the United States is preparing to reinstate all sanctions it had waived as part of the deal and impose additional economic penalties, the Times reported.
