Trump said if Iran attempts to restart its nuclear program if the U.S. pulls out of the nuclear deal, "they will have bigger problems than they have ever had before.”

The backdrop: The comments came ahead of an Oval Office meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, in which Macron is expected to attempt to convince Trump to remain in the nuclear deal. Iran's foreign minister has said Iran will restart its nuclear program if Trump decides to stop waiving sanctions next month.
