US President Donald Trump has said that Iran will be eager to make a new deal with the US if he wins the November election.

“I withdrew from the last administration’s disastrous nuclear deal”, Trump said at the Monday campaign rally in Sanford, Florida, adding “Probably the first call I’ll get after we win the election will be from Iran dying to make a deal because they are down 28 percent GDP”.

Speaking to his supporters in Dayton, Ohio in September, Trump said that the US wants Iran to be a strong country but does not want it to have nuclear weapons.

The United States has imposed a broad array of sanctions on banks, oil and other sectors of Iran’s economy following the Trump administration’s 2018 withdrawal from a multinational nuclear agreement with Iran.

Last month, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he hoped the US would continue with its current policy on Iran regardless of the outcome of the November presidential election.
