French President Emmanuel Macron said on Wednesday that he would expect US President Donald Trump to pull the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal based on his past statements while stressing he does not know what Trump will decide on 12 May, Reuters reports.

“I don’t know what the American decision will be but the rational analysis of all President Trump’s statements does not lead me to believe that he will do everything to stay in the JCPOA (Iranian nuclear deal),” Macron told a news conference.
