US President Donald Trump and his top national security aides on Tuesday lashed out at Iran with unusual venom, warning Tehran that it faces severe consequences if it defies the US.

In an even more fiery speech to a group opposed to the Iran deal, Bolton was to go further.

"Iran's leaders sow chaos, death and destruction", Trump told the gathering in the green-marbled hall. "They respect what I've done".

Ensuring nonproliferation of nuclear weapons "requires collective leadership of the type that led to the agreement" on the Iran nuclear deal in 2015, May said.

"The U.S. will always choose independence and cooperation over global governance, control and domination", Trump said.

"We need to look at how the money is being funneled into Bahrain and how our banking institutions launder money", said Bahrain's ambassador.

There were signs during Tuesday's speech that Trump's approach has worn thin among world leaders.

His speech, while delivered in a low-key fashion, was nonetheless a thunderous recitation of his "America First" policies.

Trump has withdrawn the USA from the Iran nuclear deal, the Paris climate accord and an Asia-Pacific trade pact, while imposing steep tariffs on both allies and adversaries. "America is governed by Americans".

Trump's national security advisor John Bolton warned Tehran of "hell to pay" if it threatens the USA or its allies.

The president's remarks were aimed, aides said, at elevating the theme of "American sovereignty", and Trump wasted little time in declaring that he has made progress on an agenda he has called "America first".

He also claimed his administration had accomplished more in less than two years than any predecessor had by this same point in their terms.

"So the fake news said people laughed at President Trump".

Citing rising protests in Tehran and "optimism toward the direction things are going with Iran", Lieberman praised Trump's decision to restore sanctions-receiving applause from the audience of diplomats upon just mentioning the president's election. Though he held out the possibility of a better relationship in the future, he made clear economic pressure on Iran would not abate.

"We have lived up to the JCPOA", Rouhani said.

The US President defended his decision to abandon the nuclear deal and promised more sanctions against Tehran.

"Remaining members of the deal have taken very good steps forward but Iran has higher expectations", he said in a reference to Russia, China and European nations who have pledged to remain part of the deal. "And we ask all nations to support Iran's people as they struggle to reclaim their religious and righteous destiny". "Similarly, he dislikes groups like North Atlantic Treaty Organisation because he sees them as somehow taking advantage of the United States".

Trump compared United States relations with Iran to what he called improved ties with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who Trump had met in Singapore in June as part of a still-unfulfilled drive to get Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons.

But Rouhani told reporters that sanctions which "were supposed to be proactive in November became proactive in September, so there are no other sanctions that will start in November".

Trump said America's economy is booming like never before and since his election, the USA has added Dollars 10 trillion in wealth.

The two leaders are trying to arrange a second summit.

But Macron said he was convinced that they all "retain the same objective in mind - namely, preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons and guaranteeing strict worldwide control on the peaceful use of their nuclear program".
