President Trump's get-tough approach to Iran could kill a huge energy investment signed just four months ago.

Stating the above, Total CEO Patrick Pouyanné added: "Either we can do the deal legally if there is a legal framework. If we cannot do that for legal reasons, because of [a] change of [the] regime of sanctions, then we have to revisit it," reported the CNNMoney.

"If there is a sanctions regime [on Iran], we have to look at it carefully," said Pouyanné. "We work in the U.S., we have assets in the U.S., and we just acquired more assets in the U.S."

"We are working on the project. We launched the tenders, we should award... contracts by January," Pouyanné said. "I hope by that time, Congress will have an answer for the president and the president will have to renew, or not [renew], the certification."
