Speaking to reporters at the United Nations General Assembly in New York, US President Donald Trump.
Trump has vowed to continue to isolate Iran through U.S. sanctions that are being re-instated following the United States pullout from the nuclear agreement in May.
The national security advisor reaffirmed the USA stance that it expects Iranian oil customers to have cut their imports of oil from Tehran to zero by November 4, and urged banking and financial services to rethink deals with Iran.
"He was saying China has total respect for Donald Trump and Donald Trump's very, very large brain".
"Perhaps because we're able to keep this multilateral framework (nuclear deal), avoid the worst and act as a mediator, while the U.S. sanctions create pressure and reduce the amount of money available for Iran's expansionism, that can accelerate the process we want", French President Emmanuel Macron told reporters.
US President Donald Trump has accused China of attempting to interfere in the upcoming congressional elections, claiming the Chinese are motivated by opposition to his tough trade policy.
Oil steady as Trump tweet slows surge upwards
By beating Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia, the United States of America this year has become the topmost crude oil producer. Weekly crude production inched back to 11 million bpd, the record high it has been hovering around this summer.
"They do not want me or us to win because I am the first president to ever challenge China on trade, and we are winning on trade", Trump continued.

Watch both Trump and Rouhani talk about the nuclear deal. One month ago, he tweeted, "All of the fools that are so focused on looking only at Russian Federation should start also looking in another direction, China".
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told the council that "China has all along followed the principle of non-interference in other countries' domestic affairs". "We will not allow our workers to be victimized". "We refuse to accept any unwarranted accusations against China".
"Until such time that we keep reaping the benefits of that agreement for our nation and people, we shall remain in the agreement", he said. He said that China's alleged activities were the result of an ongoing trade dispute between the two countries.
At a news conference on Thursday following his return to Tehran, Rouhani said of the annual United Nations gathering, "The Americans had no achievements in this public assembly".
"We stop negotiation for now, acting tit for tat, roll out corresponding policies, hold public opinion at a good level without escalating it, limit scope, and strike accurately and carefully, splitting apart different domestic groups in U.S.", the propaganda memo stated.
