US President Donald Trump says he will "have a deal" with Iran a month after his possible reelection in the 2020 presidential election.

The Republican nominee set to face former Vice President Joe Biden made the claim at a campaign fundraiser in the state of New Jersey on Sunday.

"When we win, we will have a deal within four weeks," Trump was cited as saying by several media outlets. "

His remarks were reportedly cheered by the crowd at the home of the late Stanley Chera, a real estate mogul, in Long Branch.

While Tehran has maintained that it would not renegotiate under pressure, Trump made the comment as his country was about to introduce a resolution at the United Nations to extend an arms embargo against Iran.

The president has also launched a so-called "maximum pressure" campaign against Iran spearheaded by war hawks such as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

In January, the US president also ordered assassination of Iran's General Qassem Soleimani.

Trump unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal – clinched under his predecessor in 2018 -- despite opposition from its allies as well as Russia and China.
