"Of course. That's what we're doing, absolutely", he said.

"In this battle, any country that tries to take Iran's place on the oil market will be guilty of treason against Iran. and surely one day it will pay the price of this treason", he said. India imported 771,000 barrels of crude oil a day from Iran in May, a 35 percent increase from the previous month, tanker tracking and shipping data compiled by Bloomberg show.

On Fox, Trump directed blame at the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, of which Saudi Arabia is a member.

Iran and Saudi Arabia broke off diplomatic relations in 2016 and are locked in several proxy wars in the Middle East, including in Yemen.

"It depends on the conduct of other governments", Bolton said.

Hook seemed to celebrate the collapsing Iranian economy, telling reporters Monday that their efforts had led to more than 50 worldwide companies announcing they will leave the Iranian market, although the State Department is not providing that list.
