Armada starts to over heat when a/c is on and at idle or stop and go traffic. Temperature goes back down when driving again

(2010 Nissan Armada)
in Chicago, IL on July 10, 2018
Problem only occurs when a/c is on and idle. When a/c is turned on radiator fan comes on as it should. I have replaced the thermastat, engine coolant sensor and radiator cap.
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Overheating comes down when driving again

If while driving the heat level decreases it could be the water pump or a blockage in the radiator or restriction of airflow to the radiator.
