Trump Calls Iran "Terrorist Nation Number One", Doesn't Rule Out Military Option

The statement comes amid ongoing tensions between Washington and Tehran, which escalated on 8 May, when the Islamic Republic suspended its participation in the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. The move was followed by the US sending an aircraft strike group, Patriot interceptors and B-52 bombers to the Middle East to tackle the alleged Iranian threat.

US President Donald Trump has underscored that even though he is ready to sit down with Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, he hasn't ruled out military action against Tehran.

“So Iran is a place that was extremely hostile when I first came into office. They were a terrorist nation number one in the world at that time and probably maybe are today,” Trump told the British news network ITV.
