US calls Iran’s $3m reward to kill Trump ‘ridiculous’

GENEVA: A US envoy on Tuesday called an Iranian lawmaker’s offer of a $3 million reward to anyone who killed US President Donald Trump “ridiculous” and said it pointed to the “terrorist underpinnings” of the Iranian government.
“It’s just ridiculous but it gives you a sense of the terrorist underpinnings of that regime and that regime needs to change its behavior,” Robert Wood, US disarmament ambassador, told reporters in Geneva.
