U.S. President Donald Trump rejected Iran’s proposal to lift sanctions against Tehran Saturday. “Iranian Foreign Minister says Iran wants to negotiate with The United States, but wants sanctions removed. No Thanks!,” Trump wrote on Twitter. Trump’s comments were in repose to an interview Friday, in which Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif told German magazine, Der Spiegel, that go get back to negotiations, the U.S. would need to eliminate the economic penalties. “The Trump administration can correct its past, lift the sanctions and come back to the negotiating table. We’re still at the negotiating table. They’re the ones who left,” he said. Iran’s Supreme Leader, who bestowed the country’s highest honor on Soleimani last year, vowed “severe retaliation” in response to his killing.
