Attack Condolences: Keep It To Yourself, Iran Suggests To Trump

Iran's foreign minister on Thursday rejected Donald Trump's condolences for deadly attacks in Tehran, calling the U.S. president's words repugnant.

Trump had said he prayed for the victims of Wednesday's attacks that were claimed by Islamic State, but added that "states that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil they promote."

Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote on his Twitter account: "Repugnant White House statement .... Iranian people reject such U.S. claims of friendship."

Well, did Trump say too much?

  2. You cannot sympathize with people and use the same opportunity to throw jab or score point. It was the same thing he did in London. Reach out to the families of the dead and move on. He be doing too much. Newyorker
