Trump says Iran may speak with US ‘pretty soon’

TAMPA, Aug 1, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – US President Donald Trump suggested Tuesday that talks with arch foe Iran were imminent, despite silence from the Islamic republic’s leaders to his offer for a meeting.

“I have a feeling they’ll be talking to us pretty soon,” Trump told a rally in Tampa, Florida, before adding: “and maybe not, and that’s ok too.”

He also used the occasion to again blast the “horrible, one-sided” Iran nuclear deal with world powers from which the American president withdrew.
