An Iranian lawmaker has announced a $3 million reward for the assassination of U.S. President Donald Trump, Reuters reported on Tuesday.
Addressing the Iranian parliament, Iranian MP Ahmad Hamzeh said, “On behalf of the people of Kerman province, we will pay a $3 million reward in cash to whoever kills Trump,” according to the report.
It was unclear if the reward was officially supported by the regime.
The lawmaker also called for the production of long-range missiles capable of delivering “unconventional warheads,” calling it Iran’s “natural right.”
“If we had nuclear weapons today, we would be protected from threats … We should put the production of long-range missiles capable of carrying unconventional warheads on our agenda. This is our natural right.”
Meanwhile on Monday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Tehran would not take any more steps to reduce its commitments to the 2015 nuclear deal, but that if the Europeans continued their “improper behavior” with respect to Iran, it would withdraw from the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
