Iranian MP offers $3M reward for killing Trump

Iranian lawmaker Ahmad Hamzeh offered a $3 million reward on Tuesday to anyone who killed United States President Donald Trump.

"On behalf of the people of Kerman province, we will pay a $3 million reward in cash to whoever kills Trump," Hamzeh told parliament, according to ISNA. He also claimed it is Iran's "natural right" to develop nuclear weapons. "We should put the production of long-range missiles capable of carrying unconventional warheads on our agenda," Hamzeh stated. "If we had nuclear weapons today, we would be protected from threats," he added.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington rose after the US assassinated Iranian Quds Force head Qassem Soleimani, which provoked retaliatory strikes from Iran on American military bases in Iraq. Tehran also further scaled back its nuclear deal commitments and said it will end all limitations on its uranium enrichment.
