Speaking during a press conference with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte at the White House Monday afternoon, President Trump made officials of the Iranian regime an offer: a meeting without preconditions.
"I would certainly meet with Iran if they wanted to meet. I don’t know if they’re ready yet. They're having a hard time right now. But I ended the Iran Deal, it was a ridiculous deal. I do believe they will probably end up wanting to meet and I'm ready to meet at anytime they want to,” Trump said. "I don't do that from strength or from weakness. I think it's an appropriate thing to do. If we could work something out that's meaningful, not the waste of paper the other deal was, I would certainly be willing to meet."
"No preconditions, no. If they want to meet, I'll meet. Anytime they want," he continued. "It's good for the country, good for them, good for us and good for the world. No preconditions."
The offer comes nearly two weeks after President Trump fired back at Iranian President Hassan Rouhani for threatening the United States.
So, what's next?
