    Iran's Khamenei: No war, no negotiations with Trump

    Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has ruled out negotiations with the administration of US President Donald Trump, going toe-to-toe with him in a series of social media posts. "Even if we ever - impossible as it is - negotiated with the US, it would never ever be with the current US administration," Khamenei said on Monday.
