FM: Iran Concerned About Trump's Unchecked Nuclear Power

TEHRAN (FNA)- Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif voiced Iran's concern over "unchecked authority" over nuclear bombs granted to US President Donald Trump.

"A rogue president who sought vengeance against his OWN people has been doing much worse to our people—and others—in the past 4 years," Zarif tweeted on Thursday.

“What's disturbing is that the same man has the UNCHECKED authority to start a nuclear war; a security concern for the entire international community,” he added.

Zarif's remarks came after pro-Trump protesters stormed the US Capitol building on Wednesday night, destroying property and seizing the rotunda room, as Congress was trying to certify the results of Democrat Joe Biden's presidential victory.

Many senators and representatives have blamed Trump for inciting violence after the election and particularly in Wednesday night's incidents.
