President TrumpDonald John TrumpPapadopoulos on AG's new powers: 'Trump is now on the offense' Pelosi uses Trump to her advantage Mike Pence delivers West Point commencement address MORE on Monday sounded an optimistic note about future negotiations with Iran, saying at a press conference in Japan that he's not looking for regime change despite increasing tensions between the two countries.
"I’m not looking to hurt Iran at all. I’m looking to have Iran say, ‘no nuclear weapons,'" Trump said during a press conference in Japan.
The president, who as recently as last weekend threatened that war would be "the official end of Iran," appeared far more welcoming to sitting down with the country's leaders. But the two sides have shown few signs of coming to the table as the U.S. readies to deploy additional troops to the region.
In making the case for a renegotiated nuclear pact with Tehran, Trump echoed the same logic that he's used to argue that North Korea will eventually give up its nuclear weapons, thus far to no avail.
"I think we’ll make a deal," Trump said Monday. "I think Iran, again I think Iran has tremendous economic potential. and I look forward to letting them get back to the stage where they can show that.
