Iran president warns of 'problems' as Trump decision looms

  Iran president warns of 'problems' as Trump decision looms Iran's president has warned the country could face "some problems" ahead of President Donald Trump's decision on whether to pull out of its nuclear deal with world powers. Without directly naming Trump, Rouhani's remarks at a petroleum conference in Tehran represented the first official Iranian comment on the U.S. president's overnight tweet that he'd make an announcement on the deal Tuesday."It is possible that we will face some problems for two or three months, but we will pass through this," Rouhani said.

In races for Congress, governor and other offices, dozens of insurgent Republican candidates are touting their ties to Mr. Trump , echoing his slogans and seeking his endorsement against GOP rivals who are more conventional.

Few Idaho candidates backed Trump in early 2016. Now, many invoke his name. By Cynthia Sewell, Idaho Statesman. But some of the candidates are treading carefully, avoiding an inconvenient truth: They didn't necessarily vote for him in 2016, when his candidacy polarized the GOP.

But on the stump on Monday, Blankenship reportedly said the deadly explosion was caused by the US government.

After his release from prison in May last year, he launched his political candidacy as an ultra-conservative vowing to thwart mainstream Republicans in Washington.

He has particularly targeted Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell, claiming he is a "swamp captain" who has "given millions of jobs to China people."

"While doing so, Mitch has gotten rich," Blankenship says in one TV message. "In fact, his China family has given him tens of millions of dollars."

Mr McConnell's wife, US Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao, was born in Taiwan and is of Chinese descent.

A haul of the drug was reportedly found in 2014 by Colombian authorities being smuggled aboard a cargo ship linked to a firm owned by Mr McConnell's in-laws, the Chaos, though they were not implicated.

In a statement responding to Mr Trump's comments on Monday, Blankenship said: "The establishment is misinforming him because they do not want me to be in the US Senate and promote the President's agenda."

In a radio advert released on Monday, he tells voters that "establishment politicians are getting desperate and more hostile".

"They are calling me a bigot, a moron, a despicable character, and mentally ill."

His new advert includes an attack on the media, saying: "The fake news is also pretending to be offended by the use of my words, 'China people.' They seem not to realise that China is a country, not a race."

What happened in Alabama?

"Remember Alabama," Mr Trump added in Monday's tweet, referring to the failed special election campaign of Republican Roy Moore, who lost his Senate bid amid claims of inappropriate behaviour with underage girls.

The president's tweet did not mention that it was he who originally endorsed Mr Moore.

Blankenship hit back on Monday: "We all really like President Trump's policies but we know he doesn't get things right.

"He recommended people vote for a guy that was basically accused of pedophilia in Alabama."

Mr Moore, a former Alabama Supreme Court judge, crashed out of the race, handing Democrats their first Senate victory in the Deep South state since 1992.
