An Iranian lawmaker offered a $3 million (2.3 million pounds) reward to anyone who killed U.S. President Donald Trump and said Iran could avoid threats if it had nuclear arms.

Axar.az reports citing Reuters that tensions have steadily escalated since Trump pulled Washington out of Tehran’s nuclear agreement with world powers in 2018 and reimposed U.S. sanctions. The standoff erupted into tit-for-tat military strikes this month.

“On behalf of the people of Kerman province, we will pay a $3 million reward in cash to whoever kills Trump,” lawmaker Ahmad Hamzeh told the 290-seat parliament.

He did not say if the idea of a reward had any official backing from Iran’s clerical rulers.

“If we had nuclear weapons today, we would be protected from threats ... We should put the production of long-range missiles capable of carrying unconventional warheads on our agenda. This is our natural right,” he was quoted.
