WASHINGTON — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump says his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, was responsible for negotiations that led to a $400 million U.S. payment to Iran when she was secretary of state. Reacting to a Wall Street Journal story published Wednesday that described the delivery of the $400 million in cash to Tehran in January, Trump accused Clinton on Twitter of having opened talks to give Iran the money.
TRUMP, in a tweet on Wednesday: “Our incompetent Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, was the one who started talks to give 400 million dollars, in cash, to Iran. Scandal!”
