A U.S. envoy on Tuesday called an Iranian lawmaker's offer of a $3 million reward to anyone who killed U.S. President Donald Trump "ridiculous" and said it pointed to the "terrorist underpinnings" of the Iranian government.

"It's just ridiculous but it gives you a sense of the terrorist underpinnings of that regime and that regime needs to change its behavior," Robert Wood, U.S. disarmament ambassador, told reporters in Geneva.

The bounty came from a lawmaker who represents the home province of the late Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in a Jan. 3 raid ordered by Trump.

"On behalf of people of Kerman province, we will pay $3 million award in cash to whoever kills Trump," said Ahmad Hamzeh from Kerman, where Soleimani was born and now is buried.
