President Donald Trump sent out another tweet regarding the rising tensions with Iran, saying that the news media has been publishing false information.

“The Fake News put out a typically false statement, without any knowledge that the United States was trying to set up a negotiation with Iran,” the president wrote. “This is a false report.”

Trump continued with the tweet, stating that “Iran will call us if and when they are ever ready. In the meantime, their economy continues to collapse - very sad for the Iranian people!”

It is unclear as to what news report the president is complaining about.

The Los Angeles Times ran a headline on Sunday, “Trump’s plaintive but welcome message to Iran: Can we talk?” for an article by longtime columnist Doyle McManus.

In the column, McManus suggested that Trump’s “tough talk and menacing warships” fits a familiar pattern for him where his end game is to force negotiations.

McManus wrote, “For Trump, the solution is simple: direct negotiations with Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, much like the two summits he has held with North Korea’s Kim.”

However, it is uncertain if Trump was referring to this, a similar report, or something else entirely.
