The announcement on live state TV said, “Iran has 80m inhabitants. Based on the Iranian population, we want to raise $80m (£61m) which is a reward for those who get close to the head of President Trump.”
On Monday morning Abolfazl Aboutorabi and Iranian MP has threatened to attack the “White House.”
According to Iranian Labour news agency the MP said, “We can attack the White House itself, we can respond to them on the American soil.
“We have the power, and God willing we will respond in an appropriate time.”
