Trump remained open to negotiations with Iran without preconditions on its nuclear program and will maintain a tough economic sanctions regime on Tehran in the meantime, the official said. He called President Barack Obama's nuclear deal with Iran "ridiculous". But he acknowledged the senator's role Friday in response to a question about the administration's plan to calm tensions following Iran's seizure of a British oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz.
