Iran’s foreign minister called US President Donald Trump’s peace plan for the Middle East “delusional” in a tweet on Monday, Reuters reports.

“Instead of a delusional ‘Deal of the Century’ — which will be D.O.A.— self-described ‘champions of democracy’ would do better to accept Iran’s democratic solution proposed by Ayatollah @khamenei_ir: A referendum whereby ALL Palestinians —Muslim, Jew or Christian — decide their future,” Zarif wrote.

Trump said on Monday that the White House would release his long-delayed Middle East peace plan at noon on Tuesday.
