The White House was blindsided by the arrival of Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif on Sunday in the coastal French town where President Trump and other world leaders are meeting this weekend, according to three U.S. officials.
It’s unclear how much notice Trump had of Zarif’s arrival in Biarritz, France, the site of this year’s Group of Seven summit. When asked about it, the president told reporters he had no comment.
A spokesman for Zarif announced Zarif had arrived in Biarritz at the invitation of the French foreign minister “to continue talks” between the Iranian and French governments. The statement followed reports of an Iranian government plane landing in Biarritz.
“No one was expecting it,” one U.S. official said of Zarif’s arrival. “It was a surprise.”
No one would have done such a thing to President Obama.
Trump is a joke. A worldwide joke.
