    Iran's president is warning President Donald Trump that pulling America out of the nuclear deal with world powers would be a "historic regret."

    President Hassan Rouhani made the comments Sunday in the city of Sabzevar while on a tour of Iran's Razavi Khorasan province.

    Rouhani said: "If (the U.S.) opts to pull out of the nuclear deal, it will soon realize that this decision will become a historic regret for them."

    Rouhani also assured Iranians that "no change will occur in our lives next week" regardless of Trump's decision.
