‘A US senator who reportedly advises US President Donald Trump’s White House on foreign policy has repeated baseless allegations against Iran, claiming that Tehran poses danger to the security of the United States.

“The policy of the United States should be regime change in Iran,” said Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton, Politico reported Sunday.

Cotton made the comments as the White House was busy devising a “comprehensive Iran policy,” as Stuart Jones, the acting assistant secretary of State for Near Eastern affairs, told The Associated Press last month.

Meanwhile, senior officials and key allies of the president were reportedly calling for “regime change” in Iran.
