President Donald Trump said he doesn’t want to meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at a summit next week in New York.

“I’m not looking to meet him. I don’t think they’re ready yet. But they’ll be ready,” Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One on Monday. “At the right time, they’ll be ready. I never rule anything out, but I prefer not meeting him.”
