Politico reports that President Donald Trump is trying to reach a new deal with Iran.
He has chosen Rand Paul to help broker a back channel deal.
Paul suggested being the conduit between the US and Iran over a round of golf this past weekend.
Trump gave Paul his blessing for the sensitive diplomatic mission.
Paul proposed sitting down with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to extend a fresh olive branch on the president’s behalf.
The aim is to reduce tensions between the two countries.
