Iran's president poured scorn on Wednesday on U.S. and European discussions over Tehran's nuclear agreement, and dismissed Donald Trump as a "tradesman" who lacked the qualifications to deal with a complex international pact.Hassan Rouhani spoke after French President Emmanuel Macron flew to Washington to try to persuade Trump not to scrap the 2015 agreement -- under which Iran curbed its nuclear program in return for the lifting of sanctions.In a bid to salvage the deal while satisfying Trump's call for tougher action, Macron's has proposed that the United States and Europe block any Iranian nuclear activity until 2025 and beyond, address Iran's ballistic missile program and generate conditions for a political solution to contain Iran in Yemen, Syria, Iraq and Lebanon.
