Mnuchin said Thursday that such a meeting is "not planned at the moment," even though Trump has made clear "he would sit down with Rouhani with no condition" to discuss Iran's nuclear program.

Mnuchin also insists that the recent departure of former national security adviser John Bolton will not dramatically change the Trump administration's posture on Iran. He says he and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (pahm-PAY'-oh) "have been executing the president's maximum pressure campaign" so there's no "sea change."

Bolton was a hardliner on Iran who was skeptical of engagement.
