IRAN SAID WEDNESDAY IT arrested an American "some time ago," confirming earlier U.S. media reports that the country had detained U.S. Navy Veteran Michael R. White.

White is the first known American to be detained under President Donald Trump, and his arrest threatens to worsen already-deteriorated relations with the country.

The semi-official Tasnim news agency reported the confirmation, quoting Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi, according to the Associated Press.

Ghasemi said an American citizen was arrested in the city of Mashhad and his case was conveyed to the U.S. during the first days of his incarceration. Mashhad, a destination for religious pilgrims, is in northeast Iran.

White's detention was first reported by online site IranWire, which is run by a group of Iranian journalists. The site interviewed a former Iranian prisoner who said he met White in an Iranian prison in the fall.

1. 0bama made this possible. He paid billions in ransom to Iran.

Until 0bama, the US never paid ransom to terrorists. One weak president, and innocent Americans will suffer for decades.
Thanks, 0bama. You built this.
