Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of Iran, called President Trump a “newcomer” in a speech to his people on Iran’s state television.
Iranians tested a ballistic missile last week and President Trump responded to the action with a tweet saying that Iran was “playing with fire.” Trump added that they “don’t appreciate how ‘kind’ President (Barack) Obama was to them. Not me!”
The Ayatollah, who has final say on all major political decisions made in Iran, said to his people on Tuesday:
“Why should we be thankful to the previous U.S. administration? Because it imposed anti-Iranian sanctions? Because of the extremist Islamic State group? Setting the region on fire in Iraq and Syria?”
The Ayatollah also said that President Trump had shown “the real face of the United States” when accusing Iranians of being ungrateful for Obama-approved sanctions.
“We are thankful to Mr. Newcomer, of course, since he has shown the real face of the U.S. and proved what Iran has said for 38 years about the political, economic, social and moral corruption of the U.S. government.” He added that the Iranian people “are not afraid of any threat.”
Trump has continuously referred to the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement as a bad deal. The agreement was hammered out by the Obama administration and allowed Tehran to have sanctions removed if it promised to slow down its uranium enrichment program.
Recently, Iran was admonished by the Trump administration for its latest missile test; Trump imposed new sanctions on Iran’s companies and certain individuals.
