BREAKING: Trump Fires Back After Iran’s Supreme Leader Calls Him a “Clown”

President Trump has issued a response to Supreme Leader of Iran Khamenei after Khamenei called him a “clown” earlier in the day.

CNBC reports Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has called President Donald Trump a “clown” who merely pretends to support Iranian citizens but would push a “poisonous dagger” into their backs.

The 80-year-old said Friday that the U.S. showed its terrorist nature in killing the former Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani, according to a Reuters translation, before adding the “assassination” was a disgrace to the U.S. administration.

He also described Tehran’s decision to attack military bases housing U.S. troops in Iraq earlier this month as a “day of God.”

His comments came as he led Friday prayers for the first time in eight years.

President Trump has now tweeted in response:

The so-called “Supreme Leader” of Iran, who has not been so Supreme lately, had some nasty things to say about the United States and Europe. Their economy is crashing, and their people are suffering. He should be very careful with his words!

The noble people of Iran—who love America—deserve a government that’s more interested in helping them achieve their dreams than killing them for demanding respect. Instead of leading Iran toward ruin, its leaders should abandon terror and Make Iran Great Again!
