Ayatollah Strikes Back at Trump and Slams US Foreign Policy


Tehran – (GPAAyatollah Ali Khamenei took to Donald Trump’s preferred communication platform today to express disdain for Trump and years of US foreign policy.

Two hours prior to Khamenei’s tweets, Donald Trump called Iran “#1 in terror” and criticized Obama for going through with the nuclear deal. Anyone paying attention to the wars in the Middle East knows that for decades, the United States has been the real aggressor.

The United States is also likely the largest financial backer of terror in the region. Due of course to Washington’s support for extremist states like Saudi Arabia and Qatar. States which Hillary Clinton herself says were providing “clandestine support” for terror groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda.

Khamenei sent out a series of Tweets today first of all striking back at Trump’s terror accusation. Reminding readers that Obama’s administration is directly responsible for the wars in Iraq and Syria as well as the formation of ISIS aka Daesh. He also briefly touches on the suspicion that the CIA was responsible for the 2009 protests in Iran.

The Ayatollah facetiously thanked Trump for finally exposing 30 years of corrupt US foreign policy. He makes it clear that Iran won’t take Trump’s bullying and threats laying down.

In order to point out US hypocrisy, Khamenei also criticized Trump’s Muslim ban as a violation of human rights.
