Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, spoke publicly Tuesday to condemn President Trump's fiery rhetoric toward the Middle Eastern nation.
Khamenei rarely speaks publicly. Iran's recent tests of a ballistic missile have drawn Trump's ire and new sanctions, and Trump has threatened he will not be as "kind" with Iran as former President Barack Obama was.
Khamenei, in response, thanked Trump, who "showed the real face of America."
I don't know Putin, have no deals in Russia, and the haters are going crazy - yet Obama can make a deal with Iran, #1 in terror, no problem!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 7, 2017
Trump called Iran "#1 in terror," without evidence, on Twitter Tuesday.
Iran is playing with fire - they don't appreciate how "kind" President Obama was to them. Not me!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 3, 2017
Trump said Iran didn't "appreciate" Obama's policies.
We should be thankful because he brought war and bloodshed to Syria and Iraq...that's what we should be thankful of?
Khamenei attacked Trump's tweets, saying instead of being thankful for Obama's policies, he was thankful for Trump's honesty.
"We will show on the anniversary of our revolution how we respond to his threats," Khamenei said. "No enemy can paralyze Iran."
Here's a look at the crowd Khamenei drew.
Khamenei also referenced Artiman Jalali, a five-year-old boy who was detained at Washington's Dulles International Airport during Trump's travel ban, NBC News reports.
Trump has "shown his human rights by handcuffing a five-year-old child," he said.
