“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!” Trump tweeted.
“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!”
He posted the same message in Farsi, Iran’s language. Since the present situation of tension broke out, Donald Trump has been tweeting in Farsi language.
Iran ministers are however not happy with Trump tweeting in Farsi. It’s a dishonour to the ancient language, Iranian foreign ministry spokesperson had earlier said.
