Ayatollah Khamenei: We Rubbed American Noses into the Dirt

Ayatollah Khamenei: We Rubbed American Noses into the Dirt

By    |   Thursday, 28 December 2017 09:14 AM

Iran’s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei blasted the U.S. government as one of the "most corrupt" in the world and taunted President Donald Trump for not being as "smart" as Ronald Reagan, the International Business Times is reporting.

The remarks by Khamenei, who wields the highest political clout in Iran, came in a Wednesday speech to the Council of Coordination on Islamic Propagation. 

"Our main enemy, the American regime, rules one of the most corrupt and most oppressive countries," he said. "It supports terrorists. According to reports, it's still supporting Daesh (Arabic name for Islamic State) and others like them. The American government supports the cruel House of Saud in his crimes against Yemen, and it supports the Zionist regime in their crimes against Palestine."

"The American government is trying to divide Iran. It is also profiting from help of some wealthy states in our region. They must know that we will advance, powerfully, with Divine favor, just as we did when we defeated them in our region. Just as we rubbed their noses into the dirt, we will go forward with great power. With Divine permission, we will frustrate America in all areas."

And he criticized Trump, claiming the president would fail if he continues his tough stance on Iran, according to IBT.

"Reagan was more powerful and smarter than Trump, and he was a better actor in making threats, and he also moved against us and they shot down our plane. But Reagan is gone and, according to our beliefs, he now faces God's retribution... while Iran has made great advances in all areas since Reagan's time."

Khamenei was Iran’s president during most of Reagan’s terms in the White House, IBT reported.

IBT posted this tweet from a Twitter account apparently belonging to Khamenei:

And Newsweek noted this is not the first time he has criticized Trump directly.

He also blasted Trump during the presidential campaign, the magazine reported.

In his speech, Khamenei added: "They commit crimes in their own country; the US police kill black women, children and youth and are then acquitted in the court. This is their judiciary system. Then they criticize the judiciaries of other countries, including our faithful judiciary system."
