Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei while delivering a message during a Friday prayer has called United States President Donald Trump, a “clown” and also he defended Iran’s military missiles attack on the U.S.
In his address Khamenei called the U.S. drone strike that killed Iran Quds Forces commander, Soleimani, a “cowardly act” while Iran’s response had “dealt a blow to America’s image” as a great power. He reiterated his vow to force U.S. troops out of the region.
Khamenei last delivered a Friday sermon in February 2012, when he called Israel a “cancerous tumor” and vowed to support anyone confronting it. He also warned against any U.S. strikes on Iran over its nuclear program, saying the U.S. would be damaged “10 times over.”
