Twitter wars: Trump and Khameini exchange jabs following Iran protests

3-4 minutes
The Ayatollah said in a tweet that "the villainous US govt repeatedly says that they are standing by the Iranian ppl. They lie."

It's 2020, so naturally, the tense diplomatic debate between the US and Iran seems to now be unfolding, at least partly, on Twitter.

'Supreme leader' of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, posted a screengrab on Friday evening of a tweet by US President Donald Trump which was posted a week earlier, wherein the president voiced support for Iranian protesters.

The Ayatollah said in the tweet that "the villainous US govt repeatedly says that they are standing by the Iranian ppl. They lie."

He continued, claiming that if the US is "standing by the Iranian ppl, it is only to stab them in the heart with your venomous daggers. Of course, you have so far failed to do so, & you will certainly continue to fail."

US President Donald Trump responded on twitter 11 hours later, tweeting his support for the protesters in Iran in both English and Farsi. Perhaps in response to the English tweet used by the Ayatollah.

In the tweet, he says that "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."

He finished his tweet by revising his 2016 slogan, saying that "Instead of leading Iran toward ruin, its leaders should abandon terror and Make Iran Great Again!"

In a previous tweet, Trump said Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei should be very careful about what he says after Khamenei harshly criticized the United States in a Friday prayers sermon in Tehran.

"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," Trump said in a tweet.

"Their economy is crashing, and their people are suffering. He should be very careful with his words!"

Khomeini's previous tweets on Friday evening also targeted the anti-Soleimani protesters and the words of support they received from Trump on twitter.

Regarding the protesters he asked "are the few hundred people who disrespected posters of Iran's honorable Martyr General Soleimani “the people of Iran? Or, are the millions who attended his funeral the Iranian people?"


The 'Supreme leader' then turned his online ire directly to the US government, saying "These American clowns lie in utter viciousness that they stand with the Iranian people. See who the people of #Iran are."
