Khamenei’s spittle-flecked rage is itself an indication that President Trump has done the right thing in withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal.
“Khamenei to Trump: ‘You Will Go to Hell,'” by Patrick Goodenough, CNS News, May 10, 2018:
(CNSNews.com) – Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in a speech Wednesday berated President Donald Trump for withdrawing from the nuclear deal, but said that the Islamic Republic of Iran will be standing strong long after Trump’s corpse is “worm food.”
Khamenei said of Trump: “You will go to hell with your failures.”
“A few days ago, Trump wrote a letter to the leaders of some Persian Gulf countries, to which we have access,” Khamenei said in a pseech addressing staff and students at a teacher-training university in Tehran.
“In the letter, he indicated that he spent $7 trillion on these countries, so they must adhere to his orders. Well, Trump, you have spent all this money to dominate Syria and Iraq, but you couldn’t do it; you will go to hell with your failures.”
“U.S. pres.’s shallow & ludicrous behavior wasn’t unexpected,” Khamenei said in a speech in a “Speech Celebrating Teachers’ Week” at Farhangian University. “The same behavior existed in previous U.S. presidents. Yet, Iranian nation is persistent while former U.S. presidents passed away & IRI is still standing. This man’s corpse will also be worm food while IRI stands strong.”
Khamenei said Trump’s announcement of withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) had included “shallow and lewd remarks” as well as “several lies.”
“He threatened the Iranian government and people,” he said. “I answer him, as a representative of the Iranian population: ‘Donald Trump, you cannot lift one finger against us.’” (One translation of his remarks rendered the phrase as ‘Like hell you will!”)…
