President Trump sent a message in Persian on Monday’s anniversary of Iran’s revolution

The Hill

President Trump on Monday tweeted a message in Persian slamming Iran’s leadership on the 40th anniversary of the Iranian revolution.

Iran held a ceremony Monday to mark the anniversary of the 1979 revolution that transformed Iran into an Islamic republic, commemorating the day when followers of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini toppled the Shah of Iran.

During the ceremony, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani touted the country’s military and pledged to overcome U.S. efforts to isolate Tehran.

“We will not let America become victorious … Iranian people have and will have some economic difficulties but we will overcome the problems by helping each other,” Rouhani said.

The Trump administration has taken a hard-line approach to Iran, with Trump pulling out of the Obama-era nuclear deal with Iran last year. As part of withdrawing from the agreement, the Trump administration has reimposed sanctions that are squeezing Iran’s economy.

The administration is also hosting a global conference in Poland this week to discuss the Middle East, expected to focus largely on Iran. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Vice President Pence will be in attendance.
