Iran's Supreme Leader Says Trump 'Reveals America's Real Face'
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said he is grateful
to U.S. President Donald Trump for showing "the real face of America."
Khamenei's website quoted him as making the comments in a February 7 meeting
with military commanders in Tehran.

"What we have said for more than 30 years -- that there is political,
economic, moral, and social corruption in the ruling system of the United States
-- this gentleman came and brought it out into the open in the election and
after the election," he said.
Khamenei also warned that "no enemy can paralyze the Iranian nation" and called
on Iranians to respond to Trump's "threats" on this week's anniversary of Iran's
1979 Islamic Revolution.
"The Iranian people will respond to his words on February 10, and will show
their stance against such threats," Khamenei said.
The Trump administration last week imposed new sanctions on more than two dozen
Iranian companies and individuals after Tehran tested a ballistic missile.
Ahead of the measure, Trump tweeted that Iran's leaders "should have been
thankful for the terrible deal the U.S. made with them!"
The U.S. president has denounced the July 2015 nuclear accord between world
powers and Iran a "disaster." The deal imposed curbs on Tehran's nuclear program
in exchange for lifting sanctions.

Earlier on February 7, Iranian President Hassan Rohani said that, despite what
Trump thinks, the nuclear agreement was a "win-win agreement."
"The new U.S. president reads the text of the nuclear deal but cannot accept
it," Rohani said in a February 7 speech broadcast live on state television. "He
says this is the worst deal in history."
But the Iranian president said the agreement could be used "as an example for
other talks to bring stability and security to the region."
On February 6, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on "responsible"
countries to follow the U.S. president's lead.
The United States and Israel say Iran's January 29 ballistic-missile launch
defied a 2015 UN Security Council resolution calling on Tehran not to test
nuclear-capable missiles. Iran denies that.
