Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stood before a big crowd celebrating the Islamic Revolution’s 40th anniversary on Monday and vowed to boost his country’s military and ballistic missile program, defying US pressure and sanctions.
‘Death to America’
‘Conflict with the Islamic Republic would fail’
‘Trump shouldn’t be involved’
In a tweet written on the anniversary that he also sent out in Farsi, Trump said the revolution had been a complete failure.
40 years of corruption. 40 years of repression. 40 years of terror. The regime in Iran has produced only #40YearsofFailure. The long-suffering Iranian people deserve a much brighter future. pic.twitter.com/bA8YGsw9LA
