Iran has been America’s enemy since taking our embassy personnel hostage in 1979.
Since then, America and Iran have been engaged in a decade’s long proxy war.
Now Iran’s Supreme Leader just issued an insane challenge to Trump.
Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, used the opportunity of Donald Trump’s response to the violence in Charlottesville to try and weaken America.
He tweeted out that America must tackle its “white supremacy problem.”

World leaders piled on Trump.
These globalists who oppose Trump’s America First agenda took the opportunity to blast the President so the compliant press in America could use their outrage as evidence Trump is a failure.
And in a shameful display, CNN even included Ayatollah Khamenei as a world leader who was critical of Trump’s response.
Even Iran weighed in Wednesday on the controversy over Trump’s remarks.
“Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei — himself an on-the-record Holocaust denier — issued a statement on his official website in reference to Charlottesville in which he said the US should fix its racial-discrimination issues and mind its own business on the international stage.
“If you are a powerful state, then go manage your own country! If you really care, then tackle the insecurities and violence on the streets of Washington DC, New York City, and Los Angeles! If you really care, go fix racial discrimination and the disastrous violations of human rights for both whites and blacks in your own country! Mind your own business, rather than meddling with other nations’ affairs!” he said.”
It is in Iran’s interest to sap Trump’s strength domestically.
Trump has to certify the Iran nuclear deal which freed the rogue nation from sanctions and put them on the path to obtaining a nuclear weapon.
Trump has declared that Iran is not in compliance with the deal and has hinted he may tear it up at the next review period in September.
But if Trump is bogged down in domestic political crisis’s he may not want to pick another fight with the foreign policy establishment – which unanimously favors the agreement.
Iran’s motive was obvious.
Yet the media was still willing to publish their attack in order to score cheap political points against Trump.
