Iranian Foreign Ministry lashes out at Donald Trump’s tweet

TEHRAN - Iran s foreign ministry responded to US President Donald Trump s latest Twitter attack, saying he should focus on "homeless and hungry people" in his own country rather than insulting Iranians.

"Instead of wasting his time sending useless and insulting tweets regarding other countries, he would be better off seeing to the domestic issues of his own country such as daily killings of dozens of people... and the existence of millions of homeless and hungry people," said ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi.

Meanwhile, Trump praised Iranian protesters for acting against Tehran s "brutal and corrupt" regime after days of bloody unrest, while also lashing out at his predecessor Barack Obama.

"The people of Iran are finally acting against the brutal and corrupt Iranian regime," Trump tweeted, a day after calling for regime change in the Islamic republic.

"All of the money that President Obama so foolishly gave them went into terrorism and into their pockets. The people have little food, big inflation and no human rights. The US is watching!"
