Trump lashes out at Iran in his first 2018 tweets, says the Republic
WASHINGTON - Minutes after lashing out at Pakistan on Monday, Trump turned to Iran, saying that the Islamic Republic “is failing at every level.” He also took the opportunity to once again hit out at the 2015 agreement on the Iranian nuclear program, which he called a “terrible deal.”

He also commented on the ongoing massive protests that engulf Iran, saying that Iranians “are hungry… for freedom” and “it is time for change.” He already made a series of similar comments just a day earlier, which provoked an angry reaction in Tehran.

At that time, President Hassan Rouhani slammed Trump for his comments, saying that those who call Iranians terrorists have absolutely no moral right to pose as defenders of their rights. On January 1, Rouhani said that the protests in the Islamic Republic were partially a result of foreign interference by forces seeking to destabilize Iran.

“The enemies of the Islamic Republic of Iran are angry with the glory, success, and the progress of the Iranian nation and they have vowed to get the regional troubles into Iran, but, sure, the people and officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran will respond to them,” he said, as cited by Mehr news agency. At the same time, he noted that “the people on the streets are not those commanded by foreigners” and the developments of the recent days are “a threat which has to be converted into an opportunity” by finding out the “deep causes” of the existing problems.

Iran has been gripped by nationwide protests since December 28, both anti- and pro-government. According to local media, at least 10 people have been killed. Over 400 people have reportedly been arrested following the protests.
