Rouhani also taunted Trump himself as he told Iranian media agencies, “Some inexperienced people in the region and in the US threaten Iran. They should know that the language of threats will never work on Iran. They should learn to respect us.”
Rouhani’s speech was published along with footage of Iranians stomping on pictures of Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In addition, Iranians were seen stomping on pictures of the American and Israeli flags.
