The Islamic Republic of Iran is becoming blatantly hostile towards the United States.
Ali Akbar Velayati, the man who advises Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, made it clear on Thursday that Iran has no plans of slowing down its nuclear program and threatened the United States if any further actions are taken.
The aide to Iran's supreme leader ripped an "inexperienced" President Donald Trump and assured the world that his country would continue ballistic missile testing.
"This is not the first time that an inexperienced person has threatened Iran," Velayati said. "Iran is the strongest power in the region and has a lot of political, economic and military power ... America should be careful about making empty threats to Iran."
"Iran will continue to test its capabilities in ballistic missiles and Iran will not ask any country for permission in defending itself," he said.
President Trump has released several messages over the past 24 hours, including a message that put Iran "on notice."
