In response to President Trump pulling the United States out of the nuclear agreement with Iran and reimposing severe economic sanctions which will limit the regime's cash flow, members of the Iranian government are responding in typical fashion.
During a parliamentary session earlier today, members burned a paper American flag and chanted "death to America!"

Shortly after President Trump announced his decision to leave the deal, Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei said Iran is being unfairly targeted by the U.S.
The reason for the U.S.'s enmity towards the Islamic Republic's establishment is that the United States had thorough domination over Iran, but the Islamic Revolution severed its hands from Iran.— Khamenei.ir (@khamenei_ir) May 9, 2018
U.S. pres.'s shallow & ludicrous behavior wasn't unexpected. The same behavior existed in previous US presidents. Yet, Iranian nation is persistent while former U.S. presidents passed away & IRI is still standing. This man's corpse will also be worm food while IRI stands strong.— Khamenei.ir (@khamenei_ir) May 9, 2018
Further, Iran plans to increase spending for its ballistic missile program as the domestic economy continues to fall apart.
A prominent Iranian lawmaker says parliament is preparing to increase spending on the country's ballistic missile program.
The head of Iran's parliamentary committee on national security and foreign policy, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, made the comments Wednesday after President Donald Trump's decision to pull America out of the nuclear deal.
