Iran's Message to Trump: "The U.S. is Our Enemy"

Posted: Dec 06, 2016 12:30 PM

The Islamic Republic of Iran made it clear on Tuesday that U.S. President Donald Trump will not "tear up" Barack Obama's nuclear deal with the radical country, and also warned Tehran will react to any extension of American sanctions.

Iranian president, Hassan Rouhani, made the comments during a speech at the University of Tehran.

"The U.S. is our enemy," Rouhani said. "They want to put pressure on us as much as they can."

Rouhani never mentioned Trump by name in his speech, instead called him "some man ... elected in the U.S."

"Whatever plans he has, it will be revealed later," Rouhani said. "He may desire to weaken the nuclear deal. He may desire to rip up the deal. Do you suppose we will allow this? Will our nation allow this?"

Trump has often said that the Iran deal may be one of the worst deals in deal-making history.
