Trump Will 'Be Worm Food' Before Iran Falls, Ayatollah Khamenei Says Amid Nuclear Deal Fallout

President Donald Trump's "corpse" will be "worm food" long before Iran's government and nation falls, the country's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Wednesday, after Trump's decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal.

Khamenei took to Twitter to bash the president and proclaimed that Iran has persisted for years, long after other U.S. presidents have left office or died.

"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 tweeted, referring to the Islamic Republic of Iran as IRI.

Before that message, Khamenei accused Trump of lying during his announcement.

"Last night you heard the shallow statements Trump made. There were several lies in his speech. He threatened the Iranian govt. and the Iranian nation, claiming he would do one thing or another. On behalf of Iranian nation: 'Mr. Trump, you couldn't lift a finger if you tried,'" Khamenei said.

Trump has not responded to Khamenei's messages, but he has publicly clashed with world leaders before. The president spent much of last year threatening North Korea's Kim Jong Un and nicknamed him "Little Rocket man," even during a speech before the United Nations.

During his speech Tuesday, Trump said the Iran nuclear accord forged under the Obama administration in 2015 should never have been signed, and he fulfilled a campaign promise to end the U.S.'s involvement. Trump also announced plans to reinstate sanctions against Iran.

European allies tried to sway Trump's decision in the days leading up to his announcement. Iran has said it will still comply with the accord, which included Great Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia, but now European companies may have to deal with fresh sanctions on Iran.
