Following North Korea referring to President Donald Trump as 'dotard', the Supreme Leader of Iran has referred to Trump as 'mentally retarded'.
In the latest war of words between the United States and North Korea, Kim Jong Un did not pull any punches. But he may have pulled out an old dictionary. “I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire,” Kim declared in an unusually direct and angry statement published Thursday by North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency.
Iran’s supreme leader has described Donald Trump as “mentally retarded” as he urged Europe to do more to back the 2015 nuclear deal, following the US president’s refusal to recertify the pact. While offering harsh criticism of Mr Trump, Ayatollah Khamenei wants to ensure Tehran continues to have access to the international market for its crude oil as part of efforts to revive a stagnant economy. He said: “I will not spend time to respond to the nonsensical comments by the foul-mouthed president,” and referred to Mr Trump and his administration as “mentally retarded”.
