A white student who stands accused of brutally beating a black teacher’s assistant was released without bail on Wednesday, the Star-Tribune reports.

Corey David Burfield, 18, of St. Paul , is charged with one count of first-degree assault and one count of third-degree assault. He was allowed to go home after his mother said she would watch him, and was allowed to leave jail without posting any bail.

The victim, Mohammed Dukuly, had worked for the school for about 10 years. He was well-liked by students, some of whom told the Star-Tribune that “nobody ever put hands on Dukuly.”

According to reports of the the attack at Harrison Education Center, Burfield knocked him to the ground and punched him several times, leaving him unresponsive. Dukuly had been in ICU on a ventilator but is now opening his eyes and moving his arms and legs.

“Quite frankly, we are disappointed,” Imam Mohammed Dukuly, the victim’s uncle, told reporters after the court appearance. “For a serious case like this, I think he should’ve been on bail.”

Writing on Twitter, the president accused Iran of making a "very ignorant and insulting statement" against him, which he said "only shows that they do not understand reality."

The president then threatened the nation with "obliteration" if it didn't wise up.

"Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force," he wrote. "In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No more John Kerry & Obama!"

‘Incoherent’ Trump blistered by ex-National Security Council member for acting as Putin’s unwitting stooge

In a ferocious column for Politico, a former member of the National Security Council who served under both President George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton called out Donald Trump for what he called the president's "incomprehensible" policies when it comes to Russia.

According to Andrew S. Weiss, vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment, the American president is likely the best friend Russian President Vladimir Putin could wish for.

Pointing out that Trump's meeting with Putin in Osaka is only days away, Weiss, who worked on Russian affairs in the State Department, said the get-together is happening just as three government officials with the most experience dealing with Russia -- Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Joseph Dunford, the NSC’s in-house Russia expert Fiona Hill, and U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman -- are leaving the administration.
