President Donald Trump on Tuesday angrily hit back at Iran after the nation accused him of being "retarded."


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!"

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said this week that Trump's latest sanctions against Iran would not change his government's behavior and he said it showed a total lack of strategy on the part of the American government.

"The White House actions mean it is mentally retarded," Rouhani said, according to a translation from Al Jazeera English.
