Navideshahed - In a meeting with IRGC personnel and their family members in the capital, Tehran, on Tuesday, which is IRGC Commemoration Day, Ayatollah Khamenei said the IRGC was on the front-lines of the fight against enemies both inside and outside of Iran.
"The IRGC is the vanguard both on the field confronting the enemy on the [Iranian] borders and even several thousand kilometers away... [in Syria] and on the political battleground facing the enemy,” the Leader said, adding that the Americans hold a grudge against the force because of that reason.
Trump on Monday released a statement designating the IRGC "a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) under Section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act.”
Ayatollah Khamenei said such evil will rebound to the evildoer.
"Of course, such malice will lead to nowhere; and, with the their deceit rebounding back to themselves, the Islamic Republic’s enemies — such as Trump and the idiots... in the US government — are reaching rock bottom,” the Leader said.
