Iran hits back at Trump for tweeting 'genocidal taunts'

The Iranian foreign minister, Javad Zarif, has hit back at Donald
Trump’s “genocidal taunts” after a strongly worded warning from Trump
that Tehran should not think of attacking the US. “Goaded by #B_Team,” Zarif wrote
on Twitter, in an apparent reference to Trump advisers such as John
Bolton, “@realdonaldTrump hopes to achieve what Alexander, Genghis &
other aggressors failed to do. Iranians have stood tall for millennia
while aggressors all gone. #EconomicTerrorism & genocidal taunts won’t ‘end Iran’.”
He added: “#NeverThreatenAnIranian. Try respect – it works!”
