Mike Pompeo just slammed Iran’s leaders with this comparison

The media is furious over Donald Trump’s Tweet warning Iran’s leaders not to threaten America.

But the Trump administration isn’t retreating from Trump’s position.

In fact, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just doubled-down when he slammed Iran’s leaders with this comparison.

The mainstream media still hasn’t gotten over President Trump withdrawing from Barack Obama’s flawed “nuclear” deal with Iran.


Nevertheless, President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal was likely the only way to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.

Now when President Trump responded to harsh Iranian rhetoric with a stern warning of his own, the media thought they could get Trump’s administration to back off with public pressure.

Pompeo’s recent comment proved that’s not happening.

Reuters reports:

Pompeo, in a California speech to a largely Iranian-American audience, dismissed Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, who negotiated a nuclear deal with the United States and five other countries, as “merely polished front men for the ayatollahs’ international con artistry.”
….
Iran “is run by something that resembles the mafia more than a government,” Pompeo said, citing what he called Iranian leaders’ vast wealth and corruption.
….
Pompeo said senior Iranian leaders had benefited from embezzlement, sweetheart deals and other ill-gotten gains.

Iran’s ayatollahs, he said, were “hypocritical holy men” who “seem more concerned with riches than religion.”

Pompeo’s doubling-down on Trump’s comments with his comparison wasn’t the only sign the administration wasn’t backing down.


Defense Secretary James Mattis said he believes “the president was making very clear they’re on the wrong track.”

He added, “[Iran] cannot continue to show irresponsibility as some revolutionary organization that is intent on exporting terrorism, exporting disruption across the region.”

  1. I agree Donna, 100%!! He was also so sneaky and quiet about things he didn’t want us to know about! He lied about everything, then came across like a nice guy and had all the libs fooled into believing every lying word he said, hook, line and sinker!! President Trump is up front, tells all, just the opposite of Obama!! I would totally rather have the truth whether I agree or disagree, than to be always being lied to and never really knowing what the truth is!!

  2. Your rather ignorant Sandra Lee. There wont be a war. All the fake news and worthless demos said rather forcefully there would be with North Korea. And now north Korea has completely backed down and has begun to dismantle. There will be no war with Iran either. Its all hogwash talk and fuel for the fake news to scare everybody gullible enough to pay attention.

  3. ps. &&& Am glad POTUS DJT IS NOT Doing in the PPL’s WH
    what JFK/Clinton did in 0val & what obama Did
    in WH ‘basement’, playing ‘ping pong’.

  4. Sec. of State Pompeo’s Remarks are quite Profound/
    Brave/Remarkable.
    > Majority of Iranian ppl are not in ‘sink’ w/ so called
    ‘leadership’ .

  5. John, I agree and I am glad we have President Trump because he is tough and will do it, if necessary!!

  6. I always believed that Obama was not an American… He hated that America is a great Country and that it is/was built by European Americans. He’s an A$$… He’s not Globalist…. He’s not evan an Elitist… He’s just an A$$

  7. PEGGY, DO YOU TAKE STUPID PILLS?
    THE QURAN ONLY ACKNOWLEDGES JESUS AS A HUMAN, ONE OF THEIR PROPHETS;
    NOT AS LORD AND SAVIOR AS CHRISTIANS BELIEVE.
    YOU SAY “THE QURAN ‘MENTIONS’ JESUS MORE OFTEN THAN THE BIBLE DOES.
    FYI: THE ENTIRE NEW TESTAMENT IS ABOUT JESUS AND THE ENTIRE
    OLD TESTAMENT POINTS TO THE COMING OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR, JESUS!!
    GET A CLUE BEFORE YOU POST.!

  8. God did NOT need mom and dad’s help to create Adam & Eve.
    God does not need anyone’s help. God creates what He
    wants. Those of His creation who become children of
    Satan and do evil, when they step into eternity will
    face an eternity of torment in the eternal flames of
    hell. I have read the KJV and the NKJV Bible from cover
    to cover SEVENTEEN TIMES and am still doing that.

  9. Rocky, I don’t believe Obongo is stupid, I believe he is a filthy traitor.
    I’m so thankful that the Lord sent Pres. Trump to save us from the
    treachery of our enemies.

  10. The only rules is that the government can’t force anyone to belong to any religion. Thomas Jefferson wrote a letter to a baptist congregation in Danbury conn. assuring them of this and referred to a seperation of church and state. The liberal retards have used this to drive God out of our country. Hasn’t worked yet. He’s still here.
