US sanctions on Ali Khamenei: White House is mentally retarded, says Rouhani

After dismissing new sanctions by the United States on the Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, President Hassan Rouhani called the sanctions “outrageous and idiotic”.

He added that White House is ‘mentally retarded.’

In a speech broadcast live on state television on Tuesday, Rouhani said sanctions against Khamenei would fail because he had no assets abroad. Rouhani described the latest round of sanctions as a sign of US desperation.
