US Displaying Age-Old Enmity US Displaying Age-Old Enmity

Tehran once again slammed Washington’s recent belligerent rhetoric and measures against Iran, saying the world is currently witnessing the age-old enmity of the United States toward the Islamic Republic under the administration of President Donald Trump.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi made the statement on Thursday in response to the latest anti-Iran claims by White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Press TV reported.

The Iranian official said the news coming out every day on Trump’s decisions, false remarks by some new US officials, in addition to widespread anti-Trump protests both at home and abroad “clearly show a change of president in the US.”

After taking office, the new US president ordered sweeping travel bans against a number of Muslim-majority countries, including Iran. The order was followed by a widespread domestic and international backlash.

Qasemi said, “There may have been changes inside the US, but what seems to have remained unchanged is the US hostility toward Iran.”

On Tuesday, Spicer claimed that “Iran is kidding itself if they don’t think there’s a new president in town.”
