The chief of staff of Iran’s armed forces is criticizing Donald Trump for his past harsh words about confronting Iranian boats in the Persian Gulf.
The semi-official Fars news agency quoted General Mohammad Hossein Bagheri last Friday as saying “The person who has recently achieved power, has talked off the top of his head! Threatening Iran in the Persian Gulf is just a joke.”
In September, Trump said Iranian ships trying to provoke the US “will be shot out of the water.”
