Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei took an apparent swipe at President Trump on Sunday, dismissing Trump as "this new guy" and saying the United States "will fail" to change Iran.

Khamenei tweeted the Islamic Republic of Iran has "faced animosities since day one."

"Don't mind what this new guy in US fusses about," he wrote. "For 40 years they haven't been able to do a damn thing."

The supreme leader said the United States has always wanted to change the government of Iran. "Well, was there a time you didn't want change?" Khamenei tweeted. "You've always wanted it but always failed & will fail."
