The leader of Lebanon’s Shiite militant group and political party Hezbollah said having an "idiot" in the White House makes the group optimistic, a reference to President Trump.
"We are very optimistic that when an idiot settles in the White House and boasts about his idiocy, this is the beginning of relief for the oppressed around the world,” Hezbollah's Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah said in a speech Sunday, the Associated Press reports.
The United States has designated Hezbollah as a foreign terrorist organization.
"The Trump administration condemns such actions by Iran that undermine security, prosperity, and stability throughout and beyond the Middle East and place American lives at risk," Flynn said during a White House press briefing.
“As of today, we are officially putting Iran on notice."
