Iran’s supreme leader claims Donald Trump lied more than 10 times as he announced the US is pulling out of the nuclear deal.

In the most severe breakdown of relations between the two countries since they signed the Obama-era accord in 2015, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei threw down the gauntlet to Trump.

He didn’t specifically say what the president had allegedly lied about, but challenged him directly, saying: ‘You cannot do a damn thing!’

Khamenei, who has final say on all state matters in the Islamic republic, warned that Trump’s remarks threatened Iran’s people and its theocratic government.

It comes after Iranian politicians set a US flag ablaze in parliament and shouted ‘Death to America’ after Trump’s withdrawal from the nuclear deal.

WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 08: A television displays U.S. President Donald Trump's remarks as he announces his decision to withdraw the United States from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal in the Diplomatic Room at the White House May 8, 2018 in Washington, DC. After two and a half years of negotiations, Iran agreed in 2015 to end its nuclear program in exchange for Western countries, including the United States, lifting decades of economic sanctions. Since then international inspectors have not found any violations of the terms by Iran. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)

As well as the paper flag, they also burned a piece of paper representing the deal, in a display said to reflect public anger over Trump’s decision.

Trump immediately imposed sanctions on Iran, while Iran president Hassan Rouhani declared the country will enrich uranium ‘more than before’ if negotiations fail in response to the US withdrawing.

Speaking after Donald Trump’s announcement, President Rouhani said there was a ‘short time’ to negotiate with the countries who remain committed to a multinational nuclear deal.

He said: ‘If we achieve the deal’s goals in cooperation with other members of the deal, it will remain in place… By exiting the deal, America has officially undermined its commitment to an international treaty.

‘I have ordered Iran’s atomic organisation that whenever it is needed, we will start enriching uranium more than before.’

He said Iran would start this ‘in the next weeks’.
