Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei blasted the current leaders of the United States as "first-class idiots", warning that their defeat will be "unprecedented".
Ayatollah Khamenei further described Iran's regional status as "the peak of a strategic position in the region", adding that the cause of the United States anger after the victory of the Islamic Revolution was that they had lost Iran as the most important country in the region with a rich land full of natural resources.
"A while ago, a US politician had said, among a gathering of terrorists and thugs, that he hopes to celebrate this Christmas in Tehran", Khamenei said, according to his Twitter feed. "Of course, I don't agree with that, but they are first-class idiots", he said in speech in Tehran, quoted on his official Twitter feed.
The remarks came as tensions between Iran and the US have escalated since US President Donald Trump walked away from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers in May and re-imposed sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
The supreme leader did not name the official.

In 2017, Khamenei dismissed remarks by Trump calling Iran a "terrorist" nation as "idiotic". Pompeo stated, "America's economic sanctions against the Iranian regime are the strongest in history and will keep getting tougher".
"The body of this man, Trump, will turn to ashes and become the food of the worms and ants, while the Islamic Republic continues to stand", Khamenei said at the time.
