The Twitter account of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was suspended on Friday after he vowed to seek revenge on former President Donald Trump.
Khamenei tweeted an image of a golfer that resembles Trump with an ominous shadow of a drone or aircraft overhead. The post also included text swearing “revenge” on anyone who ordered the killing of General Qasem Soleimani.
“Those who ordered the murder of General Soleimani as well as those who carried this out should be punished. This revenge will certainly happen at the right time,” Khamenei’s statement read, according to translation by Reuters.
Animosity between the United States and Iran almost reached the point of war after the Trump’s killing of Soleimani at the beginning of last year. Tensions between the two countries also grew in 2018, when Trump exited the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers.
Although the tweet did not name Trump directly, the golfer doppelgänger and the implication of the text, considering Trump did order the killing of Soleimani, were enough to get the leader kicked off of Twitter– at least for now:
