An official close to the inner circle of Iran’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, hinted at the possibility of assassinating former US President Donald Trump after he left office.

This came as a comment on what was published by “Khamenei” website; He posted a picture of a golf player resembling “Trump”, apparently targeting him by a drone, attached to the photo as a threat to avenge the killing of Qassem Soleimani in a US drone attack last year.

The official, who asked not to be named, told “Reuters”: The purpose of the tweet “was to remind Trump that leaving the position does not mean that he will be safe and that Soleimani’s killing will be forgotten.”

He added, “And now, the American forces cannot protect him.”

The picture appeared for the first time in a tweet on a Persian-language account on “Twitter”, which included a link to Khamenei’s website; According to “Reuters”, and attached the picture to a comment: “Let the killers and those who ordered the killing know that revenge may come at any time.”

Twitter deleted this tweet on Friday, saying it was fake.

The comments were also placed above the photo, which showed the shadow of a drone hovering over the golfer, no one else in the photo, and Trump, who plays golf regularly, was not mentioned.

Emily Horne, a spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council in the Biden administration, commented on the photo by saying: “Such threats from Iran are unacceptable.”

She added, “We strongly condemn this provocative act, and we will continue to work with our friends and partners to counter Iran’s malign influence.” According to “Sputnik Arabi”.

Michael McCall, the top Republican on the US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee, urged the Biden administration to “respond quickly and forcefully to this provocative threat directed at a former president.”

“Reuters” quoted an analyst in Tehran – who asked not to be named – that “the threat can be an objective in itself.” Adding: “It seems that the aim of the tweet is to keep the specter of revenge alive, and this may in itself be a form of revenge.”
