Trump says Iran's Khamenei 'should be very careful with his words'

WASHINGTON, Jan 17 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei should be very careful about what he says after Khamenei harshly criticized the United States in a Friday prayers sermon in Tehran.

"The so-called 'Supreme Leader' of Iran, who has not been so Supreme lately, had some nasty things to say about the United States and Europe," Trump said in a tweet.

"Their economy is crashing, and their people are suffering. He should be very careful with his words!" (Reporting by Makini Brice; Writing by Mohammad Zargham; Editing by Chris Reese)
