Hours after Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei mocked President Donald Trump as a "clown" in a rare public sermon, Trump fired back in a series of tweets, writing that Iran's leaders should "abandon terror and Make Iran Great again!" also tweeting the message out in Farsi.

The president spoke in a ballroom at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, at a Republican event that raised $10m for Trump's 2020 re-election campaign and for the Republican National Committee, according to AFP.

Soleimani, one of the most popular public figures in Iran, was killed on 3 January in a U.S. drone strike outside Baghdad airport. He said they need a government that will help them succeed.

The president recalled how USA military officials counted down the seconds leading up to the strike, which also killed a top Iraqi militant leader and several others, outside the Baghdad International airport.

"They're together sir", Trump recalled a military officials saying as they watched Soleimani meet Iraqi militia leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis at Baghdad International Airport. They're in the auto, they're in an armoured vehicle.

"I said, where is this guy?"

He did not elaborate whether it was a decision made by Iran's clerical rulers to threaten US President Donald Trump.

Trump remarked that he assassinated "two for the price of one" and noted that the strike, which dramatically escalated tensions between the U.S. and Iran, "shook up the world." . Sir, they have approximately one minute to live, sir. No emotion. 2 minutes and 11 seconds to live, sir. "'They're gone, sir. Cutting off'". 30 seconds. 10, nine, eight...' Then all of a sudden, boom.

"He said bad things about our country. he was saying things like 'We're going to attack your country".

In the 40-second clip about the military budget, Trump said, "It's been an incredible period of time and that's despite the witch hunt." before the audio cuts out.
