Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei argued that "the IRGC leads the fight in operational fields, confronting the enemies at our borders; and even thousands of kilometres away from the frontiers... as well as in political confrontations with enemies". He added that "U.S. officials wishfully plot against the IRGC... such ferocities won't get them anywhere. Their vice and deceit will return [to] boomerang on them, leading the enemies of the Islamic Republic such as Trump and those around him at the U.S. ruling apparatus to go down the drain".
