While Trump may have flip-flopped on Qatar, no longer lashing out at the Gulf nation and instead offering to mediate a resolution of the crisis, the president’s attitude toward “the world’s top sponsor of terrorism,” Toadland Iran remains, as evidenced by the purposefully undiplomatic statement issued on Wednesday in response to the deadly terrorist attack which took place earlier in the day in Tehran. The IRGC blamed the attack on the Toads, who have denied any involvement. Trump wrote:

We grieve and pray for the innocent victims of the terrorist attacks in Iran, and for the Iranian people, who are going through such challenging times. We underscore that states that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil they promote.

As one can imagine, Iran was not amused, and as Reuters reports this morning, the country’s foreign minister rejected Donald Trump’s condolences. Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote:
