During the 40th anniversary of the 1979 revolution ceremony Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani has insisted "enemy" plots against the country will fail and called President Donald Trump an "idiot", The Guardian reports. 

Hundreds of thousands of Iranians, including soldiers, students, clerics and chador-clad women holding small children, marched through the capital to mark the anniversary.

State television showed crowds carrying Iranian flags in cold rainy weather, shouting "Death to Israel, Death to America" - trademark chants of the revolution - as well as burning US flags and carrying portraits of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the Shia cleric who toppled the Shah in an Islamic uprising that still haunts the west.

"The presence of people today on the streets all over Islamic Iran … means that the enemy will never reach its evil objectives," a defiant President Hassan Rouhani told those thronging Tehran’s Azadi (Freedom) Square, decrying a "conspiracy" involving Washington.

In a tweet written on the anniversary that he also sent out in Farsi, Trump said the revolution had been a complete failure.

"40 years of corruption. 40 years of repression. 40 years of terror. The regime in Iran has produced only 40 Years of Failure. The long-suffering Iranian people deserve a much brighter future," he posted in both English and Farsi.
