Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has lashed out at President Donald Trump, claiming his White House has been "afflicted with mental retardation."

Rouhani's comments come in response to the recent sanctions by the United States against the rogue nation.

The Iranian president made the remarks during a live television address following the Trump administration’s launching of sanctions against Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and a number of other leaders in the Islamic Republic, according to the AP.

Rouhani described the move by Trump as a push toward the "certain failure" of the White House.

According to Breitbart, Rouhani said the decision meant the “certain failure” of the White House’s efforts.

He also criticized U.S. officials for wanting to sanction Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

A baffled Rouhani said: “You sanction the foreign minister simultaneously with a request for talks? 

"The White House is afflicted by mental retardation and does not know what to do.”

There was no immediate reaction from Washington early on Tuesday to the personal attack from Iran.

This is not the first time the Iran leadership has launched a smear on Donald Trump.

In 2017, Ali Khamenei called Trump “foul-mouthed,” accusing him of uttering “nonsense,” and “suffering from retardation.”

“The President of the United States displays nonsense; however, this should not lead us to ignore the mischief of the U.S. regime,” Khamenei told a group of students, before taking to Twitter to expand his range of insults further.

The latest round of anti-Trump abuse comes after the president signed an executive order imposing economic sanctions on Monday, taking a dramatic and unprecedented step to increase pressure on Iran after Tehran’s downing of an American drone last week.

“We do not seek conflict with Iran or any other country,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office at the signing ceremony.

“I can only tell you we cannot ever let Iran have a nuclear weapon.”
