On Monday, Trump in yet another controversial tweet claimed that despite Iran never winning a war, the Islamic Republic “never lost a negotiation”.
It comes after the American president had admitted that "it is getting harder for me to make a deal with Iran", as he seemed to refer to the new agreement to replace the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Just remember, the Iranians never won a war, but never lost a negotiation!

Posting photos of the nationaly-mourned hero, Mohsen Hojaji, who was martyred by the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (known as ISIL/ISIS or Daesh) in Syria in 2017, alongside a crying American soldier, an activists stated that the pictures show all about Iran and the United States.

Trump’s tweet has since sparked hundreds of comments and tweets in protest and in despise for the US president, mocking Donald Trump's fictitious narrative.
Iran won almost all the wars the US started in ME but couldn't finish!

Trump is the worst human being to ever take any public office.

Uh, the Persians came pretty close to conquering the known world at one time. Try picking up a book once in a while.

Just remember, the American always started wars, failed in most, killed millions of people, broke the deals, betrayed, plotted, lied and destroyed. They've never had mercy even on their own people. We Iranians have never started a war, but have always defended our country.

Remember the US lost the war in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria and lost the negotiations with Iran, Iraq, Taliban and Syria. pic.twitter.com/HMY2tQObO3

Just remember, you can't even win at golf so your opponents have too let you cheat.

Iran did pretty well against the Iraqis. The reason they didn't win a lot of wars is because unlike the US, they don't have a long history of invading other countries.
Tell us about the negotiations you have won since being president.
I can't think of a single one.

When the Iranian Empire was victorious in the wars, there was no country named America!

It's not surprising that you never heard of the Persian Empire.

If you are begging for negotiation, I recommend you, don't waist your time, don't get mad. Your behaviour has caused lots of hate on Iranian. You have never understood Iranian culture and their power.

Alluding to the revelations made by recently-resigned Britain's Ambassador to the US Kim Darroch - who had sent a diplomatic cable to Downing Street saying Trump had abandoned the Iran's Nuclear Deal for "personality reasons" because it had been agreed by his predecessor Barack Obama - another activist condemned the American leader's desicion to quite the 2015 landmark agreement, and said Trump's worthless actions risk the lives of millions.
Just remember...a twatwaffle like YOU has never even SEEN a war, with your 5 bone spur deferments.
That said, you scuttled the Iran deal out of spite for Obama, jeopardizing the safety of millions for your ego.
Now you wanna rattle the saber b/c distraction? Screw you.

Tensions mounted between Tehran and Washington last May, when Trump pulled the United States out of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, and re-imposed harsh sanctions against the Islamic Republic in defiance of global criticism. The American leader and his hawkish advisers National Security Advisor John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have since been stepping up pressure against Iranians.
The tensions saw a sharp rise on the first anniversary of Washington’s exit from the deal as the US moved to ratchet up pressure on Iran by tightening its oil sanctions and sending military reinforcements, including an aircraft carrier strike group, a squadron of B-52 bombers, and a battery of Patriot missiles, to the Persian Gulf region. The Pentagon has also announced it was sending 1,000 additional US forces and more military resources to the Middle East.
Tensions between Washington and Tehran hit a new high in June after the US sent a number of military aircarft to the Iranian skies under a tense climate of escalating threats, forcing the IRGC Aerospace Force to shoot down one of the intruding American aircraft.
Iran has stressed that it will not be the initiator of any war, but reserves the right to self defense and will give a crushing response to any act of aggression by the United States.
