Iran says Trump's 'absurd tweets' have incited disruption
Iranian ambassador says online comments have spurred 'disruptive acts'
Iran says the U.S. "has crossed every limit" in international relations by expressing support for the anti-government protests roiling the Islamic Republic.
Iran's ambassador to the United Nations complained in a letter Wednesday to the Security Council president.
Ambassador Gholamali Khoshroo says U.S. President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have issued "numerous absurd tweets" that "incited Iranians to engage in disruptive acts."
The U.S. hasn't immediately responded to the letter accusing it of intervening "in a grotesque way in Iran's internal affairs."
The people of Iran are finally acting against the brutal and corrupt Iranian regime. All of the money that President Obama so foolishly gave them went into terrorism and into their “pockets.” The people have little food, big inflation and no human rights. The U.S. is watching!—@realDonaldTrump
Trump has unleashed a series of tweets backing the protesters and referring to Iran as corrupt and failing.
At least 21 people have been killed and hundreds arrested amid protests fueled by economic grievances. Meanwhile, tens of thousands of people took part in pro-government counter-demonstrations Wednesday.
