US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday the government in Iran has become a nightmare for the Iranian people, the Voice of America reported.
He added that United Sates is not afraid to attack the Iranian regime at its highest level as he urged all US allies to join in financially suppressing the government.
Pompeo spoke to an audience at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library Sunday, filled with Iranian-Americans.
He said the Trump administration will not stay silent against what he calls the numerous crimes and abuses of the Iranian government.
He said the Iranian economy is “going great,” but only for the elite, accusing the ayatollahs and senior leaders of lining their pockets to the tune of billions of dollars while a third of Iranians live in poverty.
