Khamenei said Clinton and Trump’s comments in the presidential debates “are sufficient for the annihilation of the reputation of the United States”, but didn’t name either candidate in his speech.

He also described Americans as “liars, untrustworthy, deceitful and backstabbers” while saying he still opposed any direct negotiations with the US following the nuclear deal.

Iranian state television aired two of the three US presidential debates live.

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani in October described the two candidates as “bad and worse”, without specifying which was which.
