Thousands of Iranians took to the streets of Tehran after Friday prayers to protest against the US designation of Iran's Revolutionary Guard as a 'terrorist organisation.'
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the decision on Monday. It is the first time Washington has formally labelled another country's military in such a way.
Protesters in Tehran held signs saying 'Mr Trump go to Hell... Еще' and chanted 'Down with Israel, Down with Saudi Arabia' during the march.
Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Yazdi, the Deputy Commander of the Revolutionary Guard, said Trump should «get back to business because he is a good businessman and he can suck American people's blood and steal their money. He is not good at being a politician and his counselors are not good enough and they are misleading him.»
The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which was created after the 1979 Islamic Revolution, is Iran's most powerful security organisation and has wide ranging influence over the country's political system, economy and armed forces.
Tehran has responded to Washington's decision by designating the US military as a terrorist organisation, according to Iranian state TV.
