Twitter defends not blocking Iran leader's tweets after blocking Trump's | Fox Business

Khamenei has several tweets on his profile that call for the "elimination" of Israel, or "Zionist regime." In a May 21 tweet, he wrote, "The only remedy until the removal of the Zionist regime is firm, armed resistance."
