After President Donald Trump said Iran does "bad, bad things," seemingly linking to the deadly attack on a Pittsburgh synagogue last year by an American anti-Semite, Iran's foreign minister pushed back Wednesday.

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted Wednesday that "Iranians — including our Jewish compatriots — are commemorating 40 yrs of progress despite US pressure, just as @realDonaldTrump again makes accusations against us."

In his State of the Union address, Trump said Iran "chants death to America and threatens genocide against the Jewish people. We must never ignore the vile poison of anti-Semitism or those who spread its venomous creed."

He then spoke about the synagogue shooting, in which 11 people were killed, without directly implicating Iran.
