Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei pushed a conspiracy theory on Sunday, rejecting the possibility of any U.S. aid amid the coronavirus outbreak and suggesting the novel virus was a "poison" designed specifically to kill Iranians.
Already suffering under the weight of stringent sanctions imposed by the order of President Donald Trump, Iran has become one of the worst-hit countries in the world in the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. On Wednesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompoe announced that more sanctions would be added for Iran, despite reports that the Persian Gulf nation was already struggling to obtain much needed medical supplies to combat the outbreak.
As a result, Khamenei on Sunday refused the possibility of accepting U.S. assistance in fighting the virus, picking up on a conspiracy theory promoted by Chinese officials, the Associated Press reported. Some Chinese leaders have suggested that coronavirus was designed in a lab by the U.S. to target their country, which was the first in the world to be hit by the novel virus.
"I do not know how real this accusation is but when it exists, who in their right mind would trust you to bring them medication?" the Iranian leader said, referring to the conspiracy theory. "Possibly your medicine is a way to spread the virus more." He went on to suggest that coronavirus could have been "specifically built for Iran using the genetic data of Iranians which they have obtained through different means."
Khamenei reiterated the allegations and criticism in a series of Twitter posts as well.

Iranians are coo-coo as an old clock.
Why is this so important to title it in all CAPS? It’s Iran, why should we care?
By the way, we also sent those locusts, too.
RE: Why is this so important to title it in all CAPS?
The original title is in caps (go to the link). I don’t want to have to retype everything.
The wisdom of Islam. The death cult.
Personally I hope all of their leaders die a slow painful death.
These people of “The Regime” are mental. Consumed with lust for power.
WHY WHY WHY would we be giving Iran money?
One less group of morons we could help and those resources can be focused on others...
I am compelled to pray for anyone who is sane and lives in the hellhole known as Iran. Has to be a special kind of terror they are living through right now with leaders like this that you follow at the point of a gun.
But Mohammad said that disease cannot be spread person to person, it is Allah who decides who gets sick and who does not. Further the cure can be found in camel urine.
So they’re not blaming The Juze this time?
Use the aid here at home.
No.....hes right. 100%. Whatcha gonna do about it Khamenei??
GOOD! I don’t want us helping an enemy!
Would be funny as anything if Corona Beer was part of the cure.
