President Donald Trump of the United States has denied claims made by Iran, on arresting 17 CIA spies and sentencing some to death.

Reacting to the report via Twitter, Trump described it as lies put out by a religious regime that is failing and with no idea of what to do.

“The Report of Iran capturing CIA spies is totally false. Zero truth. Just more lies and propaganda (like their shot down drone) put out by a Religious Regime that is Badly Failing and has no idea what to do. Their Economy is dead, and will get much worse. Iran is a total mess!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also debunked the claim in a television interview earlier on Monday, saying, “The Iranian regime has a long history of lying.”
