The supreme leader was visiting the 2018 Tehran International Book Fair, according to his site. "Fire and Fury" created a media firestorm around the Trump administration when it was published earlier this year.

Khamenei earlier this week lashed out at Trump for announcing the United States would withdraw from a 2015 agreement over Iran's nuclear program.

"You cannot do a damn thing!" Khamenei told Trump, in comments he made before school teachers, according to the Associated Press.

"The body of this man, Trump, will turn to ashes and become the food of the worms and ants, while the Islamic Republic continues to stand," Khamenei said, referring to Iran, the AP reported.
