Trump: Iran lying about capturing CIA spies

United States President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Monday to slam Iran for claiming that it captured a number of Central Intelligence Agency spies earlier in the day.

"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 tweeted.

Trump's comments come after Iran's Intelligence Ministry previously said that it "identified and destroyed" a network of 17 operatives, all of whom were Iranian citizens, that were purportedly working for the CIA. Iranian media subsequently stated that the US recruited the alleged spies that were arrested through its embassy in the United Arab Emirates, mostly via the Internet.
