Iran’s IT minister fired back at President Trump’s allegation that a rocket exploded on a test site in northern Iran — by tweeting a selfie with Tehran’s prized satellite fully intact.

“Me and Nahid I right now, Good Morning Donald Trump!” Information and Communications Technology Minister Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi tweeted Saturday, along with a photo of himself and the apparatus.

The tweet comes after Trump on Friday posted a high-resolution aerial photo to Twitter showing an explosion at the Semnan Launch Site One in Iran, where the Nahid I was reportedly being built.

Trump claimed the “catastrophic accident” happened “during final launch preparations for the Safir SLV Launch.”

Iranian officials confirmed the Thursday explosion, but Jahromi denied the Safir satellite was destroyed.
