It's not every day the leader of a country takes to Twitter to issue a detailed report on national inflation.

Rouhani issued a report Tuesday on his first 100 days in office, peppering his English-language tweets with hashtags like #Prudence and #Hope—and sounding a lot like an American politician on the campaign trail.

The president even made a long-term inflation forecast.
