TEHRAN (Dispatches) – President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday President Donald Trump is wrapping up his tenure with humiliation and scandal, while the Iranian nation is prevailing over the U.S. maximum pressure and its economic terrorism.
Rouhani told a cabinet meeting that Trump’s final days in office mark an end to bullying, racism and lawlessness in the world.
"The disgraceful and scandalous end of the U.S. administration … indicates that bullying, racism, and breaking the law will not come to a good end,” he said.
The president praised the Iranian people for their patience and resistance against Trump whom he called the "big terrorist of history”, saying the U.S. administration finalizes a rule in humiliation.
The president pointed to the economic indicators which show Iran’s economy is recovering. "All of these facts indicate that the U.S. policy of maximum pressure and economic terrorism have ended in utter failure.”
"While the Iranian people feel victorious against this pressure and terrorism, the American people witness great failure in their social and political lives and a huge rift inside the U.S.”
The masterminds of the maximum pressure policy on Iran are being ousted and their political life is transpiring forever, Rouhani said.
"A president who lacked political understanding took the helm of a country, and was accompanied by a stupid foreign minister and an ignorant and radical national security advisor. He handled everything with his gambling and business-oriented mind, and we finally saw how his term ended,” Rouhani said.
"No one could believe this lawbreaker would order riot against his own nation, his own security, and the country’s legislature, and provoke people against the very democracy they believe in,” he added.
Five people were killed last Wednesday after Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol building to protest the ceremonial counting of the electoral votes that would confirm President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory.
