Nassir Hosseini, Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei's representative in the Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad Provinces, said in a Friday, December 18, 2020 sermon in the city of Yasuj that President Trump lost the 2020 elections because he had applied too much pressure on the Iranian people. He added that this should serve as a lesson to future American administrations. The sermon aired on Dena TV (Iran).
Nassir Hosseini: "So far, no American administration has decreased America's hostility and treachery [towards Iran]. We hope that [their] administrations come to their senses. Poor Trump tried so hard that his back broke. Why did Trump's administration lose the elections, or at least so it seems? Because it applied maximum pressure on the Iranian people.
"Let this be a lesson to the new American administration. If it wants to use force and act like a bully, it will face the same fate as Trump."
