Iranian President Hassan Rouhani: Trump's Fate Will Be No Better Than That Of Saddam, Who Ended Up Hanging From The Gallows

#8558 | 01:15

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said in a December 23, 2020 cabinet meeting that was broadcasted on IRINN TV (Iran) that Saddam Hussein and President Trump are two crazy individuals who have imposed war upon the Iranian people. He predicted that President Trump's fate will be no better than Saddam's fate.


Hassan Rouhani: "The truth is that in our history, there were two crazy individuals who waged war against our nation. The first crazy person was Saddam [Hussein], who waged war against us. The second crazy person is Trump, who has waged a different war against us. [Saddam] waged a military war against us, and [Trump] an economic war. We won the military war. We stood hand-in-hand and side-by-side. We were pure of heart and united — one voice. By the grace of God, we won, and the day came when we saw that crazy man hanging from the gallows. On that day, the people saw their final victory [manifest]. And Trump's fate will be no better than Saddam's fate."
