In a December 16, 2020 English-language interview on an episode of Going Underground on Russia Today TV, Zeinab Soleimani, the daughter of IRGC General Qasem Soleimani, said that Al-Qaeda and ISIS were made by the United States and that her father had been the only person standing before them. She said that her father had been a savior who had foiled every American plan in the region, and that U.S. President Donald Trump is the monster, not her father. In addition, Zeinab said that there is no difference between President Trump and President-Elect Joe Biden, since they follow the same policies and are the "same person." She also accused Biden of agreeing with Obama when he created ISIS.

Zeinab Soleimani: "Al-Qaeda, ISIS, they are a group of terrorists that America made them, and we have many proofs for that. My father was the only person was standing in front of such terrorist groups.


"They made it to start a war in the Middle East, and they use it to start hurting people and taking their houses, their jobs, their money, their countries. Of course they are not happy for my father standing in front of them and destroying them everywhere."


Interviewer: "Why would Donald Trump say that your father was a monster?"

Zeinab Soleimani: "Well, first, he is the monster, not my father. Second, I would say my father did his job so well, and make them so angry. You are seeing every plan they are making in the Middle East is destroyed.


"My mother is a savior, he saved people, not just his own country. He did this for all countries. He did this for people.


"After killing my father, America thought that everything would be stopped because they killed General Soleimani, the power of the Middle East. But they are so wrong.


"General Soleimani has a military from people that they will take revenge from Trump, and they are so wrong they are thinking that this will be the end of General Soleimani. This is the beginning, and there are thousands of people like General Soleimani who are ready to fight, like him, stronger, more powerful.


"There is no difference between Biden and Trump. They are the same guy, and they are following the same policy.


"Biden was agree with Obama when they made ISIS. What's the difference between Trump and Biden? What will change?"
