Hassan Rouhani, president of Iran seems to be extremely delighted at the victory of Joe Biden in the US presidential election. He is visibly very angry at Donald Trump for putting the mullah regime under pressure. On Wednesday, Rouhani said, his country was “very happy” over the forthcoming departure from the office of his US counterpart Donald Trump, who had put “maximum pressure” on Iran.
Rouhani also called Trump “the most lawless US president” and a “terrorist”. “We are not overjoyed about Biden’s arrival, but we are happy about Trump leaving,” Rouhani said in a televised speech to the cabinet.
“Some say you are overexcited by the advent of Biden. No, we are not, but we are very happy to see Trump leave,” the leader of the mullah republic said in televised comments at a cabinet meeting.
“Thank God, these are his final days,” Rouhani added, calling Trump a “tyrant”, “the most unruly, lawless president” and a “terrorist and murderer.”
President-elect Joe Biden has signaled a willingness to return to diplomacy with Iran after four tense years under the outgoing president. A number of political heavyweights in Iran are seeing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as their possible future allies and considering them to be “positive” towards Iran.
