“The day that madman [Saddam] was hanged was the day people celebrated the final victory … Trump’s fate won’t be much better than Saddam’s.”
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, referred to by the NY Times and other as a “moderate,” on Wednesday compared U.S. President Donald Trump to the slain Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, saying that he will meet the same fate as the tyrant who was hanged in 2006.
“The day that madman [Saddam] was hanged was the day people celebrated the final victory,” Rouhani told his cabinet in Tehran. “Trump’s fate won’t be much better than Saddam’s.”
The comments come after Iran-backed terrorists fired rockets at the U.S. embassy in Baghdad over the weekend. The attack killed one Iraqi civilian and damaged the embassy compound.
President Trump tweeted a photo of three Iran-made rockets recovered from the site that failed to launch.
“Our embassy in Baghdad got hit Sunday by several rockets,” Trump wrote, “Guess where they came from: IRAN.” He offered the Tehran regime a “friendly health advice” warning that “If one American is killed, I will hold Iran responsible. Think it over.”
British newspaper The Independent reported Iranian president’s deranged comments:
Iran’s president on Wednesday described Donald Trump as a “madman”, likened him to former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, and predicted the American president would suffer a fate similar to the late Baathist leader, who was hanged in a Baghdad prison 14 years ago.
“The day that madman was hanged was the day people celebrated the final victory,” President Hassan Rouhani said during a cabinet meeting. “Trump’s fate won’t be much better than Saddam’s.” (…)
“One madman in our region was Saddam, who imposed a war on our nation, and the other madman was Trump, who imposed another war on our people,” he said in comments that were broadcast on state television.
This is not the first time the top Iranian regime operative have made such outrageous remarks aimed at President Trump.
Last September, a top Iranian official threatened to “catch” President Trump and “put him on trial” for unspecified actions against Iran. “Ultimately, we will catch Trump and place him on trial, [Allah] willing,” said, Mohsen Rezaei, former head Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), the regime’s military wing and a U.S. designated terrorist organization.
The regime has also been devastated by the campaign of ‘maximum pressure’ pursued by President Trump, placing stiff sanctions on Tehran and eliminating high-profile Iranian terror operatives in the Middle East.
Earlier this year, Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei threatened the U.S. with ‘jihad’ after an American drone strike killed Qassem Soleimani, head of Iran’s Al Quds Force, regime’s foreign terrorist arm. The regime has issued several terror threats against the U.S. and allied countries ever since.
Iranian regime received billions of dollar as part of the Obama administration-backed nuclear deal. Tehran has since squandered billions in financing Islamic terrorists in Syria, Lebanon, and elsewhere in the Middle East. Iran and its proxy terrorist groups have welcomed the prospect of Joe Biden taking over the White House and reviving the Obama-era deal.
