Ruhani reminds Trump about Saddam Hussein's fate
resident Hassan Rouhani said Saturday the United States became isolated after President Donald Trump withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal with the world powers, Iran Daily reports. He made the remarks at a military parade in Tehran marking the start of Iraq’s 1980-88 war against Iran.
The Iranian president said Trump will fail in his confrontation with Iran, just like Iraq's dictator Saddam Hussein.
"Saddam did not achieve its objective during the imposed war despite being supported by all global and regional powers," Rouhani said.
"We won back our territory from the aggressor. The UN and the Security Council designated Saddam as the person who began the war and all the countries that had helped Saddam later expressed regret and confessed to their crimes," he said.
