President Hassan Rouhani has expressed excitement over the departure of America’s President Donald Trump set to make way for President-elect Joe Biden.

Speaking at a televised cabinet meeting Wednesday, Rouhani called on Joe Biden to return to the 2015 nuclear deal and lift sanctions imposed on Tehran by Donald Trump’s administration.

“If Washington returns to Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal, we will also fully respect our commitments under the pact,” he said, adding in reference to Trump that “a tyrant’s era came to an end and today is the final day of his ominous reign.”

During Trump’s reign, Iran and the US almost went to war after the US assassinated Iranian general Qasem Soleimani last January.

With Biden who was a member of the Obama administration which negotiated the original deal entering office Thursday, hopes are high for rapprochement.

At the televised meeting, Rouhani castigated Trump, saying his four years in office “bore no fruit other than injustice and corruption causing problems for his own people and the world.”


  1. ICHEOKU says this shows how weak Joe Biden is being perceived around the world. All the tin can despots quivering in their underpants this past four years will start mouthing off again now that their arch nemesis has been rigged out of power. A case of when the cat is away the mouse hosts parade. It is sad and the world will be so uneventful without President Trump. Even Twitter has gone technically silent. It is sad. He will be missed.

    • First of all, I won’t miss him. ” It is sad and the world will be so uneventful without President Trump”, do you really believe what is coming out from your mouth? During his tenure, America lost respect around the world. Twitter is a private company and they have their own rules. He violated the rules and they kicked him off their platform.
