World A- A A+

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday that the outgoing U.S. president, Donald Trump, who withdrew the U.S. from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal in 2018, died while the deal is still alive.

Speaking at a cabinet session, Rouhani pointed to the Trump administration’s efforts to kill the nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Tehran Times reports. 

“Trump died while the JCPOA remained alive. He did everything in his power to destroy the JCPOA. Hardliners of Saudi Arabia and Israel also did the same thing. [But] today the JCPOA is still alive and even more vibrant than yesterday. He’s gone with his bad track record while Iran remained in place with its resistant track record,” Rouhani asserted.

Rouhani addressed the current situation in the U.S. and what Trump has done over the course of his presidency.


“Today, the dark chapter of Trump will be closed forever. This guy, whose ominous administration is reaching the end, has left a legacy of polarizing American society over the past four years. On the inauguration day, Washington D.C. has turned into a garrison town. All these troops came to the city to maintain its security. And this is the outcome of Trump’s naïve and authoritarian works, which polarized American society,” Rouhani stated, adding that Trump’s legacy is the U.S. isolation in the international arena.
