President of Iran, Hassan Rouhani in an attack on US President Donald Trump described him as “madman” and said that he would suffer similar fate as that of Saddam Hussein. Rouhani reportedly made these comments in a cabinet meeting on Wednesday.
Saddam Hussein was an Iraqi politician and the fifth president of Iraq, who was hanged to death in 2006.
“The fate of US President Donald Trump will not be better than Saddam Hussein,” Rouhani said in the meeting, according to Fars News Agency.
“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,” Rouhani said.
“Saddam imposed military war, and Trump imposed economic war on us,” he continued.
He said that Iran was united during the war and defeated Saddam.
“We also witnessed the day when that madman was executed,” he said.
