Iran, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority have all celebrated the departure of President Trump.
Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday hailed the departure of “tyrant” Donald Trump, saying
A “tyrant’s era came to an end and today is the final day of his ominous reign,” Rouhani said in televised remarks to his cabinet. “Someone for whom all of his four years bore no fruit other than injustice and corruption and causing problems for his own people and the world.”
During his presidency, Trump led a campaign of “maximum pressure” against Iran, pulling the US out of the disastrous nuclear deal with Tehran in 2018 and reimposing punishing sanctions.
“We are waiting to hear about the new US administration’s policy to resolve the conflict, especially its position on settlements that increased during the term of the Trump administration, as well as the Judaization of Jerusalem,” Shaath told the PA’s official newspaper, Al-Ayyam. “Trump was the worst US president regarding the Palestinian issue. He was a disaster for the Palestinians.”
