The U.S. presidential election and democracy have been ridiculed by Iran’s supreme leader, citing President Trump’s non-evident assertion of voter fraud.
Recall that by flatly claiming fraud, President Trump created disquiet among even representatives of his own Republican Party, while the campaign team of his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, accused the incumbent of attempting to deny the voting rights of tens of thousands of postal voters.
In a tweet posted on Wednesday, the Iranian Supreme Leader, who described the election as a “spectacle” that will be “interesting to watch,” added that it has revealed the reality of US democracy.
He also tweeted;
“What a spectacle!
“One says this is the most fraudulent election in US history. Who says that? The president who is currently in office.
“His rival says Trump intends to rig the election! This is how #USElections & US democracy are.”
His remarks came during the anniversary of the overthrow of the U.S. on November 4, 1979. In Tehran, the Embassy. It was the start of the 444-day hostage crisis that, almost 40 years later, still affects relations between the two countries.
