Being unaware of Iranian nation’s capabilities was one of the reasons for Trump’s defeat in US election/ I advise sanctioners of Iran to leave this failed approach to history
The President said that the resistance of the Iranian people against the pressure of sanctions and Trump's full-scale economic war against Iran showed great realities to the world and all the ill-wishers of Iran, adding, "Trump did not recognize the potentials and capabilities of the Islamic Republic of Iran at all and acted based on his illusions, and the failure of the White House against Iran after two and a half years of fully-fledged economic war, along with the failure of his international policies, is one of the reasons for Trump's defeat in the recent elections".
Dr Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday at a meeting of the cabinet's economic coordination board, "I recommend to all those who think that they are seeking the defeat of Iran through measures such as sanctions, to take leave wrong and failed approach to the history forever".
Referring to Iran's economic authority and power as two important and decisive facts, Dr Rouhani said, "Although the economic war caused a lot of damage, including to people's livelihoods, but today the sanctioners and warmongers that predicted the collapse of Iran's economy in a short time are leaving the White House while the Iranian nation stood proud and victorious in an unequal economic war more powerfully than ever before".
The President further referred to the features of the budget bill for the year 1400 and said, "The basis for compiling and drafting the budget bill for next year has been the economic capacity of the country and the realities of the international stage, and with a detailed analysis of domestic data and assets".
"Contrary to the interpretation and analysis of those who believe the budget is based on international events and US election results, we must emphasise that the 1400 budget has been written precisely by relying on Iran's economic potential," he said.
The President stated, "The government's efforts and plans during this period have been aimed at repairing the damage of the economic war to some extent and the problems caused by the effects of the outbreak of COVID-19 for the poor and low-income classes of society".
