Iranian government spokesman Ali Rabiei in a note on Saturday said that US President Donald Trump is more violent and brutal than the executed Iraqi President Saddam Hussein ever was against Iranians, Mehr News Agency reported.
Some political elites at various levels do not believe that today Trump is more violent than Saddam, however, he has this feature as he endangers the lives and health of Iranians, said.
In those days, Saddam's regime tore up the 1975 Algiers Agreement in front of the cameras, and today, with the same thinking, the Trump regime did the same with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Rabiei continued.
He highlighted that in those days, Saddam's regime threatened to destroy Iranian cities and villages, but today the Trump regime threatens to destroy Iranian cultural and civilizational centers.
In those days, Saddam bombarded Iranian people with rockets and bombs, but today, Trump has targeted the health, lives, and livelihood of Iranian people by economic sanctions, Ali Rabiei said.
