The US President Donald Trump is “too little to force the Iranian people to obey his instructions,” the Iranian parliament’s speaker, Ali Larijani, said yesterday.

“Today the Iranian nation will show that Trump is too small to be able to bring Iran to its knees,” Larijani was quoted by official news agency Irna as saying during a parliament session.

“Like Saddam, the ending of the White House rulers will be remorse and defeat,” Larijani stressed, warning that Iranians fed up what he described as “the American hegemony.”

“Donald Trump intends to fight the Iranian people, in particular, Iranian children and women, but the people – with the help of Ayatollah Khamenei’s adept and clever leadership – will make Trump succumb just as did Saddam,” Larijani added.

“The capture of the American workers in the US’ den of spies in Tehran has deterred the US’ covetousness in the republic’s resources,” he noted.

The 4th of November, the Iranian official pointed out, is the day of the resistance of the Iranian people against global arrogance. “This day shows the Iranian people’s rejection to the American supremacy.”

“The US has been interfering in Iran’s internal affairs for more than 80 years, however, the Iranian nation has always defused conspiracies,” the Iranian official reiterated.

Pointing to the American military and non-military advisors along with their families and servants, who have been exempt from any crime or offence they commit, Larijani said that “the Islamic Revolution suddenly subverted the situation, ousting America and its servants,” he stressed.

The US government’s policies have led to the international community’s “ridicule,” Larijani added, warning that the “US allies are now one of its critics.”
