He said that Washington and its allies are after toppling the Islamic System in Iran, but this policy will result in the US’ being driven out of Iraq and the region.
Al-Dawoodi added that the sanctions during the coronavirus outbreak displayed the hideous true face of the US under Donald Trump and revealed its arrogance and crimes. The US has changed into a bandit and steals oil, medicine, and medical equipment.
He hoped that Trump will be voted out of the office in the 2020 elections.
