TEHRAN (IQNA) – Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf cited verses from Surah An-Naziat of the Holy Quran in reaction to US President Donald Trump’s defeat in the 2020 US election.


In a post on his Twitter account with the hashtag #USDecline, he likened Trump to pharaoh, quoting verses 21-26 of the 79th Surah of the Quran:  

“But he rejected (the truth) and disobeyed. Then he went back hastily. Then he gathered (men) and called out. Then he said: I am your lord, the most high. So Allah seized him with the punishment of the hereafter and the former life. Most surely there is in this a lesson to him who fears.”

Ghalibaf also posted footage of a speech by Secretary General of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah in which Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah predicts Trump’s defeat.

On Saturday and after four days of uncertainty, Joe Biden’s victory over Donald Trump in the US presidential elections was announced, making him the 46th American president.

The Democrat eventually surpassed the 270 electoral votes he needed to oust Trump, who had expressed confidence he would secure a second term.
