‘What a spectacle?’ Iran’s Supreme Leader Satirizes American Democracy
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has ridiculed accusations and bitterness after the US presidential election, saying the election has exposed the reality of US democracy.
According to the foreign news agency ‘AFP’, more than 24 hours after the last polling station in the US state of Alaska was closed, the decision of the White House contest has not been made yet.
US President Donald Trump has also embarrassed his Republican Party leaders by accusing them of electoral fraud, while his Democratic rival Joe Biden‘s campaign team has accused Donald Trump of denying millions of postal voters their electoral rights. ۔
In a tweet on the social networking site, Ayatollah Khamenei said, “What a spectacle! One says this is the most fraudulent election in US history. Who says that? The president who is currently in office. His rival says Trump intends to rig the election! This is how #USElections & US democracy are.”

Washington’s Western allies have also expressed concern over the deepening divisions in the US state of Donald Trump’s surprise election victory four years ago, and Germany has warned of an “extremely dangerous situation” after the election.
Despite US allegations that Tehran tried to influence voters on social media on election day, Iran’s leadership has publicly insisted that it does not support any candidate.
Donald Trump has campaigned for greater pressure on Iran, with the United States withdrawing from the nuclear deal with world powers and re-imposing unilateral sanctions.
On the other hand, Joe Biden has indicated that he is ready to be a part of this historic agreement again.
On Tuesday, however, Iran’s supreme leader stressed that the election results would not affect Iran’s policy.
