The leader of the Lebanese resistance Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah emphasized that Hezbollah, which has always won all wars and challenges, is not afraid of the “idiot” U.S. President Donald Trump, according to Al-Manar.
Nasrallah, in a speech Sunday, thanked Trump for tearing off the hypocritical mask of previous administrations and revealing the true nature of Washington and its “racism” against the oppressed peoples of the world.
“Trump has not come up with anything new. He just revealed the real face of the racist, oppressive and ugly U.S. administration,” Nasrallah said, referring to Trump. “We have to thank him for this.”
He went on to say that Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama was just the same except for the fact that he sugarcoated with nice words and speeches while carrying out drone strikes in several Muslim-majority countries and supporting oppressive regimes like Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.
"We are very optimistic that when an idiot settles in the White House and boasts about his idiocy, this is the beginning of relief for the oppressed around the world,” he said dismissing that his movement would be fearful of the new aggressive U.S. administration.
Hezbollah was formed in 1985 as a Shiite resistance group born out of repression against the Islamic sect and defines itself through its fight and struggle against the 1982 Israeli occupation of southern Lebanon which ended in 2000.
The group maintains close ties with the Iranian government and has remained a close ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad. A few years ago the group joined Syrian Army forces in their fight against extremist rebel groups affiliated with al-Qaida and the Islamic State group.
Nasrallah emphasized that the party supported the cease-fire agreement in Syria, denying media reports accusing Hezbollah of opposing the truce.
Trump will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu whose government lost a war with Hezbollah in 2006 and sees the group and Iran as a bigger threat in the region that the Islamic State group. He is expected to lobby the U.S. president to cancel the Iran deal and approve new sanctions.
Trump has already expressed anti-Iran sentiment and hinted to a possible rollback of the Iran nuclear deal which could see Tehran facing new economic and military-related sanctions, which could hurt the interests of its ally Hezbollah.
Figures within the Trump administration have in fact called for war against Iran and were very critical of the Iran deal between Tehran and six world powers which was pushed by Obama.
