President Hassan Rouhani celebrated media claims of Biden’s victory as “an opportunity for the next US government to make up for past mistakes.” “The next American administration will surrender to the Iranian nation,” the Iranian leader boasted after the election.
The terrorist state’s vice president hailed the end of President Trump’s “warmongering”.
The Islamic terrorist state has every reason to want Biden in the White House. The full scope of Iran’s interference in our presidential election still remains unknown, but one dirty trick involved sending threatening emails to Florida and Arizona voters from “Trump supporters”. A video showed Iranian hackers supposedly sending in illegitimate absentee ballots using stolen voter data, and the Director of National Intelligence warned that Iran had accessed voter data.
“Iran has no interest in interfering in the U.S. election and no preference for the outcome,” Iran’s spokesman at the UN claimed.
But Iran’s preference for Biden is an even worse kept secret than its nuclear program. The Iran Lobby had been investing in Biden before anyone outside D.C. or Delaware knew him.
Forty years ago during the Iran Hostage Crisis, Biden had been against rescuing the American hostages, putting him even further on the appeasement side than the Carter administration.
After September 11, Biden even suggested, “this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran.”
In a speech to the American Iranian Council that same year, Biden argued that, “We cannot simply dismiss Iran’s security concerns” and urged that American gestures to the Islamic terror state should “not rest on the principle of reciprocity” because Iran wouldn’t respond to them.
He also urged that Iran be allowed to join the World Trade Organization, receive refugee aid, and maintain relations through the AIC and George Soros’ Open Society Institute.
