Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says what’s happening in the United States today reveals the real nature of the American government.
In a Wednesday televised address, the Leader referred to the chaotic situation in America following the murder of George Floyd by the US police, saying, “A police officer putting his knee on a black man’s neck and pushing it to death shows the nature of the American government.”
“What is being witnessed in US cities today is a result of realities that had always been kept concealed. However, today these have been revealed leading to the disgrace of the US government,” he added.
“The crime committed against this black man is the same thing the US government has been doing against all the world. They have done the same in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Vietnam, and many other countries of the world. This is the US government’s nature and character that is being exposed today.”
“The people’s slogan of #ICantBreathe can be heard in the massive protests throughout the US. It also represents the heartfelt words of all nations against which the US has committed many atrocities,” the Leader went on to say.
“The US government has been disgraced due to its behaviour. The corona outbreak started in the US later than in other countries, they benefitted from other nations’ experience, and they could have prepared, but they failed to manage Corona properly due to the corruption of their government,” he added.
