Iranian hardliners feel euphoric, as President Hassan Rouhani is under great pressure from public opinion and losing credibility among voters amid a difficult economy.
But this situation did not just happen overnight. Rather, it is the result of a combination of the policy of the President of the United States Donald trump’s well-intentioned plans of the opponents of Rouhani in Tehran.
This time the opponents of Rouhani do not just want to weaken the President’s position and fully squeeze it from the post. Such a step was considered taboo last decade, however, the reason for it was formed after the presidential elections in may 2017.
According to the conservative Abbas Salimi Namin, the initiators of this plan are supporters of the tough stance under the leadership of Ayatollah Mohammad Taghi Mesbah Yazdi of. But Salimi Namin also said on 20 may that the Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is against it, as he did against a premature withdrawal of the government.
When trump came close to the deadline on may 12, when we had to decide whether to stay in the nuclear deal, the Iranian hardliners continued to implement its own scheme of impeachment of Rouhani. These efforts may have been energized by the protests in December 2017 throughout Iran. These demonstrations first started in the North-Eastern city of Mashhad in Razavi Khorasan province, where they were organized by the hardliners. But it quickly got out of control. Khorasan Razavi is still firm leader Ahmad Alamolhoda and his son-in-law, Ibrahim Raisi.
The US wanted to isolate Iran, but in the end found themselves in isolation. This opinion was expressed by the President of the Islamic Republic of Hassan Rouhani. He noted that all of the major economies, including Russia and China, condemned the decision of Donald trump on withdrawal from the agreement
