He said that what America witnessed on Wednesday was “a small result” of the crimes committed by the Trump administration in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen.
It’s worth clarifying here that the conflicts in these regions began long before Trump took office.
He also claimed that what happened in the U.S was the same as what the United States has been doing in Lebanon for a year and a half.
It is clear that he is implying the uprising of the Lebanese people against corruption in the government has led the country to multiple crises, a nationwide movement that started on October 17th, 2019, about a year and a half.
Nasrallah had indeed accused “the embassies” last year of being behind the Lebanese revolution. He now claimed that Trump is applying the same to the American system.
“[Trump’s] criminal policies have been revealed to his own people, even Americans felt that he can kill them.” He added that the events serve as proof that American democracy was a lie.
A controversial statement since, in Lebanon where democracy is the main pillar of its constitution, the Lebanese people haven’t had for years the luxury of essential amenities like the American people.
