US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo got into an altercation with Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on Twitter over the latter’s remarks about the US presidential election.
Khamenei said the US presidential election was a spectacle. According to him, this is an example of “the ugly face of liberal democracy.”
In response, Pompeo accused Khamenei of “personally stealing hundreds of millions of dollars from his people.” “Your elections are absurd, hundreds of candidates are not even allowed to run. Today your people are starving because you have spent billions on the wars of your henchmen to protect your kleptocracy, ”said the US Secretary of State.
On November 7, Democrat Joe Biden, who received 290 of the required 270 electoral votes and thus secured his victory, proclaimed himself elected President of the United States.
Biden will become the 46th President of the United States. At the end of November he will turn 78 years old, he will be the oldest American leader, reported CNN.
In turn, the current US President Donald Trump said he hopes to regain his leading position in a number of states through the courts. According to the head of state, he was leading by a wide margin in several states on the evening of election day, and then a few days later this gap “miraculously evaporated.”
