U.S. President Donald Trump, whose term ends on January 20, “died as a politician. This was said by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, his speech on local TV quoted by the media.
Rouhani added that he was glad for the “death” of the American politician and called him a tyrant. “The political isolation of the U.S. is Trump’s legacy, the U.S. has found itself alone in its politics,” the Iranian leader stressed.
In mid-October 2020, Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayeh said that the country would be helped “only by God’s help” if Trump is re-elected.

In Washington, D.C., heightened security measures have been taken in connection with the inauguration. Much of downtown adjacent to the White House and Congress is closed to traffic. Capitol Hill is cordoned off and access is restricted.
