TEHRAN (Press Shia) – A senior official at Iran’s presidential office turned the spotlight on different attitudes that US President-elect Donald Trump had expressed in his electoral campaign and reflected today in his victory speech.

“The image that Trump displayed of himself in his victory speech as the president-elect (on Wednesday) was different from his image in the election campaign. This is a considerable point,” Political Deputy of Iran’s Presidential Office Hamid Abutalebi wrote in a post on his Twitter account on Wednesday.

His comment came after Republican Donald Trump stunned the world by defeating Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, ending eight years of Democratic rule.

In his victory speech in New York City on Wednesday, Trump said, “I want to tell the world community that while we will always put America’s interests first, we will deal fairly with everyone. We will seek common ground, not hostility. Partnership not conflict."
