Former nuclear negotiator and hardline politician Saeed Jalili shows up in Anti-American Demonstrations

Former nuclear negotiator  Saeed Jalili gave a speech in Tehran on the “National Day of Resistance Against Global Arrogance.”  According to Al-Monitor’s Iran Pulse,   Jalili said   that “the logic of Imam [Khomeini] was that ‘Death to America’ was death to the grandiosity and humiliation of nations.”   Despite his repeated appearances in gatherings by hardliners,  Jalili’s political fortune in Iran is on the decline.   The political establishment has decided to move along Rouhani’s political thinking and strategy,  and unless Rouhani experiences a major failure,  people like Jalili will not have much influence.
