Hizbollah's Hassan Nasrallah was correct about Obama, could he be too about Trump?

Hizbollah's Hassan Nasrallah just called Donald Trump, 45th president of the United States, "a7mak". In its kindest translations, it would mean "fool". In cruder terms, "idiot".
I here go back how Nasrallah assessed former president 44th president Barack Obama, when we were all oohing and aaahing about his election, his verdict was clear: Nothing will change. "la Obama wala ghayro" - neither Obama nor anyone else. Time proved Nasrallah right about his assessment. Whereas Obama was an eloquent speaker, his on-the-ground strategy was no less bloody than George W. Bush.
Which makes me wonder about how right he will be in the way he viewed Trump!
