President Trump and low turnout in Iran elections

Iran held parliamentary elections on Friday (21/2/20). The results were in favor of the conservatives.

However, the elections were marked by the lowest turnout since 1979. This is despite calls by Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei for voters to participate as a matter of “religious obligation”

US President Donald Trump is said to be encouraged by the low turnout in the Iranian elections and is taking credit for this development.

What about his strategy at this point?
