Iranian Director Asghar Farhadi Blasts Trump after Oscars Win (VIDEO)

2/26/2017 7:24 PM PST

The Iranian director who was almost banned from attending the Oscars because of Donald Trump’s travel ban blasted the Prez after he won Sunday … but did it in writing.

Asghar Farhadi had a rep read a statement after winning the Best Foreign Film award for his movie “The Salesman” … in which he explained his absence.

Farhadi — who’s won an Oscar before — said he is standing in solidarity with his own country — as well as the other 6 in Trump’s now-blocked EO — to protest the ban.

Since the ban was nullified by the courts, he could have attended had he wanted.
