Trump: It Doesn’t Matter If Top Iranian General Killed In Airstrike Posed An Imminent Threat




President Trump on Monday said it didn’t matter if Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who was killed by a U.S. drone strike directed by the president earlier this month, posed an imminent threat to the United States because of his “horrible past.”

Trump also asserted that his national security team agreed on the imminent threat posed by Soleimani that led to the decision to kill him.

Despite his claim, Defense Secretary Mark Esper on Sunday said that he “didn’t see” specific evidence that supported the president’s claim on Friday that the Iranian commander killed in a U.S. airstrike was plotting attacks against four U.S. embassies.



“The Fake News Media and their Democrat Partners are working hard to determine whether or not the future attack by terrorist Soleimani was ‘eminent’ or not, & was my team in agreement,” Trump tweeted Monday morning, incorrectly spelling imminent.

“The answer to both is a strong YES., but it doesn’t really matter because of his horrible past!” the president continued.




Trump later accused the media and Democrats of “trying to make terrorist Soleimani into a wonderful guy, only because I did what should have been done for 20 years.”
