President Trump is calling the death of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani a “flawless strike” on the “number one terrorist anywhere in the world.” During a Friday news conference, the president said Soleimani was plotting “imminent and sinister attacks” on American diplomats and personnel.
However, the general was “caught in the act” and terminated.
The president said for years, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard forces and the Quds Force have targeted and injured American troops. He said Soleimani’s death should have come long ago.
“Today we remember and honor the victims of Soleimani’s many atrocities, and we take comfort in knowing that his reign of terror is over,” stated President Trump.
