President Trump spoke with the media regarding the US airstrike that killed known terrorist Soleimani before leaving for the National Championship game between LSU and Clemson.
He claimed that he did “what should have been done twenty years ago.” Soleimani had been designated a terrorist long ago but had gone on to kill over 600 Americans.
“We killed Soleimani, the number one terrorist in the world by every account . . . When the Democrats try to defend him, it’s a disgrace to our country.”
