House Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise said those criticizing President Trump for taking out Soleimani are only worried about their own political agenda.
On Saturday’s broadcast of the House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) said President Trump’s actions were “decisive’ and that he took them “to protect Americans.”
Last Thursday, President Trump green-lighted a drone strike that killed two of Iran’s top terrorist leaders, Major-General Qassem Soleimani, head of the Quds Force, and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis who was in charge of the Iranian-linked Popular Mobilization Forces.
Since then, Democrats, Liberals, and their media cohorts have called President Trump a ‘Murderer,’ and ‘Warmonger.’
Of course, these traitorous Americans completely ignore the fact that according to both the Obama administration, as well as the Trump administration, Major-General Qassem Soleimani was directly responsible for killing over 600 Americans in Iraq.
Some Democrat politicians such as Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep, Rashida Tlaib and Rep. Debbie Wassermann Schultz accused President Trump of only killing Soleimani to distract America from his Impeachment Trial.
Scalise asked” What do they [Democrats] tell Americans who lives are at risk in the next terrorist, let alone the previous attacks where Soleimani has killed hundreds of Americans?
“Any responsible commander-in-chief would have done the same thing, but President Trump’s the one who did it, and I’m glad that the president had the fortitude to say we’re going to put America first.
We’re going to protect America and our allies around the world by doing this. And you know, if somebody wants to criticize him for it, I think they’re going to have to look at a mirror and say, whose side are you on if you can question something that actually makes America safer?”
