UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS)
US President Donald Trump on Monday accused his Democratic opponents of being allies of Iran and reposted a compound photo showing party leaders in Islamic dress.
Trump’s latest attack on Senate leader Democrats Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi follows criticism of the president after he ordered the killing of Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander General Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad this month.
“Anything I do, be it economic, military or otherwise, will be met with disdain by the radical left and by the Democrats who do nothing,” Trump said on Twitter.
He republished a composite image through Photoshop showing Pelosi wearing a veil and Schumer with a turban.
The killing of Soleimani near the airport in Baghdad raised fears of a possible war in the region.
Trump insists that it was necessary to kill Soleimani to prevent imminent attacks on four embassies.
But senior administration officials have provided mixed accounts, prompting Democrats to question the entire process, which precedes Trump’s trial before the Senate with the intent to isolate him.
In the tweets of the two, Trump accused the Democrats and the “false” media of trying to “show Soleimani as a wonderful person, just because I did what should have been done 20 years ago.”
Responding to criticism that accused him of recklessness by killing Soleimani – who some say is the second most important figure in the Iranian regime – Trump again insisted that he was an imminent threat.
He emphasized that even if the imminent threat he posed did not warrant his killing, Soleimani’s history justified the move.
“The false media and its democratic partners are striving to determine whether the next terrorist attack that Soleimani considers imminent or not and if my team is in agreement,” he said. “The answer to both issues is + yes + strongly, but that does not matter because of its appalling history.”
Trump said at an election rally last week that Pelosi and other Democrats could not be trusted in cases linked to classified information such as Soleimani’s murder.
