Snowflake Trump Says Soleimani Was ‘Saying Bad Things’ Before He Had Him Murdered

He was aggressing against the US by moving his mouth

President Trump told Republican donors Friday evening that Qassem Soleimani, the top Iranian general who was killed in a drone strike this month, was “saying bad things” about the U.S. before his death.

Trump offered a minute-by-minute recounting of the strike in Baghdad at a fundraiser at his Mar-a-Lago estate, CNN reported Saturday, citing audio it obtained of his remarks. He told the high-dollar donors that Soleimani’s invectives against America helped lead to his decision to authorize his killing. 

“How much of this shit do we have to listen to?” Trump was quoted as saying. “How much are we going to listen to?” 

Soleimani, largely considered to have been the second-most powerful man in Iran behind Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, oversaw Tehran’s international proxy network of armed forces and is believed to be responsible for the deaths of hundreds of U.S. troops in Iraq at the hands of Iran-backed groups. [Yay, nonsense.]

The Trump administration defended the strike earlier this month, saying the general was in the process of planning an “imminent attack” on U.S. interests.

Trump did not describe such a threat in his remarks to donors, saying only that Soleimani was a “noted terrorist” who “was down on our list” and “was supposed to be in his country” before traveling to Iraq.

Since the strike, the administration has toggled between saying Soleimani posed an imminent threat and pointing to his past malign activities in the Middle East.

Trump’s remarks at the event go further than other comments made publicly by members of the administration about the strike, which brought Washington and Tehran to the brink of war.

Iran retaliated by launching missiles at two Iraqi bases that housed U.S. troops, though no service members were seriously injured or killed and both sides signaled they would deescalate following the response.

Trump appeared to acknowledge the ramifications of the strike, saying it “shook up the world.”

“He was supposed to be invincible,” Trump said of Soleimani. [Actually, dubbed the “living martyr” by the Supreme Leader it was understood he was living on borrowed time.]

Trump has touted the Soleimani strike recently on the campaign trail as well as last year’s operation killing ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as he seeks to shore up his bona fides as commander in chief heading into the November election.

    Didn’t we all know that the Airhead trump and his cohorts were lying all along? Of course we did, along with the rest of the world! He just can’t tolerate being humiliated
    because of the truth and doesn’t like playing 2nd fiddle to anyone…what a totally
    criminal and weak mind he has…Soleimani was a good military man who was defending his country and surrounding areas from the invaders, US and NATO!! He definitely was not the scumbag that the brainless trump is.

    I’ve been saying it for a while.. Trump had Soleimani killed because of how he mocked Trump especially and Trump’s failing policies and threats. Trump admits it.

      How can he be upset about that, has he no idea how pervasively ridiculed he is by even his own citizens. Next maybe he will assasinate Macron and BoJO caught on mike mocking him when he was in the same room.

    The US is a very unstable country as with Great Britain. Both claim its Iraq and Iran who are unstable. But it is the US and Britain, who have started or been involved in Wars since day one, certainly not Iran with hundreds of years history of no war except to defend against Iraq who attacked them with American Chemical weapons. Now Mr Unstable Trump.
