Donald Trump doubles down on accusing Democrats of trying to ‘defend’ Qassem Soleimani after tweeting astonishing attack with Nancy Pelosi photoshopped in a hijab and Chuck Schumer in a turban
Donald Trump said Monday that Democrats are a ‘disgrace’ to the U.S., insisting those within the party are defending slain Iranian General Qassem Soleimani.
‘When the Democrats try and defend him – it’s a disgrace to our country, they can’t do that. And let me tell you, it’s not working politically very well for them,’ Trump told reporters before departing the White House for New Orleans where he will attend the college football national championship game.
Democrats have lamented the president didn’t inform Congress before launching the attack and have raised questions over the intelligence that led the president to order the drone strike.
‘The Democrats and the Fake News are trying to make terrorist Soleimani into a wonderful guy, only because I did what should have been done for 20 years,’ Trump posted to Twitter Monday. ‘Anything I do, whether it’s the economy, military, or anything else, will be scorned by the Rafical Left, Do Nothing Democrats!’ he said, misspelling ‘radical.’
