According to Breitbart News, President Donald Trump defended his decision to take out Iran Gen. Qasem Soleimani in a surprise call to Rush Limbaugh’s show.
“This should have been done for the last 15-20 years,” Trump said. “Him in particular. He was their real military leader. He’s a terrorist. He was designated as a terrorist by Obama, and then Obama did nothing about it.”
Trump noted that Soleimani was responsible for providing IEDs and anti-tank bombs to terrorists to help them target American troops in the Middle East.
