The Hill Seems Rather Upset That Trump Said It Didn’t Matter If Iranian Attacks Were Imminent

Trump says it doesn’t matter if Soleimani posed an imminent threat

President Trump on Monday downplayed the significance of any imminent threat to the U.S. before he ordered the strike that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, raising new questions about the intelligence preceding the move.

The comments marked the latest revision in what’s become a shifting explanation about the threat Soleimani posed to U.S. personnel in the Middle East. Over the weekend, some of Trump’s top advisers were unable to confirm his claim that Soleimani was planning to target four U.S. embassies.

The episode has prompted renewed scrutiny of the Jan. 3 strike that nearly set off a wider conflict in the Middle East.

“This administration already has a credibility problem, and President Trump has a pretty casual relationship with the truth,” said William Inboden, who served on former President George W. Bush’s National Security Council. “So even when he does what I would regard as the right thing or a good policy decision with Soleimani, he then hurts himself and widens the credibility gap with these shifting explanations.”

Can you guess what’s missing in this article? The actual full comment by Trump in full. Which is kinda important, as it would harm the Narrative they are trying to spin

Later on in the article they have a little bit

Trump on Monday insisted the threat posed by Soleimani was imminent and that his team was in agreement on the strike, but tweeted “it doesn’t really matter because of his horrible past!”

Kinda missing context, eh? Previously, Chalfant and Samuels wrote

The drone strike was widely cheered by Republicans, who argued it was long overdue given Soleimani’s actions as head of Iran’s Quds Force, a designated terrorist organization. He had also been blamed for the deaths of hundreds of American service members in the Middle East.

That is rather a horrible past, is it not? It’s interesting that they note that only Republicans were cheering. There’s really no revision, Trump is simply noting that Soleimani is a terrible person. Seriously, going by Dem talking points, it was wrong for Obama to take out Bin Laden.

    Most people don’t believe what Trump says
    Mexico will pay for the wall

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    trump and his sycophants justified the immediacy of the action by claiming they were preventing an imminent attach, which was clearly false. Then tRump lied further by claiming it was against 4 US embassies!! Now, it doesn’t matter if there was an imminent threat or not, since the guy was a bad hombre!
