Washington sources reported that US President donald trump gave a minute-to-minute account of the US drone strikes that killed Iranian military commander Qassem soleimani in remarks to a Republican fund-raising dinner on friday night, according to audio obtained by CNN. Meanwhile with his typical dramatic flourish, donald trump recounted the scene as he monitored the strikes from the white house Situation Room when soleimani was killed.
Furthermore donald trump spoke in a ballroom at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm beach, florida, at a Republican event that raised $10 million for Trump's 2020 re-election campaign and for the Republican National Committee. Perhaps reporters were not allowed in for the event. CNN said it obtained an audio recording of Trump's remarks. The white house did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Apparently Iran's Khamenei says revenge attacks on US targets in iraq showed support of God
Moreover in his first friday prayer sermon for eight years, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah ali Khamenei said it's retaliatory missile strikes on US targets in iraq showed it had the support of God. Accordingly the january 3 killing of soleimani at Baghdad airport prompted iran to retaliate with missile strikes against US forces in iraq days later and almost triggered a broad war between the two countries. Moreover it was the most detailed account that trump has given of the drone strike, which has drawn criticism from some US lawmakers because neither the president nor his advisers have provided public information to back up their statements that soleimani presented an "imminent" threat to Americans in the region.
