Jan 3, 2020 ~ Democrats all say killing Soleimani was the wrong thing to do as they have to condemn everything Trump does. Soleimani led militias targeted and killed over 600 Americans and many thousands of other people. He was arguably the worlds biggest terrorist now that al Baghdadi is dead

Jan 4, 2020 ~ Dems claim Trump should have gotten Congressional approval for the strike on Soleimani and should have informed Iraq. Double standard because Obama did not get Congressional approval for bin Laden or inform Pakistan. Would have jeopardized and this was not going to war either.

Jan 7, 2020 ~ Iran responds to killing of Soleimani by launching missiles at 2 bases in Iraq. Response was seen as a 'face saving' stand down as they warned it was coming through back channels and did minimal damage. Trump shows how action instead of appeasement minimizes American lives lost.
