Details of the Murder of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani Revealed, Trump: One Bullet for Two Targets at a Time

Major General Qassem Soleimani was killed in a drone attack at Baghdad airport. - President Donald Trump recounted minute by minute details of the US attack that killed Iranian General Qassem Soleimani during his speech to Republican donors at his private residence in Mar-a-Lago, South Florida.

Reporting from, Sunday (1/19/2020), President Trump spoke at a GOP fundraising dinner Friday night. He explained new details about the attack that killed General Qassem Soleimani, which exacerbated tensions in the region. This attack caused a dispute with Congress over its constitutional authority to wage war.

In his speech held in the gold-plated ballroom at Mar-a-Lago, he claimed that Soleimani said bad things about the United States. This is what led to the decision to authorize his murder.

"How much of this nonsense should we listen to?" Trump asked the audience.

Trump did not describe the impending threat that led to his decision to kill Soleimani as a justification used by his government after the attack. Instead, he described Soleimani as a "famous terrorist" who was on the US terrorist list. Soleimani was supposed to be in his country before traveling to other countries in the region.

Trump described in detail. He watched from afar when Soleimani arrived at Baghdad International Airport. At that time, Soleimani met with Iraqi paramilitary leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the head of the Hezbollah Kataib.

Trump mistakenly claimed that Soleimani met "the head of Hezbollah". For the record, the Lebanese-backed Hezbollah group is Iran separated from the Iraqi Hezbollah Kataib group led by Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. Trump claimed the attacks he agreed were like shooting "one bullet for two targets at once."

Trump goes on to recount listening to military officials as they witness the attack from cameras a few kilometers in the sky.

"They are together, sir. Sir, they have two minutes and 11 seconds. No emotions. 2 minutes and 11 seconds to live, sir. They are in the car, they are in an armored vehicle. Sir, they have about one minute to live, sir. 30 seconds. 10, 9, 8 ... "Then suddenly, boom. They died, sir. Done. I said, where is this guy? That's the last I heard from him," said Trump quoted military officials to him.

"He shouldn't be invincible," Trump said of Soleimani.

In his remarks, Trump also repeated the claim that ISIS leader Abu Bakar al-Baghdadi died "screaming" after the US attack on his compound.

"He was screaming, going crazy," Trump said.
