Trump insists Suleimani ‘probably’ threatened ‘four embassies’ as Fox News presses him to explain ‘imminent’ danger

Published

President Donald Trump is now claiming that slain Iranian general Qassem Suleimani was about to launch attacks on four unspecified embassies before he was taken out by an American drone strike.

In an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham scheduled to air on Friday night, the president claims that Suleimani was an “imminent” danger to Americans abroad because of his plans to attack multiple embassies.

Ingraham asked the president to specifically name what the slain Iranian general had targeted.

“We will tell you that probably it was going to be the embassy in Baghdad,” Trump said. “I can reveal that I believe it probably would’ve been four embassies.”

So far the administration has offered no evidence that there was an imminent threat from Suleimani that justified his assassination, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has repeatedly flailed around when asked to explain what he means when he says the late Iranian leader posed an imminent threat.

"Covid-19 has already infected more than 80,000 people in 37 countries, causing more than 2,600 deaths, and experts doubt it will slow in the spring," wrote Boot. "That a virus that started in China could have a bad impact on the United States should be no surprise: Diseases don’t respect borders any more than terrorists or trade flows do. Transnational threats require transnational solutions. To cite but one example, many of the medicines and medical supplies that Americans need, including N95 face masks, come from China."

President Donald Trump apparently left Secretary Alex Azar out of the loop on Vice President Mike Pence taking over the coronavirus response.

According to the Washington Post, Azar was "blindsided" by the decision, according to five people familiar with the incident. Azar learned about it moments before the press conference this afternoon.

Pence said that he would run a task force at the Department of Health and Human Services, which Azar is in charge of.

President Donald Trump did a Wednesday press conference where he said that the coronavirus was under control and only a little over one dozen people had it and it would be down to five people soon. In fact, the U.S. hit its 60th person. One dramatic shift happened in the virus, however.

According to KCRA, the first community-spread infection has occurred in California.

A Solano County patient “had no known exposure to the virus through travel or close contact with a known infected individual,” said the California Department of Public Health.
