President Donald Trump politicized his assassination of Iranian General Qassim Suleimani during a 2020 re-election campaign rally in Toledo, Ohio.


Trump attacked Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) -- who he referred to as "Nervous Nancy" -- during his speech.

Without offering any evidence, Trump argued that Pelosi would have leaked word of the attack to the "fake news" media.

"That's a lot of corruption out there," Trump said, pointing to the press corps.

He also attacked House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA).
