"It Doesn't Really Matter": Trump Changes Story on Soleimani Killing

  • Trump officials struggle to defend claims of embassy plots

Esper also again defended the Trump administration's decision to target General Soleimani, saying the Iranian commander became a "compelling target to take out" because "there was complete agreement based on what he had done and what he was planning to do". And what about the long-term effects of Soleimani's murder-by-drone?

In a news story published January 13 on Page A1, Associated Press reporter Robert Burns wrote: "Defense Secretary Mark Esper explicitly said Sunday that he had seen no hard evidence that four American embassies had been under possible threat when President Trump authorized the targeting of Iran's top commander, raising questions about the scale of the threat described by Trump last week".

Progressive political analysts Al Sharpton and Van Jones are anxious that none of the Democratic presidential candidates who appeared in Tuesday night's debate will be able to take on President Trump.

With Siakam cooled off, Kyle Lowry , Serge Ibaka , and Powell did the best they could ahead. Asked for his thoughts on Lowry's play this season, DeRozan said: "He's been bad ".

"The answer to both is a strong YES" included Trump prior to firmly insisting that "it doesn't really matter because of his frightful past!"

Keen viewers of Trump defined just how this was one more instance of his negligence for global regulation which restricts assassination unless there is a brewing risk.

Trump's failing to give any kind of proof of the risk postured by Soleimani as well as to validate his eliminating with absolutely nothing greater than the case he has a "horrible past" would certainly be viewed as establishing an extremely unsafe precedented in global events. "The problem is that he thinks he has the power to kill anyone with a "horrible past", kept in mind among Trump's Twitter fans.
