Iranian President Hassan Rouhani declared that President Trump will be dead ”in a few days” during a speech to his cabinet as the first anniversary of the killing of a general in the country’s military.
“One of the effects of this stupid and disgraceful act,” Mr. Rouhani said of the airstrike that killed Soleimani, “was that Trumpism ended.”
“In a few days, the life of this criminal will end and he will go to the dustbin of history,” the official Iranian government site quoted him in English as having said.
The U.S. Department of Defense blamed Soleimani for hundreds of deaths and injuries to Americans; he was purportedly killed while in neighboring Iraq while ”actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region.”
On Thursday, the pentagon announced that the Nimitz aircraft carrier, which was off the coast of Somalia, would be heading back to its home port. It has previously operated in the Middle East.
Rouhani has also considered Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as the ”main perpetrators of this crime.”
