In one of the best moves of his presidency…

Trump did the entire world a favor and took out one of the most notorious terrorists in the world – Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.

Of course, the fact that it made the Left go loony and start protesting the death of a terrorist that is responsible for killing over 600 Americans was a bit of a bonus.

It was the strangest turn of events politics have ever seen…

You had Liberals actually railing against Trump for assassinating a TERRORIST.

It just proves that it doesn’t matter what Trump does—the Left is going to hate him no matter what.

Not only did they rail against Trump…

They SUPPORTED one of the most brutally oppressive regimes in the world today by praising Iran’s leadership and demanding that Trump show restraint.

It’s truly mindboggling.

However, regardless of what the Left said…

The Right overwhelmingly supported our president for doing the entire world a service. It was the correct decision to make—and it didn’t even ignite a war.

President Trump Doing His Job

Iran was smart not to engage with the US…

While they might prop Russia up as an ally, if push came to shove, Putin isn’t dumb enough to engage with the United States over Iran. Russia really gets NOTHING out of their relationship with the Middle-Eastern nation – and the world knows it.

It’s amazing that people got mad at Trump for performing one of his jobs…

Namely making America safer whenever he can.

Trump should be taking out as many threats to America as possible, right?

Making America great again means keeping Americans safe all around the world.

You would think after the reaction the Left and mainstream media had over Soleimani, he may be hesitant to do anything else that would be in a similar vein…

But you’d be wrong.

Trump doesn’t let the Left dictate what he does…

He does what’s best for our country – and what’s best for our country is ensuring that terrorism doesn’t thrive at home or abroad.

The White House recently confirmed that Trump and his administration have taken out high-ranking Al Qaeda operatives in Yemen.

In a statement from the White House, “At the direction of President Donald J. Trump, the United States conducted a counterterrorism operation in Yemen that successfully eliminated Qasim al-Rimi, a founder and the leader of al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and a deputy to al-Qa’ida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri. Rimi joined al-Qa’ida in the 1990s, working in Afghanistan for Osama bin Laden. Under Rimi, AQAP committed unconscionable violence against civilians in Yemen and sought to conduct and inspire numerous attacks against the United States and our forces.”

This is great news…

However, it’s the one that got away that sticks in Trump’s craw.

The One That Got Away

In conjunction with the operation that took these two terrorists out, there was another mission that wasn’t as successful.

On the same day Trump took out Soleimani, his administration mounted a targeted attack against Abdul Reza Shahlai (another official within Iran’s Quds Force).

The New York Times reported, “The disclosure of a second mission indicated that the Trump administration was attempting to target a larger set of Iranian military and paramilitary leaders than was previously known. The unsuccessful airstrike in Yemen was aimed at Abdul Reza Shahlai, an official with Iran’s Quds Force, a potent paramilitary organization. He was known as a key financier for Iran’s proxy wars.”

Trump may have missed…

But that doesn’t mean that Shahlai will be safe. He’s gotten the attention of the president of the United States – which means he’s attracted the attention of the mightiest military on earth.

So…

It’s just a matter of time before another murderer winds up in the crosshairs.

Good on you, Mr. President…

Thank you for making America safer.

We appreciate it.
