President Donald Trump doesn’t often mince his words, nor does he take any guff. He’s a straight shooter in ways that no other modern President could have fathomed, and that is certainly shaking up the world at large this week.
The current target of the President’s ire is Iran, after a militia backed by the regime attacked the US embassy in Baghdad. In response, Trump ordered a retaliatory drone strike that targeted and killed one of Iran’s most diabolical military leaders.
Iran has taken that response as an escalation of aggressions, and has all but declared war on the US.
President Trump issued an extraordinary warning to Tehran, however, stating that any further carnage would be met with a strategic and specific response from the almighty US military.
President Trump continued issuing threatening warnings Sunday that more action would come if Iran retaliates against the U.S. for the killing of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, which critics have been calling an illegal action taken without consulting Congress.
“These Media Posts will serve as notification to the United States Congress that should Iran strike any U.S. person or target, the United States will quickly & fully strike back, & perhaps in a disproportionate manner,” he tweeted Sunday afternoon. “Such legal notice is not required, but is given nevertheless!”
Many Democrats in Congress had said the Trump administration failed to consult with legislative leaders before conducting the drone attack Friday against Soleimani, the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ elite Quds Force, and the White House faced a barrage of questions about the killing’s legality.
Trump has long been playing nice with Iran, even going so far as to call off a possible airstrike against the Persian nation months ago, after the Iranian Revolutionary Guard was deemed responsible for downing a US drone over the Strait of Hormuz.
