But on the day of one of Donald Trump’s most historic victories, the President faced an unexpected betrayal.
And Donald Trump was blindsided by what one Fox News host said on camera.
Donald Trump ordered a drone strike that took out Iranian General and Quds Force Supreme Commander Qassem Soleimani.
Even Huffington Post journalist Yashar Ali said this kill was a bigger deal than Osama bin Laden.
That’s because Soleimani was not just any battlefield commander.
Soleimani was a combination of the Vice President, Secretary of State and CIA Director which made him the second most powerful man in Iran.
In that role, Soleimani constructed Iran’s network of proxy terrorist networks and their strategy to strike at targets around the world and kill innocents in pursuit of Iran’s Islamic agenda.
The fake news media was not impressed with this victory for America.
“Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace typified the fake news media’s framing of Donald Trump’s achievement by claiming past Presidents Bush and Obama passed on killing Soleimani because they feared how Iran would retaliate.
“Both President Obama and President Bush had the options at several points to take out Soleimani, and they decided as much as they hated him, not to do that because they were worried how the Iranians would respond to that. That is the concern. They talked about harsh retaliation, what form will that take? Will there be military strikes? Will there be terror attacks? Iran has a very sophisticated cyber capability. Could there be cyber attacks on the U.S. homeland? If this is the kind of strike that finally gets Tehran’s attention and they pulled back, that’s a great message for the U.S. On the other hand, if they simply escalate and respond to our escalation with another one of their own, people will have to decide how far we want to take this,” Wallace stated.
That is completely not true.
Obama let Soleimani slip through his sights because Obama believed in appeasing Iran.
Despite the fact that Soleimani oversaw the murder of 600 American soldiers, Obama removed Soleimani from the list of Iranian officials facing sanctions as part of the disastrous nuclear deal.
George W. Bush likely passed on taking out Soleimani because his disastrous decision to invade Iraq limited his options in the Middle East.
President Trump correctly stated that the United States should have eliminated Soleimani long ago.
It was left to President Trump to clean up the mess left behind by Barack Obama and others.
That fact offended fake news reporters like Wallace more than anything.
So-called “journalists” worshipped Barack Obama.
Fake news reporters live in the land of make believe where Obama enjoyed success after success and the nuclear deal constrained Iran.
In reality, Obama forked over tens of millions of dollars Iran used to fund acts of terror around the world.
The deal also didn’t stop Iran’s ballistic missile program and would allow Iran to one day acquire a nuclear weapon.
Donald Trump was left to pick up the pieces from this disastrous hand Barack Obama left behind.
And instead of covering the President killing a terrorist that bore responsibility for the deaths of over 600 American soldiers, Fox News joined in the fake news chorus of trying to make this seem like a defeat for Donald Trump.
