President Trump: Soleimani’s reign of terror is over

Later Friday night, during an event with evangelical supporters, Trump addressed the airstrike, saying, “Qassem Soleimani has been killed and his bloody rampage is now forever gone.”

The killing of Soleimani, the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force, marks a major escalation in the standoff between Washington and Tehran, which has careened from one crisis to another since Trump withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal and imposed crippling sanctions.

Senior State Department officials described the killing as a defensive strike supported by solid intelligence and claimed Soleimani was planning imminent attacks against United States interests and personnel in the region.
