Republicans Laud Trump for Strike on ‘Pre-Eminent Sponsor of Terrorism’

Republican lawmakers praised President Donald Trump for authorizing the airstrike that killed Iran’s top general Qasim Soleimani.

While Democratic lawmakers expressed concern that the strike could lead to armed conflict with Iran, Republicans praised Trump for authorizing the strike that killed “the wold’s pre-eminent sponsor of terrorism.”

“Tonight’s a good night,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) wrote in a tweet on Thursday night. “Soleimani, the world’s pre-eminent sponsor of terrorism, is now dead. He spent decades spreading death and destruction across the region.”

Soleimani was the head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds Force— a shadowy organization that was designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. in 2007.

While Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) questioned whether Trump had fully considered the ramifications of the strike, Crenshaw defended it as “a response to aggression [and] a deterrent to future attacks.”

Several other Republican lawmakers praised the move:

Shortly after news of the strike broke, Trump tweeted out a picture of an American flag with no comment.

Meanwhile, Iran vowed to seek “severe revenge” against the U.S. for the strike.


  1. Did you read the story about the Iraqis partying in the streets and yelling “Thanks Uncle Trump” for killing the Iranian leader? The Iranian was nothing but a terrorist to the middle Eastern people.

  2. >Always Confused – because HE admits it<

    Appears you're still on a terrorism-loving goal as a Socialist/Fascist anti-American. Have you packed your bags yet to go help support your ilk kill Americans in the Middle East?

  3. This was one of the best decisions President Trump has made while in office. It lets not only iran but all countries know that we will not tolerate terrorists. Finally a President doing what’s right in the eyes of freedom.

    1. You are very misinformed. Nothing good will come from this dangerous illegal assassination.
