(DCWatchdog.com) – Happening Now: They may be political enemies who personally despise each other, but when it comes to the terrorist country of Iran, President Joe Biden and his administration say it will do everything possible to protect former President Donald Trump and officials of his administration from the assassins believed to be targeting them for death.
As reported by the Washington Examiner in a new report headlined “White House worried Iran is plotting assassination attempts against Trump administration officials”:
“Iran’s imposition of “sanctions” on dozens of Americans amounts to an assassination threat against members of former President Donald Trump’s administration, according to a senior U.S. official who threatened “severe consequences” for any harm done to them.
“‘Make no mistake: the United States of America will protect and defend its citizens,’ White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan said Sunday. ‘This includes those serving the United States now and those who formerly served.’
“Iranian officials have made explicit their interest in killing one of the people involved in the U.S. strike that killed Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Gen. Qassem Soleimani. The regime observed the second anniversary of his death last week, which occasioned a flurry of truculent rhetoric and the unveiling of economic sanctions by Iran that U.S. observers take as a proxy for a threat of violence.” [emphasis added]
But Sullivan, on behalf of Biden, fired back at the Iranians in defense of Trump and all of Trump’s administration, who may be targeted for death by the Iranians.
“‘As Americans, we have our disagreements on politics,” he said. “We have our disagreements on Iran policy. But we are united in our resolve against threats and provocations. We are united in the defense of our people.” [emphasis added]
