President Trump weighed-in on his recent decision to launch a US drone strike against Iranian General Soleimani Friday; saying the commander was actively coordinating attacks on four different American Embassies in the Middle East.
“President Trump said in an interview airing Friday that Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani was plotting attacks against four embassies before the U.S. carried out last week’s airstrike that killed the top commander,” reports The Hill.
“I can reveal that I believe it would have been four embassies,” Trump told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham.

“Well, I don’t think so. But we will tell you that probably it was going to be the Embassy in Baghdad,” Trump replied.
