Scheller praises Trump’s strike against Iranian warlord

Republican congressional candidate Lisa Scheller today praised President Donald Trump’s bold action to eliminate Iranian warlord Qassim Soleimani, who has commanded armed factions that have attacked Americans in Iraq.

“By targeting and eliminating Qassim Soleimani, President Trump has served notice on terrorist states that the time for attacking Americans is over,” Scheller said. “The president made his intentions clear and proved today that he will back his words with action.”

Soleimani was Tehran’s agent in Iraq and he oversaw factions that killed and wounded American troops and civilians and attempted to storm the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.

Warned to stop, Soleimani openly mocked President Trump’s warning, saying “We are near you, where you can’t even imagine. We are ready. We are the man of this arena.”

Scheller said the president’s action has likely saved American lives while putting fresh credibility behind U.S. warnings when confronting our enemies.
