Nikki Haley: The Only Ones Mourning Soleimani Are the Democrats

Former ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley blasted Democrats for criticizing President Donald Trump’s decision to order the strike on Iranian general Qasem Soleimani.

In Monday’s interview on Fox News’s “Hannity,” Haley claimed Democratic leadership and presidential candidates are the only people who are “mourning” Soleimani’s death.

“You don’t see anyone standing up for Iran. You’re not hearing any of the Gulf members, you’re not hearing China, you’re not hearing Russia. The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are Democrat leadership and our Democrat presidential candidates.”

Watch her comments below:

She added that the rest of the world leaders knew Soleimani had “evil veins” and understood his role in coordinating militias around the world to conduct attacks against a variety of targets.

“No one else in the world, because they knew that this man had evil veins. They knew what he was capable of. And they saw the destruction and the lives lost based from his hands.”

Additionally, she said the strike on Soleimani left Iranians “completely flat-footed” because it followed months of restraint in the face of Iranian aggression.

“What the president did left the Iranian regime completely flat-footed. They did not see this coming. They thought they could continue to do their multiple strikes. But when it got to the lives of Americans, the president is never going to allow that to happen. It happened with the contractor, when they started to threaten our diplomats at the embassy, our military personnel, the president put a stop to it.”

Haley described Soleimani as Iran’s “number one strategist” who told Iran’s proxies around the world “who to kill, when to kill, and how to kill.”

She also noted that the United Nations Security Council banned Soleimani from leaving Iran and questioned why he was in Iraq.

Her comments come as Trump faces continued criticism from Democrats who have called for open hearings into Trump’s decision to order the strike, and a resolution to limit Trump’s authority in regards to military actions related to Iran.

Responses

  1. I would have thought Haley would be smart enough to realize that bombing ANYONE on an allies’ soil without their permission is not a good move. Evidently not.

  2. “Make Nikki Haley SANE again!” Phyllis

    I disagree. I don’t want her to be accepted as “sane” ever again. She drank the royal Kool-Aid or whatever analogy you want to use and is just a normal member of the American Fascist Party. Therefore I don’t want her anywhere near power ever again.

  3. I think she doesn’t speak for Democrats , the taking of a life is a serious issue. And what our problem is the fact he feels he can do whatever he likes without informing anyone. He is President not dictator, it’s time the Republicans start to follow the constitution, it seems to me that they are trying to change the rules and that is very dangerous.

    1. News Flash………Trump was operating under the Guidelines of OUR Constitution and Laws. Do a little more research next time you decide to make ignorant comments. Specially with regards to the drone strikes which killed hundreds of innocent citizens as well as children and Americans under orders of (your lord and savior) BHO……..!!!!

  4. Make Nikki Haley SANE again! Being concerned about the coming consequences of the action is NOT MOURNING the death of a brutal military officer. Bibi is the only leader praising the action and is the SAME and SOLE leader who encouraged the U.S. to go to war with Iran for a decade. And now even Israel has made it clear they had nothing to do with the killing of Soleimani. Soleimani flew from Lebanon to Iraq on the day of his death. He apparently did not get the memo he could not leave Iran. She should look into that.

    1. He knew he was not supposed travel to Iraq. He was undermining our relationship with Iraq and planning more attacks. He was responsible for the attacks on our embassies, including the one that killed 4 Americans on Hillary’s watch. He had to go, just as Bin Laden had to go. Funny, I don’t recall conservatives getting upset when Obama got Bin Laden. Hypocrisy.
