(Tea Party PAC) – President Trump have his first major rally of the election year on Thursday, telling a lively crowd in Toledo, Ohio that he was entirely justified in taking out the bloodthirsty killer Qassem Soleimani, the top Iranian general that the Democrats have spent the last week mourning.
Soleimani, a longtime security threat to the United States, was said to behind the attack on the US Embassy in Baghdad on December 31st, and the State Department said in a statement after the strike Trump ordered which took him out had been planning to further attack American and coalition forces.
Trump bluntly slammed the Democrats’ nonbinding War Powers Resolution which had been passed earlier on the day nearly entirely along party lines.
Trump went on to slam House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and “Liddle’ pencil-neck” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), claiming they would have tipped off the media had they been informed before the fact that they had a shot at Soleimani.
“They’re saying, ‘You should get permission from Congress, you should come in and tell us what you want to do — you should come in and tell us, so that we can call up the fake news that’s back there, and we can leak it,'” Trump said. “Lot of corruption back there.”
The president also added that it wouldn’t have made sense to alert Congress, as they had a “split-second” decision to make to go ahead with the kill.
Later in the speech, Trump also said he hoped that former Vice President Joe Biden would become the nominee, pledging to highlight the longstanding accusations of corruption raised against the Biden crime family.
“He will hear, ‘Where’s Hunter?’,’ every single debate nine times at the podium,” Trump declared.

Hunter Biden is the deadbeat, crack-addicted son of the former VP, who was given lucrative jobs and business deals that just so happened to correspond beautifully with his father’s foreign policy efforts in countries like China and Ukraine.
The younger Biden has also been locked in a contentious paternity battle over a son he fathered with a former DC area stripper who is suing him from her home town of Batesville, Arkansas.
Discovery for the case has brought quite a bit more dirt to light about Biden’s earnings, run-ins with the law, and ongoing criminal investigations into his finances.
Trump was speaking to the enthusiastic crowd after seeming to pull our nation back from the brink of war with his renowned tact, and also just hours after officials announced that it was likely Iran had, in fact, shot down a civilian airliner carrying dozens of Canadians, reportedly by mistake.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau implied that the US could be responsible and even declined to condemn Iran.
Is the new standard really that a president of the United States can’t defend against attacks on U.S. personnel by a terror regime because the regime might accidentally shoot down an airliner taking off from one of its own airports?

Trump was scathing in his rebuke of the Democrats for their heartless condemnation of the death of a master terrorist.
“The radical left Democrats have expressed outrage over the termination of this horrible terrorist,” Trump said. “Instead, they should be outraged by Soleimani’s savage crimes and the fact that his countless victims were denied justice for so long.”

Trump also told of how he had overruled a commander who said the military response to the attack at the US Embassy in Baghdad last week would not arrive until the next day.
The whole situation could have easily become “another Benghazi.”
“I said, ‘nope, get in the planes right now, have them there immediately!'” Trump said. “And, they got there immediately. … If you dare threaten our citizens, you do so at your own grave peril.”
