Iran's $3 Million Bounty for Killing Trump Is 'Ridiculous'

"They're together sir", Trump said he was told of the two leaders.

It was not clear if this is a threat endorsed by Iran's clerical leaders. No emotion. 2 minutes and 11 seconds to live, sir. Sir, they have approximately one minute to live, sir.

The stand-off erupted into tit-for-tat military strikes this month when the U.S. military killed Gen Soleimani in a targeted drone strike as he was driven from Baghdad airport and Iran responded with a missile attack on an Iraqi airbases used by USA forces.

"Then all of a sudden, boom", he went on.

Instead, he described Soleimani as a "noted terrorist" who "was down on our list" and "was supposed to be in his country" before traveling to other nations in the region. "'They're gone, sir. Cutting off'".

Instagram removes the IGTV button you weren't using
There's no way for creators to monetize videos, and in turn lackluster content could be preventing viewers from sticking around. IGTV, which was launched in June 2018 , has failed to repeat the success of past Instagram launches such as Stories.

I won't pretend to be an expert in global law, but I don't think the laws of armed conflict include provisions related to those who "say bad things". Trump continued. "That was the last I heard from him". Many onlookers welcomed the slaying of Soleimani, who most recently had led Iran's military support for the brutal Assad regime in Syria, and is blamed for the deaths of countless civilians. Nor did he reportedly wish to be compared to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, who were in power when a facility in Benghazi was attacked in September 2012 and a usa ambassador killed.

Trump also falsely claimed that the Soleimani strike took out the leader of Hezbollah, telling the crowd he got "two for the price of one". He also repeated an erroneous claim that the Iraqi was "the head of Hezbollah". United States officials have declined to elaborate on that claim.

According to audio recordings of the event, the president said Soleimani's prior comments incentivized his decision to authorize the strike. Conan became a media talking point, not least because of prolonged confusion fed by conflicting official statements, over whether it was a girl or a boy.

The President spoke in a ballroom at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, at a Republican event that raised $10 million for Mr Trump's 2020 re-election campaign and for the Republican National Committee.
