Trump Says Democrat Leaks Would Have Allowed Soleimani to Escape

Donald Trump is holding his first rally of the year on Thursday night in Dayton, Ohio. It has not been the best day for the President. Today, congress passed a vote that will limit Trump’s powers when it comes to declaring war in Iran. Interestingly, Trump loyalist Matt Gaetz sided with the Democrats during the vote.

This action was very much on the mind of the President when he spoke to the rally-goers in Dayton. Trump told the audience that he couldn’t brief Democrats on the Soleimani operation because they would have leaked the plan and allowed the Iranian to escape.

The President began, “Now I see the radical left Democrats have expressed outrage over the termination of this horrible terrorist. Bernie Sanders, crazy Bernie. Has condemned the U.S. military strike on Soleimani, the worlds top terrorist. Think of it. The world’s top terrorist”

Trump then concocted a scenario involving California Congressman Adam Schiff. He continued:

“Schiff is a big leaker. He leaks to crazy CNN, the little red light on. Not too many people are watching CNN. He leaks, so he will say you know, off the record, I’ve got to hurry up because everyone’s watching me in the hallway on my cell phone. Off the record, they’ve got the number one terrorist in the world, Soleimani. They are going to get him. They are going to take them out in the next 10 minutes. Please don’t tell anybody I told you. So we have breaking news. President Trump within the next 20, 25 minutes, looks to be taking out terrorist General Soleimani. He is going to do it. Should be happening in the next 20 minutes…19…18…17. Then we get back to the battlefield. How did you do? I don’t know. He disappeared. I don’t know what happened to him. They want us to tell them so that they can leak it to their friends at the corrupt media. You’ve got to say that’s a lot of media, right?”
