President Trump Warns Iran Of Retaliation If They Assassinate US Ambassador

President Donald Trump has issued a stark warning to Iran if they go through with an alleged plan to assassinate the US ambassador to South Africa.

Retaliation For Killing Of Soleimani

On Monday, reports emerged that Iran was considering assassinating the US ambassador to South Africa, Lana Marks, as retaliation for the killing of General Qassem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian regime’s Quds Force, in a drone strike earlier this year.

US officials have been aware of a general attack on the ambassador since the spring, but intelligence suggests the threat has become far more specific in recent weeks, according to a government official. The Iranian Embassy in Pretoria is involved in the plot, they told Politico.

Trump: “They’ll Be Hit A Thousand Times Harder”

“According to press reports, Iran may be planning an assassination, or other attack, against the United States in retaliation for the killing of terrorist leader Soleimani, which was carried out for his planning a future attack, murdering U.S. Troops, and the death & suffering caused over so many years,” President Trump wrote on Twitter on Monday.

“Any attack by Iran, in any form, against the United States will be met with an attack on Iran that will be 1,000 times greater in magnitude!” the President concluded, in a threat that should hopefully make the regime reconsider their actions.

The President later repeated this in an interview with Fox News on Tuesday morning.

“We’re all set,” President Trump said. “They’ll be hit a thousand times harder.”

An Extreme Step From Iran

To kill an ambassador to the United States, let alone one on totally foreign soil, is an extreme step for Iran to take, and one that it is right for President Trump to use strong rhetoric against to dissuade them. The diplomatic fallout from such an assassination would be immeasurable, and one we haven’t had in very many years.

Let’s hope cooler heads prevail in Tehran.
