According to USA Today, last week President Donald Trump ordered an airstrike that killed Gen. Qasem Soleiman, the leader of the elite Quds Force. According to administrative officials, Soleiman was planning attacks against Americans in the Middle East. Because Soleiman presented an imminent threat, Trump ordered the air strike. Some Democrats are questioning if this was necessary and if Trump is ready for potential consequences. However, Trump said that if Iran were to retaliate, he has prepared attacks against important Iranian targets. While Trump may have acted too quickly, he was able to save many Americans from a potential attack.
