An adviser to Iranian president Hassan Rouhani last night dropped a chilling hint of an attack on Donald Trump‘s property empire in revenge for the death of military commander Qassem Soleimani.
Hesameddin Ashena shared a link to a Forbes article listing all of Trump’s properties in New York, his hotels and resorts across America and golf courses in the US and Britain.
The list included the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, where the president was staying when he ordered the hit on Soleimani, as well as the Trump International Hotels in Washington and Las Vegas and his New York tower with its Fifth Avenue entrance.
Iran has already threatened the White House and the Rouhani adviser declared yesterday that Tehran’s ‘sole problem is Trump’ rather than the American people – dropping another hint of a direct reprisal against him.
Tehran has sworn revenge for Soleimani’s death and yesterday announced it was abandoning its remaining nuclear limits under the 2015 deal.
Today Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei wept over Soleimani’s coffin as hundreds of thousands joined a funeral march in Tehran.
Speaking to the crowds, the military commander’s daughter Zeinab declared that ‘families of U.S. soldiers in the Middle East will spend their days waiting for the death of their children’.
Trump has threatened his own retaliation if Iran hits US targets, warning of a ‘disproportionate response’ including cultural sites.
Today the president vowed in a capital-letters tweet that ‘IRAN WILL NEVER HAVE A NUCLEAR WEAPON’ despite Tehran’s latest move away from the nuclear deal.
