One statement from Obama’s past just came back to destroy the Democrat Party on a top issue
After the election of President Trump, the Democrat Party is more extreme than ever.
Even Barack Obama isn’t extreme enough for them at this point.
And one statement from Obama’s past just came back to destroy the Democrat Party on a top issue.
The Left loves to worship Barack Obama while ignoring that his policies are actually far more moderate than the ones held by today’s major players in the party.
That’s saying a lot, considering how extreme Obama was compared to previous Democrats.
And following the killing of Iranian terrorist Qassem Soleimani, Obama’s previous statements are making things difficult for them.
In 2011, the Obama administration came out with a statement sanctioning him for his role in a foiled terrorist attack on Washington, D.C.
Breitbart News reports:
Qassem Soleimani, the Iranian general killed by U.S. forces at the direction of President Donald Trump on Thursday evening, was sanctioned by the Obama administration in 2011 for his role in a foiled terror attack on Washington, DC.
Soleimani, leader of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds force, helped plot the attack on a popular restaurant in the nation’s capital, where the target was to be the Saudi ambassador to the U.S.
As the U.S. Treasury explained in announcing the sanctions against Soleimani and four others in 2011:
“The U.S. Department of the Treasury today announced the designation of five individuals, including four senior Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Qods Force (IRGC-QF) officers connected to a plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the United States Adel Al-Jubeir, while he was in the United States and to carry out follow-on attacks against other countries’ interests inside the United States and in another country. As part of today’s action, Treasury also designated the individual responsible for arranging the assassination plot on behalf of the IRGC-QF.”
The Left is downplaying his terrorism by simply labeling him an Iranian General, along with outright defending his character.
But Obama’s designation makes it clear they are only doing that in order to attack President Trump.
And American voters are seeing through it, and will make their opinions known at the ballot box come November.
