WH Steps In After Petty Psaki Can't Answer Simple Question About Trump's Safety
Iran's 'supreme leader' threatens to assassinate former President Donald J. Trump in retaliation for the death of their military officer, Qasem Soleimani, and Jen Psaki doesn't know if the White House plans to protect him?
Let me reiterate that— The leader of our sworn enemy threatened to assassinate Trump, and the White House Press Secretary isn't sure if the US plans to protect the former President of the United States.
Is this woman for real? Of course, the answer is YES but God forbid Psaki say it.
A reporter asked Psaki during a White House presser if there were plans to protect Trump after the Iran's leader dropped a animated video showing Trump being murdered white playing golf with texts that read: “Soleimani’s murderer and the one who gave the order will pay the price.”
Psaki first tried to dodge the question and dismissed the obvious threat saying that it's not the first time Iran has threatened the US but the reporter pressed again. Psaki claimed she didn't know any 'details'.
The White House corrected the Press Sec and provided the reporter with a response: “The United States will protect and defend its citizens. This includes those serving the United States now and those who formerly served.”
According to The Times of Israel: “The animated video was part of a contest to mark the January 3, 2020, killing of Iran’s Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani, who was slain in an American drone strike in Baghdad.”
According to DailyWire, the propaganda follows a threat made by Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Quds Force (IRGC) Brigadier General Esmaeil Qaani, who said: “We will prepare ground for the hard reveng against the US from within their homes, as we do not need to be present as supervisors everywhere, wherever is necessary we take revenge against Americans by the help of people on their side and within their own homes without our presence.”
JIANG: I have a question about a video that Iran’s Supreme Leader posted on his website that appears to show a robot conducting a drone strike, killing the former president at his Mar-a-Lago golf club. Is the intelligence community assessing this threat and working with former President Trump to offer protection of any kind?
PSAKI: I’m not going to speak to the work of our intelligence community. Obviously, the kind of rhetoric or video from the Supreme Leader is something that we’ve seen — you know, offensive rhetoric and behavior in the past. But I’m not going to speak to more specifics of internal discussions.
JIANG: But are you aware of the video?
PSAKI: I don’t have any more details on it.
