US President Donald Trump took to Twitter to respond to a Politico article alleging that Iran was preparing an attack on the US ambassador to South Africa.
“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. 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!” Trump tweeted.
Iran has denied the allegations in the aforementioned Politico article, saying that the US should stop using the worn-out and outdated methods of American propaganda in the international arena.
