Democrats and their allies in the media have been hammering Trump over the airstrike that killed Qassem Soleimani.
They have been determined to turn this into a negative for the president.
Unfortunately for them, it’s not working. A recent poll found that most Americans are on Trump’s side.
The Daily Wire reports:
More Americans Side With Trump On Soleimani Strike: Poll
A new survey from progressive outlet HuffPost found that more Americans agree with President Trump’s decision to take out Iran’s top military leader than disagree with him.
The new HuffPost-YouGov survey found that a plurality of Americans, including nearly half of registered voters, approve of Trump ordering a strategic airstrike on General Qassem Soleimani, head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.
The poll, which gauged the opinions of 1,000 U.S. adults between Jan. 3 and Jan. 5, found that 43 percent of respondents approve of Trump’s order to kill Soleimani, including 30 percent who say they “strongly” approve of it and 13 percent who say they “somewhat” approve.
A slightly lower number, 38 percent, disapprove of the order, with 26 percent saying they strongly disapprove and 12 percent saying they somewhat disapprove. Slightly less than a fifth, 19 percent, say they are unsure.
The split is similar among registered voters: 47 percent approve (35 percent strongly, 12 somewhat) and 42 percent disapprove (30 percent strongly, 12 percent somewhat), while 12 percent are unsure.
The American people can see what’s happening here.
Trump’s direct attack on Quds Force commander Soleimani was both morally righteous and strategically brilliant—so outside the box that it makes US reprisals terrifying to the regime.

Dear CNN viewers:
Everything they told you is a lie.
Trump is not starting WWIII.
Soleimani was a terrorist.
Obama sold out America to Iran.
Trump is trying to fix his mess.
Our president wants peace.
Trump always puts America FIRST.

Every CNN and MSNBC talking head insisted that Trump “miscalculated” by killing Soleimani

Once again, Democrats seem blind to reality.
