"Soleimani worked with terrorists to kill and maim hundreds of American servicemembers and he was meeting with the group that attacked our embassy in Baghdad. For decades, he helped plan attacks on innocent people around the world. In the past three months, President Trump and the U.S. military have successfully brought to justice Soleimani and ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
