President Trump took to Twitter late Monday to issue a stern warning to Iran that an assassination attempt or attack against the U.S. in retaliation of the airstrike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani earlier this year will be met with a counterattack that “will be 1,000 times greater in magnitude.”
Trump cited recent reports that claim Tehran is considering an assassination attempt on Lana Marks, the United States’ ambassador to South Africa. U.S. officials have been aware of threats against the ambassador since the spring, but intelligence suggests those threats have become more specific in recent weeks.
“News of the plot comes as Iran continues to seek ways to retaliate for Trump’s decision to kill a powerful Iranian general earlier this year…If carried out, it could dramatically ratchet up already serious tensions between the U.S. and Iran” https://t.co/LA8MBIko1m
