Biden: Trump ‘Flat-Out Lied’ About Soleimani


Former Vice President Joe Biden accused President at Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential debate of “flat-out” lying about the justification for killing Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

“What’s happened is, now that he’s gone ahead, the president, and started this whole process moving,” Biden said. “Quite frankly, I think he’s flat-out lied about saying the reason he went after — the reason he made the strike was because our embassies were about to be bombed.”

Last week, President Trump told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham in an exclusive interview that the imminent threat from Iran that provoked the United States to kill Soleimani involved planned attacks on four U.S. embassies.
