Iran’s murderous regime reportedly set an $80 million bounty on President Trump’s head as retaliation for the killing of terrorist general Qassem Soleimani.
Iran — which is broke as a joke — is comically trying to crowd-source the assassination.
The “bounty” was allegedly announced on Iran television during the state funeral for Soleimani (see below). Is it authentic? It’s hard to say.
The announcement comes shortly after a member of Iran’s Parliament threatened to attack the White House in response to President Trump’s vow to crush Iran if it kills any Americans.
Hanif Jazayeri — who’s with the National Council of Resistance of Iran — alerted BizPac Review about the bounty, which he slammed as “disgraceful.”

The amateurish video begins with a grainy montage of Iranians chanting “Death to America!”
An unidentified speaker starts by quoting Ayatollah Khomeini, who founded the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979, as he once spoke about Muslims banding together against Israel.
“If all the Muslims of the world throw a bucket of water, Israel would be washed away,” the speaker says in the video.
The speaker then urges every Iranian to donate $1 each into a collection pool. If every person did that, he says the pool would top $80 million (Iran’s population is about 81 million).
The speaker says: “If everyone anywhere in the world supports our initiative in Mashhad on behalf of all of Iran’s people — 80 million Iranians — and each puts aside $1, it would equal $80 million. And we would give this $80 million as a gift to anyone who brings the head of the person who ordered the murder of the grand figure of our revolution. Anyone who brings us the head of this yellow-haired lunatic, we would give him $80 million on behalf of the great Iranian nation.”
OMG! Iran’s regime just announced an $80 million bounty for anyone who brings the head of @realDonaldTrump for killing Soleimani.
PS: Iran’s ppl however are overjoyed at Soleimani’s death. As the #IranProtests have shown, they long for an end to the mullahs’ tyranny #FreeIran2020 pic.twitter.com/uB3zOG5EKA

It’s unclear how authentic this crowd-sourced bounty is since the video is sloppy and blurry. For all we know, some troll recorded himself speaking the words and slapped together footage of random crowds to foment hysteria.
It could be authentic — or it could be political propaganda to incite a war. Enemies of the United States would love for America to remain distracted and get financially drained by more conflicts in the Middle East. So everyone should view any “breaking news” with skepticism.
Remember, this is just another normal day in Iran. They’ve been chanting “Death to America” and threatening to kill Americans for decades.

The mainstream media have been hyping a war with Iran in a bid to attack Trump. Keep in mind that the left-wing media and the Washington establishment have been war hawks for decades.
President Trump campaigned in 2016 to extricate the United States from the bloody, expensive, decades-long wars in the Middle East.
If the cash-strapped Iran were able to collect $80 million to give to an assassin to take out Trump, that person would first have to get through the Secret Service and the U.S. military. Good luck with that!
Moreover, it defies credulity that Iran would give anyone $80 million since Iran’s economy has been crippled by U.S. sanctions under President Trump.
Reminder: Iran’s primary source of revenue is oil. If the United States bombed its oil fields, the country would go broke.
After mass hysteria erupts because everyone’s starving, who in Iran would volunteer to assassinate a heavily-guarded U.S. president to avenge the death of a murderous warlord?
Meanwhile, here’s what anti-American leftists are up to today.
