The Trump administration denied a visa to Iran’s foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who wanted to attend a United Nations meeting next week. Zarif was expected to condemn the United States for killing terrorist Qassem Soleimani.
Zarif had requested a visa a “few weeks ago” to enter the United States so he could attend a Jan. 9 U.N. Security Council meeting, three diplomatic sources told Foreign Policy.
Iran was awaiting approval on the visa Monday (Jan. 6) when a Trump official called U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres to inform him that Zarif would not be allowed into the United States.
Diplomatic sources said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “in recent months had sought to restrict the ability of Zarif — a skilled debater who has studied in the United States and has extensive contacts with American journalists — to make his case to the American public.”
Pompeo is also limiting Iranian officials’ access to the United States in light of their continued threats to kill Americans.
The visa request was denied due to the escalating threats of retaliation by the Iranian regime amid its ongoing “Death to America” warnings.
Qassem Soleimani’s daughter also issued a death threat against the thousands of American soldiers deployed in the Middle East.
Moreover, Iran announced that it will enrich uranium to build a nuclear bomb in defiance of the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal, which President Trump pulled out of in 2018.
Many say Iran was already enriching uranium even AFTER Obama gave them $1.7 billion in cash in 2016 under the disastrous Iran nuclear deal. Obama also lifted economic sanctions that had crippled Iran financially for decades and unfroze $150 billion in assets.
Mojtaba Zonnouri, a member of Iran’s Parliament, said Iran will attack 124,000 Americans in the name of the 124,000 prophets in Islam. (Sure, keep saying Islam has nothing to do with politics.)
Zonnour said: “If they want to hit 52 sites of ours, we will hit a number of U.S. targets that will be as many as the number of the verses (6,236) of the Holy Quran. We will target 124,000 of them. That equals the number of 124,000 prophets [in Islam].”
Mojtaba Zonnouri was reacting to President Trump’s tweet, where he threatened to target 52 Iranian sites if Iran’s terrorist regime kills any more Americans.
Fox News host Pete Hegseth — a decorated Army veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan — said all the manufactured media outrage over Trump’s tweet is so stupid.
“Soleimani was a terrorist who has killed over 600 [Americans], at least,” Hegseth said on The Five. “He has American blood on their hands. Men and women I served with on the battlefield — we know he had intentions in going to Baghdad…to kill more Americans.”
Hegseth continued: “It’s disgusting the amount of hatred they have for this President. Their inability to step back for one moment and realize the world is a better place when a terrorist like Soleimani is dead [is pathetic].”
Compare the grief that the leftist mainstream media give President Trump for killing a mass murderer versus the boot-licking praise it showered on Barack Obama for killing Osama bin Laden.
Flashback: In May 2019, General Hossein Salami — the head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard — mocked the 9/11 tragedy to insult the United States and President Trump.
“The [US political] system has a huge body, but suffers from osteoporosis,” Salami said. “In fact, the U.S. is like the World Trade Building, that collapses with a sudden hit.”
Reminder: Do you know who else trivializes 9/11? Democrat Ilhan Omar. Birds of a sharia feather flock together.
