Iran Issues Arrest Warrant For President Trump


Iran is posting an arrest warrant for President Trump over the killing of General Qassem Soleimani. As you might recall, Soleimani was killed in a U.S. airport attack in Iraq in January, an attack that was authorized by Trump.

Now, the President isn’t alone – arrest warrants have also been issued for more than 30 other Americans who were involved in plotting or carrying out the attack. The Iranian state news agency FARS called the killing an act of "terror."

Brian Hook, America’s envoy to Iran described the move as a "propaganda stunt” and it would seem that Interpol would be inclined to agree. Iran wants the organization to assist in the ‘apprehension,’ but Interpol has declined saying in a statement its constitution forbids it to undertake "any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character.”
