Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has accused the president of possibly starting a war with Iran if the terrorists were to retaliate and target his hotel properties as revenge for the airstrike that took out Islamic military commander Qasem Soleimani.
“Trump needs to immediately divest from his businesses and comply with the emoluments clause. Iran could threaten Trump hotels *worldwide* and he could provoke war over the loss of revenue from skittish guests,” the “Squad” member posted to Twitter on Monday.
“His business interests should not be driving military decisions,” she added.

I find her statement ridiculous. Whether they attack Trump’s properties or they attack other places in the United States, they are still attacking our soil and trying to kill more of our people. They calls for a war, whether we like it or not!
Her take comes after Hesameddin Ashena, a senior aide to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, tweeted a Forbes magazine video featuring Trump properties as well as a quote from Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
“I tell the whole world that if the world wants to stand up to our religion, we will stand up against their whole world,” read the quote.

Of course Democrats have had a field day full of angry fits after Trump ordered the airstrike without first discussing it with them. However, I would be willing to bet money that the only reason the airstrike was successful in taking out the terrorist scumbag is because the Democrats DIDN’T know about it.
“So what if Trump wants war, knows this leads to war and needs the distraction?” Omar tweeted on Thursday. “Real question is, will those with congressional authority step in and stop him? I know I will.”
However, she didn’t give any further details on what the elaborate measures would be.

The strike on the Iranian general has prompted the Islamic regime to vow retaliation and formally announce it will continue violating former President Barack Obama’s nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
In return, President Trump has warned that 52 Iranian sites “will be hit very fast and very hard” if Tehran strikes back at U.S. citizens or assets.
The president tweeted on Saturday, “Let this serve as a WARNING that if Iran strikes any Americans, or American assets, we have targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD. The USA wants no more threats!”
Boom. Don’t mess with the US of A!
