According to FOX News, in response to the drone strike that killed Iranian military General Qassem Soleimani, Iran has issued an $80 million bounty for Donald Trump’s head and threatened to attack the White House during open session of Iran parliament on Sunday.
Iranian government officials and supporters of General Qassem Soleimani have vowed revenge for the killing, but Trump tweeted that if any strike is made on any American citizen or U.S. target, the United States would strike back in a “disproportionate manner.”
The eulogist at the funeral procession for General Qassem Soleimani placed an $80 million bounty on President Donald Trump’s head on live state TV, while Iranian citizens raised the red “flags of revenge” at the Jamkaran Mosque.
While the people of Iran are urged to put up a dollar each in order to fulfill the bounty, the Iranian government is vowing that they are no longer abiding by the nuclear agreement made with the U.S. in 2015. A statement issued by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s administration said the country will not observe limitations on its enrichment, the amount of stockpiled enriched uranium as well as research and development in its nuclear activities.
After Sunday’s funeral marches in Iraq, where thousands of people gathered, Soleimani’s body was flown to the city of Ahvaz in southwest Iran. Video from the scene showed a casket wrapped in an Iranian flag being unloaded from a plane as a military band played and the crowd angrily chanted “Death to America.”
