“No one is shedding any tears over the death of Iranian terrorist Qassem Soleimani, and no one is questioning whether he deserved this fate. The question is whether the Trump administration has weighed the significant ramifications of this action and whether President Trump has a clear strategy for what comes next,” Jewish Democratic Council of America Executive Director Halie Soifer said in a statement. “For three years, President Trump has undermined America’s international alliances, diminished U.S. credibility, and weakened our diplomatic corps. Having eroded these pillars of our national security, we are deeply concerned that the Trump administration is simply incapable of handling a crisis of this magnitude and gravity.”
