Earlier this morning, the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei of Iran issued a very clear death threat upon the life of former President Donald Trump. On his Twitter page, in Farsi (the language of Iranians), he stated his intent to exercise revenge for the killing of terrorist mastermind, Qassem Soleimani.
Ominously, the Tweet shows an overhead view of Trump playing golf, with the shadow of a drown about to overtake the President.
This is a clear and direct threat, and three key questions arise:
- Will Twitter suspend the account of Ayatollah Khamenei? (UPDATE: Twitter did suspend the Ayatollah’s account. Good for them.)
- Will the current US administration condemn this obvious threat to the life of a former POTUS?
- How will the liberal left portray this in the media…or will it get mentioned at all?
Death threats, particularly to presidents, are evil enough, but how America responds to this will tell us a great deal more about where our own nation is headed. For starters, I, for one, am committed to pray for our nation, our leaders, our military and our former first family. If forceful condemnation does not come from appropriate governing personnel, I’m quite sure the president’s office, as well as my Senators and Representative will hear from me soon. I encourage you to consider the same. Our nation and state governments need to hear from 75 million voters who don’t see things as they do. Rise up, Christians!
