Assassinated Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani’s daughter has condemned outgoing US President Donald Trump and incoming President-elect Joe Biden in equal terms.
“There’s no difference between Biden and Trump, they are the same guy,” Zaynab Soleimani said during an interview on Wednesday with RT’s “Going Underground”. “They are following the same policy, there is no difference between them. Trump ordered the killing of my father, but Biden supported that, so there’s no difference.”
In a statement tweeted on January 2, Biden said “no American will mourn Qassem Soleimani’s passing. He deserved to be brought to justice for his crimes against American troops and thousands of innocents throughout the region. He supported terror and sowed chaos.”
In the opening days of 2020, Soleimani was killed by a US drone strike outside Baghdad International Airport. Soleimani was traveling with a host of leading figures from Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), including deputy commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.
