The Iowa caucuses are now less than one month away, and it appears as though the 2020 candidates are all now vying for an angle to come out on top – no matter how salacious that approach might be.
The latest fear mongering out on the campaign trail has come to us from Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is tapping into the fear that many Americans have regarding a possible global conflict.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) suggested in an interview with Cosmopolitan published Thursday Americans should be worried about a World War III scenario.
Jen Ortiz, the magazine’s deputy editor, mentioned Warren’s opposition to the Trump administration’s elimination of Iran’s terror chief Qasem Soleimani during the exchange as well as President Trump’s threat to attack 52 Iranian sites.
“So if Trump moves ahead with ordering this sort of attack, would he be considered a war criminal? And should we be worried about World War III?” she asked.
“Let me start at the end. Yes, we should be worried about war,” Warren stated, conceding Soleimani was a “bad guy” but also referring to him as a “high-ranking Iranian government official.”
A large number of congressional Democrats have been openly questioning President Trump’s timing when it comes to the assassination of Soleimani, particularly as the administration has trouble addressing questions sorrowing the “imminent” threat that Soleimani posed.
Both President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have been unable to adequately explain when and where they believed that Soleimani would attack next, perhaps out of a need to maintain operational security.
