Biden, Bernie, Warren Respond to Killing of Soleimani By Attacking Trump

2020 candidate Joe Biden has released a statement on the killing of Soleimani.

Biden acknowledges Soleimani “deserved to be brought to justice” but then says Trump “tossed a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox.”

Biden then attacks Trump directly, saying he fears “this administration has not demonstrated at any turn the discipline or long-term vision necessary – and the stakes could not be higher.”

Biden’s tweet:

2020 candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren released similar statements.

Bernie tweeted:

When I voted against the war in Iraq in 2002, I feared it would lead to greater destabilization of the region. That fear unfortunately turned out to be true.

The U.S. has lost approximately 4,500 brave troops, tens of thousands have been wounded, and we’ve spent trillions.

Trump’s dangerous escalation brings us closer to another disastrous war in the Middle East that could cost countless lives and trillions more dollars.

Warren tweeted:

Soleimani was a murderer, responsible for the deaths of thousands, including hundreds of Americans. But this reckless move escalates the situation with Iran and increases the likelihood of more deaths and new Middle East conflict. Our priority must be to avoid another costly war.
