John Leguizamo Rips Trump, Claims “This is what Putin Wants” After Soleimani’s Death

Actor John Leguizamo blasted President Trump after U.S. airstrikes notorious Iranian general Solemani.

Leguizamo replied to a tweet from Richard Engel, who wrote:

Iranians will consider US killing soleimani an act of war. A proxy war could erupt. Likely in iraq, but also a danger in lebanon and israel. This is a big escalation.

Leguizamo added:

This is what putin wants! Chaos in the world! Trump is his puppet but this helps forget about his impeachment!!

 

Carmen Peleaz agreed with Leguizamo and wrote:

Was just telling my sis that. This is all Putin.

However, Leguizamo’s claim does not match up very well with reality.

Per Dailypost, Russia has condemned US airstrikes that killed Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force.

The strike also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of the Iran-backed militia, Popular Mobilization Forces, which recently stormed the US embassy in Baghdad.

Russia called the attack a “reckless step” that risked “regional peace and stability” in the Middle East.

“Such actions do not create, find solutions to complex problems in the Middle East. On the contrary, it will lead to a new round of escalation of tensions in the region,” said Russia’s Foreign Ministry in a statement.

In a separate statement, the ministry noted that Soleimani had “faithfully served and defended the national interests of Iran” and expressed condolences to the Iranian people over the commander’s death.

Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed the attack with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron by phone, with both sides agreeing “this action might seriously escalate tensions in the region.”
