President Donald Trump refused to apologize for the Jan. 2 death of top Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani during a Tuesday White House press conference.

“We saved a lot of lives by terminating his life,” the president told the press. “A lot of lives were saved.”


“He was traveling with the head of Hezbollah. They weren’t there to discuss a vacation,” Trump said. “They weren’t there to go to a nice resort someplace in Baghdad. They were there to discuss bad business.”
