President Trump speaks to supporters in Toledo, Ohio after days of unrest between the US and Iran left impeachment on the back burner. President Trump joined his supporters in the Buckeye State on Thursday night for his first reelection campaign rally of 2020. The president touched on a variety of topics, including recent tensions with Iran for his first reelection campaign rally of 2020 at the Huntington Center in Toledo.
He spoke about how he decided not to alert Congress because his administration worried House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, or other Democrats, could have leaked news of the planned attack and potentially botched the whole operation.
“Here’s a guy who slaughtered and butchered civilians all over, and military, whoever was in his way. We have Bernie and Nancy Pelosi, we have them all saying, ‘How dare you take him out that way. You should get permission from Congress. You should come in and tell us so that we can call up the fake news that’s back there and they can leak it.'” – Donald Trump, 45th President of the United States
