President Donald Trump discussed the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani and the latest impeachment developments during an Oval Office photo op Tuesday with the Prime Minister of Greece.
"In our case it was retaliation," Trump said about the killing of Soleimani. "He was a monster. And he's no longer a monster. He's dead."
"They’re allowed to kill our people they’re allowed to maim our people, they’re allowed to blow up everything that we have and there’s nothing that stops them. And we are, according to various laws, supposed to be very careful with their cultural heritage," he said.
"And you know? If that’s what the law is – I like to obey the law. But think of it, they kill our people, they blow up our people, but then we have to be very gentle with [their] cultural institutions," Trump said.
"But I’m okay with it. It’s okay with me," he added.
