Retired Marine General Jim Jones, former President Barack Obama’s National Security Adviser, praised President Donald Trump in an interview this week for killing Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani, saying that the decision was “absolutely correct” while essentially adding that the president should not listen to Democrats on this issue.
“I think what the administration did in the Soleimani case is absolutely correct,” Jones said on Sunday at an Atlantic Council event. “I think it’s the right thing to do.”
A reporter asked Jones, “Do you wish that you had done it in your time in government?”
