9 horrified reactions to Trump’s jingoistic Twitter rant

Donald Trump got 2020 off to a disturbing start by ordering, without the backing of Congress, an air strike on Iran, which killed General Qasem Soleimani, head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ Quds Force and others in his convoy.

Iran immediately vowed revenge on the US, while its ally Iraq voted to expel all foreign troops.

In a climate in which US and UK flags are being burnt on the streets of Iran, and its politicians chanted “Death to America” in parliament, Trump decided to pour petrol onto the fire by tweeting a string of threats, including these.

Although the MAGA brigade loved the jingoistic language, far more people failed to detect any semblance of wisdom in the messages.
