White House Press Secretary Psaki says US rejects Iran’s threats to Trump on anniversary of Soleimani’s assassination

WASHINGTON, D.C. — On the anniversary of the U.S. targeted assassination of Iranian Quds Force Commander Qassim Soleimani, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stressed the Biden Administration’s rejection of Iranian threats to former President Donald Trump.

In a statement, Psaki declared that Iranian threats towards officials of the previous U.S. Administration are unacceptable and stressed that Washington will confront any Iranian provocations or threats against any former officials, despite some contentious issues between the U.S. Administrations.

Earlier, Iran announced imposing sanctions on 50 U.S. citizens, whom Tehran considers connected to the U.S. operation that led to killing the high-ranking Iranian Commander of the Quds Force Qassim Soleimani in Iraq in 2020.
