‘More People at Mar-a-Lago Heard About the Iran Operation Than People in the United States Congress’ Pete Buttigieg: WATCH

Democratic Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg spoke to Jake Tapper on CNN’s State of the Union this morning about President Trump’s order to kill Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani.

Some highlights:

Tapper: Do you believe it was an assassination?

Buttigieg: I’m not interested in terminology I’m interested in the consequences and I’m interested in the process. Why wasn’t Congress consulted? It seems like more people at Mar-a-Lago heard about this than people in the United States Congress.

Watch the full clip below.

Buttigieg later tweeted: “We still don’t know much about the president’s decision-making on Suleimani. But we do know that military efforts to defeat ISIS are now on hold. We know that Iraq’s parliament voted to expel U.S. troops. We know that our embassy in Iraq remains under fire. We are not safer.”
