Iran official’s tweet listing Donald Trump’s empire hints at revenge attack

An Iran official tweeted a list of Donald Trump’s property empire – hinting at possible revenge attacks.

Iranian adviser, Hasameddin Ashena tweeted a link to a Forbes article listing all properties owned by the US President, a tweet which hints at Iran’s possible plans to target Trump’s $3.1 billion real estate empire – following Friday’s airstrike in Baghdad which killed General Qassem Soleimani.

The list of Trump’s properties includes Trump Tower and 40 Wall Street in New York, Trump International hotels in Washington, Las Vegas and Chicago, golf courses and two private airplanes he has left from his disastrous Trump airline.

Revolutionary Guards Aerospace Force chief, Amir Ali Hajizadeh said: “Even killing Trump is not a sufficient vengeance, and the only thing that can pay for the blood of martyr Soleimani is completely expelling America from the region.”

The Iraqi parliament backed a recommendation on Sunday by the prime minister for all foreign troops to be ordered out of Iraq after Soleimani’s death united rival Iraqi Shi’ite leaders, even those opposed to Iranian influence.

“Trump will see the result of this adventurism in the region,” Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said, citing the Iraqi vote.

Tehran has often said it would choose the time and place of any retaliation in past standoffs with Washington.

At Soleimani’s funeral today, crowds chanted “Death to America”. One poster held by a mourner read: “It is our right to seek a harsh revenge,” echoing comments by Iranian military and political leaders.

Donald Trump has said the US military had drawn up a list of 52 targets, the same number of US Embassy hostages held for 444 days after the Iranian revolution, that he said would be hit if Americans or US assets were attacked. He said the targets included cultural sites, comments that have drawn criticism from his US political opponents.

Zeinab Soleimani, the commander’s daughter, told mourners at her dad’s funeral: “America and Zionism should know that my father’s martyrdom will lead to awakening…in the resistance front and bring about a dark day for them and flatten their homes.”
