Trump Claims PM Khan Told Him Qasem Soleimani’s Death ‘Single Biggest Thing He Could Remember’

Trump recalled the conversation he had with Imran Khan during his interview with the authors.

According to the two Washington reporters who have written a book on the last months of Trump in the White House, Former US President Donald Trump claimed that the Prime Minister Imran Khan allegedly told him that the killing of Qasem Soleimani was the “single biggest thing I can ever remember happening in my life”.

On the 3rd of January, 2020, Qasem Soleimani was assasinated by a drone strike launched by the United States at Baghdad International Airport that directly killed him while he was on his way to meet Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi in Baghdad.

In ‘I Can Fix It Alone – Donald Trump’s Final Catastrophic Year’, the scenes behind the stage finally begin to unravel the story of his last year in office, written by Phil Rucker and Carol Leonnig, who have both respectively won Pulitzer prizes for their commentaries. In the claims written, according to the authors, Trump, made remarks about Imran Khan during a long interview at Mar-a-Lago, the lavish Florida estate he infamously called “his winter white house.”

Trump recalled the conversation he had with Imran Khan during his interview with the authors.

“I was with Khan of Pakistan. A great athlete. Did you know he was the Mickey Mantle of cricket?” Trump said, “He was a great athlete, handsome guy, and I met with him.”

Trump claimed that PM Imran Khan said the day after Soleimani’s passing: “President, I have been through a lot in my life. I have been a star.” He directly quoted Khan, saying,

“When Soleimani was taken out, it was the single biggest thing I can ever remember happening in my life.”

The authors wrote that Trump told them Soleimani’s killing was “sort of an amazing thing” and he spoke with “awe about this feat more than a year later when he sat down with us at Mar-a-Lago for an interview for this book.”

The authors also then spoke freely about Trump, stating that: “It was typical of him to be an overly dramatic and indiscreet braggart.”

Authors Phil Rucker and Carol Leonnig revealed the flimsy threads that were barely tying Trump’s presidency together and revealed how dysfunctional and utterly debilitating his time in office was, which was enabled by key figures in his inner circle like his family, senior advisors, and generals.

The publishers said that Rucker and Leonnig provided an investigative account of the most crippping year in a presidency that rivaled no other, where the figurehead used the power of the state to aid to his personal motives and longed to crush the opposition in the streets of the country using whatever unethical means necessary.

A notorious example would be how he used the state’s police forces to hinder the protest in wake of the murder of George Floyd, all to inflate his image for the right-wing nationalists before the election.
