 Trump was right with Suleimani though. He destroyed an important terrorist threat to our national security.

CNN begs to differ...

Trump’s decision to kill Soleimani is beginning to look like a reckless gamble

Quote

Already the killing of Soleimani precipitated Iran to announce on Sunday that it was suspending commitments it made in its 2015 nuclear agreement that capped its centrifuge allowance.

Quote

Inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency had repeatedly found that Iran was adhering to that agreement.

Prepare to learn something....

Quote

Now there is the prospect that the mullahs who run Iran could try to seek a nuclear weapon

Wow, right out of the blue, and all thanks to Trump. 

If he never did that, Iran never would have considered getting nukes. Now they are.

Now ya know, Yoshita.

Also on Sunday the Iraqi Parliament set in motion the process to expel American troops from Iraq, which has been a long-term goal of the Iranians. 

The last time that American troops pulled out of Iraq was at the end of 2011 under the Obama administration. Three years later ISIS took over much of Iraq. 

Quote

Trump had a bizarre reaction to the vote by the Iraqi Parliament telling reporters on Sunday; “If they do ask us to leave, if we don’t do it in a very friendly basis, we will charge them sanctions like they’ve never seen before, ever. It’ll make Iranian sanctions look somewhat tame.” Iraq is a US ally that was instrumental in the defeat of ISIS.

Iraq is a US ally. Like Britain, France or Canada. 

Or at least they were.

Orange man BAD!

The Iraqi protests against Iranian influence in Iraq that took place in November have now been replaced by protests against the United States.

Quote

Similarly, recent protests in Iran against the regime have been replaced by protests against the United States.

Quote

Meanwhile Trump has taken to Twitter to threaten war crimes against the Iranians in the form of strikes aimed at Iran’s cultural patrimony; a form of warfare that we associate with ISIS, not the US military.

Quote

Soleimani’s killing was on a menu of options presented to Trump following the killing of a US contractor last month in Iraq that the US government blamed on an Iran-backed Shia militia. The President seized on this most extreme option leaving top Pentagon officials “stunned’ and “flabbergasted,” according to the Times

Now that you have learned so much, just from 1 CNN article, are you suddenly reconsidering?
