Tehran/Washington: Iran has offered an award of USD 80 million for killing President Donald Trump, who ordered the killing of General Qassem Soleimani. Before making this announcement, one of the Iranian leaders had warned of attacking the White House. The Khamenei regime has warned that Iran can go to any extent to avenge the killing of General Soleimani.
The mortal remains of General Qassem Soleimani were brought to Iran and millions came on the streets on Sunday in the city of Mashhad to bid a final farewell to the slain General. The crowds gathered for the funeral chanted slogans like ‘Death to America’. During the function organised on this occasion, a religious preacher announced this reward of USD 80 million, for President Trump’s head.
The Iranian preacher announced the award to kill President Trump saying, ‘If every Iranian citizen contributes one dollar, the amount sums up to 80 million. This amount will be awarded, on behalf of Iran, to anyone who brings the head of US President Trump, who ordered the killing of General Soleimani, a huge contributor to the Islamic revolution in Iran. Please respond if this is acceptable to all of you.’
