This week, President Donald Trump seemed to put the U.S. on a collision course with Iran — and potentially Russia and China as well — when he ordered the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani via drone strike. General Suleimani had long been considered a terrorist by the U.S. governments, but previous administrations had never concluded that the consequences of his killing him would be worth it. China and Russia, as well as Afghanistan, all have ties to Iran, and killing a top member of their military could cause violent retribution from any of those countries.
Even Democrats who view Suleimani’s death as a net positive are worried that by sidestepping normal protocols and not seeking Congressional authority, much less informing Congress before the airstrike killed Suleimani, that Trump has once again abused the powers of his office. Many are quietly, and not so quietly, implying that Trump’s impending impeachment trial and generally abysmal job approval ratings outside of his base may have been a key motivating factor in the decision to “wag the dog” as it were, and order Suleimani’s assassination.
Among Trump’s most ardent surrogates and defenders however, it has mostly been a positive response to the drone strike. Despite promising to put a stop to endless wars in the Middle East, Trump’s attack on Suleimani may end up starting a new conflagration in the region. However, while Tucker Carlson might have surprised Fox News viewers by criticizing the move, by and large the response from media personalities like Tomi Lahren, Candace Owens, Charlie Kirk, Sean Hannity, and Dan Bongino have been overwhelmingly positive.
It would seem that to his most hardcore and loyal base of commentators, Trump could count on their vocal, outspoken support for a war with Iran. Some may wonder how hard it is to advocate for a war you know you’ll never have to serve in, which is why this publication sought to obtain a list of the right-wing, Pro-Trump media personalities who have signed up to fight in the war with Iran.
Below is the complete list
Below is the complete list of rank and file Trump voters — who are on average 65 years of age and older — who have also signed up to fight and die in Trump’s war:
We will update these lists as more names are found.
