The White House revealed they are concerned that Iran is plotting assassination attempts against former Trump administration officials.
White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan suspects that Iran is out for blood, especially with the recent implementation of sanctions against former Trump officials.
Sullivan said on Sunday that, “Make no mistake: the United States of America will protect and defend its citizens/ This includes those serving the United States now and those who formerly served.”
Sullivan’s fears of assassination are based on Iran’s promises of revenge for the death of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps General Qassem Soleimani.
IRGC Quds Force Commander Sardar Esmail Qaani promised that “Wherever it is needed, we will provide for the basis of revenge against the Americans from within their houses and by people by their side without us being present. If wise people in America are found who deal with those who committed the atrocity of assassinating Commander Soleimani, this action will be much less burdensome for America than if the offspring of the Resistance Front, who know no bounds, to themselves go and take this revenge.”
This situation will be something to keep an eye on as any attempt by Iran to harm American citizens could turn into open war very quickly.
