Congressman shares photoshopped image of Obama shaking hands with president of Iran


On Friday, one of Iran's most powerful military commanders, General Qasem Soleimani, was killed in a US airstrike ordered by President Donald Trump. Soleimani, head of Iran's elite Quds Force, was killed alongside several others at Baghdad airport. 

Unsurprisingly, the move has sparked some tensions. Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that "severe revenge awaits the criminals" behind the attack. While President Donald Trump seemed to respond to the event by tweeting a picture of the US flag.  

In a statement, the Pentagon said that Soleimani "was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region."
