(Liberty Bell) – Mohammad Javad Zarif, the Iranian Foreign Minister who was headed to a United Nations meeting this week to condemn the Trump administration for killing their top terrorist, Qassem Soleimani, is going to have some trouble getting into the country now.
Trump just denied his visa.
According to three diplomatic sources who spoke with Foreign Policy, Zarif had requested a visa “a few weeks ago” to enter the United States so he could attend the January 9th U.N. Security Council meeting.
Iran was awaiting approval from the visa on Monday (January 6th) when a Trump official called UN Secretary-General António Guterres to inform him that Zarif would not be allowed into the United States.
According to diplomatic sources, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “in recent months had sought to restrict the ability of Zarif — a skilled debater who has studied in the United States and has extensive contacts with American journalists — to make his case to the American public.”
Pompeo is also limiting Iranian official’s access to the United States considering their, oh I don’t know, constant threats to kill American citizens.
The visa request was died based on the escalating threats of retaliation on the part of the Iranian regime and their louder cries of “Death to America.”
The daughter of the slain terrorist mastermind, Qassem Soleimani, also issued a death threat against the thousands of American soldiers who are deployed in the region under Iran’s eye.
Qassem Soleimani's daughter made a public death threat against the thousands of American soldiers deployed in the Middle East.

Biz Pac Review notes:
Moreover, Iran announced that it will enrich uranium to build a nuclear bomb in defiance of the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal, which President Trump pulled out of in 2018.
Many say Iran was already enriching uranium even AFTER Obama gave them $1.7 billion in cash in 2016 under the disastrous Iran nuclear deal. Obama also lifted economic sanctions that had crippled Iran financially for decades and unfroze $150 billion in assets.
Mojtaba Zonnouri, a member of Iran’s Parliament, said Iran will attack 124,000 Americans in the name of the 124,000 prophets in Islam. (Sure, keep saying Islam has nothing to do with politics.)
Zonnour said: “If they want to hit 52 sites of ours, we will hit a number of U.S. targets that will be as many as the number of the verses (6,236) of the Holy Quran. We will target 124,000 of them. That equals the number of 124,000 prophets [in Islam].”
Mojtaba Zonnouri was reacting to President Trump’s tweet, where he threatened to target 52 Iranian sites if Iran’s terrorist regime kills any more Americans.
Fox News host Pete Hegseth — a decorated Army veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan — said all the manufactured media outrage over Trump’s tweet is so stupid.
“Soleimani was a terrorist who has killed over 600 [Americans], at least,” Hegseth said on The Five. “He has American blood on their hands. Men and women I served with on the battlefield — we know he had intentions in going to Baghdad…to kill more Americans.”
Hegseth continued: “It’s disgusting the amount of hatred they have for this President. Their inability to step back for one moment and realize the world is a better place when a terrorist like Soleimani is dead [is pathetic].”
Compare the grief that the leftist mainstream media give President Trump for killing a mass murderer versus the boot-licking praise it showered on Barack Obama for killing Osama bin Laden.
