“We responded with strength, not fear,” former U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley wrote Friday, praising President Donald Trump’s authorization of an airstrike that killed a top Iranian military commander.

Late Thursday night, following the news that a U.S. airstrike had killed Senior Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani, Haley commented on Twitter that she is proud of Trump’s strength and decision to take appropriate action against “an arch terrorist with American blood on his hands”:

“Qassem Soleimani was an arch terrorist with American blood on his hands.  His demise should be applauded by all who seek peace and justice.  Proud of President Trump for doing the strong and right thing. @realDonaldTrump”

On Friday, Haley tweeted video of a recent interview in which she gave, in which she warned Iran that the U.S. was not going to react with fear if threatened or attacked:

“Recently I spoke on the Iranian threats in the region. The Iranian regime had a choice to make. Their choice was to plan for another attack. We responded with strength, not fear.”
