Bill Hagerty Issues Statement After Iran Issues Arrest Warrant for Donald Trump


U.S. Senate candidate Bill Hagerty this week released a statement after Iran issued an arrest warrant for U.S. President Donald Trump for taking out the top Iranian general and known terrorist Qasem Soleimani.

“Soleimani was a terrorist with the blood of Americans on his hands. Thanks to President Trump’s decisive leadership, the world is a much safer place because Soleimani is dead,” Hagerty said in the press release.

“Iran’s issuing of the arrest warrant against President Trump and the men and women who fought to eliminate Soleimani is nothing but a political stunt – in an attempt to distract from Soleimani’s strong ties to radical Islamic terrorism. If Joe Biden were president, Qasem Soleimani would still be plotting to kill Americans. Strong leadership means standing up to radical Islamic terrorism and that’s exactly what President Trump has done. As your Senator, I will work side by side with him and never stop fighting to defeat radical Islamic terrorism.”

As The Tennessee Star reported this week, Hagerty criticized U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Roberts after he joined the liberal justices in overturning Louisiana’s law “requiring doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.”

“John Roberts got it wrong again. Instead of protecting the unborn and ensuring the safety of women, yet again it appears that Chief Justice Roberts made a politically-calculated decision and sided with the liberals,” Hagerty said Monday.

“This ruling, along with the recent decision to uphold Obama’s DACA program, is a strong reminder as to how important it is to keep the Republican Senate majority and re-elect President Trump for four more years so that we can put strict constitutionalists on the bench. Joe Biden and a Democrat Senate majority would confirm liberal, activist justices who will legislate from the bench. We need more constitutionalist justices and judges on the federal bench. As your next Senator, I’ll work with President Trump to confirm justices who respect the Constitution and the rule of law.”

Abortion opponents vented their disappointment and fury on Monday after the Supreme Court issued a 5-4 decision to strike down a Louisiana law that would have curbed abortion access.
