Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley defended her claim that Democrats are the only ones mourning the loss of Iranian General and terrorist Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in an airstrike last week.

Haley, who was previously the governor of South Carolina, argued that Democrats in Congress and those vying for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination were mourning Soleimani’s death during a Monday night appearance on Hannity.

“The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership and our Democrat presidential candidates,” she said on the show. “No one else in the world, because they knew that this man had evil veins. They knew what he was capable of, and they saw the destruction and the lives lost based from his hands.”

Following backlash from the political left, Haley’s office doubled down on the accusation in a statement.

“It doesn’t have to be literally crying over the casket like Ayatollah Khamenei,” the statement said. “Leading Democrats are aggressively arguing that we would be better off if Qassem Soleimani was still alive today. That is effectively mourning his death.”
