It was the most detailed report that Trump gave about the drone strike, which received criticism from some U.S. lawmakers because neither the president nor his advisers provided public information in support of their statements that Soleimani posed an "imminent" threat to Americans in the region.
"I said, 'Listen, how much of this s**t do we have to listen to, right?'" Trump said to applause from the donor crowd.
President Donald Trump recounted the minutes leading up to the deadly U.S. strike on top Iranian leader Qassem Soleimani during remarks to GOP donors at his Florida resort on Friday night, according to CNN.
"They're together sir", Trump said he was told. In this new context, we are clearly meant to understand that if Trump didn't like what he said, it might easily be a reason for him to be killed.
On January 5, the Iraqi parliament passed a resolution calling on the government to expel the US-led worldwide coalition in Iraq, saying the deadly air strike near Baghdad's global airport two days earlier had been an unacceptable breach of Iraqi sovereignty. "How much are we going to listen to?" They are in an armored vehicle.

Claims of an "imminent threat", true or not, are always made by the United States military after an attack because it is one of very few legal pretexts established for carrying out an otherwise aggressive attack.
In the audio from Florida, CNN reported, "Trump did not describe an "imminent threat" but "described Suleimani as a "noted terrorist" who "was down on our list". Sir, they have about a minute to live, sir.
He replaced the Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, who was assassinated on January 3 by a USA airstrike in Iraq. "30 seconds. 10, 9, 8...", "Then suddenly - boom", "no more, sir".
Trump claimed erroneously that Soleimani was meeting "the head of Hezbollah" (the Iran-backed Lebanese militant group is separate from group led by Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis).
Trump proceeded to describe the details of watching the mission unfold from the White House Situation Room - the story included multiple instances in which people called him "sir" - making himself the hero of the narrative.
