Former US ambassador Nikki Haley just called the Democrat tiptoeing around of Soleimani’s status as terrorist what it is, truly, during an appearance on Hannity.
Haley pointed out that members of other countries, from China to Russia, to the Gulf, are not “standing up for Iran” before making it clear who is,
“The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership and our Democrat presidential candidates. No one else in the world, because they knew that his man had evil veins.”

If you want to see first-hand this "mourning of Soleimani" Haley is referring to, watch this disturbing compilation of the reverent names mainstream media has referred to the terrorist responsible for the deaths of many Americans and American allies (names include "genius" "inspirational military leader" and "personally incredibly brave"):
USA Today said the following on Haley's calling out of Democrats:
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley praised President Donald Trump for ordering the drone strike that killed Iran's top general last week and took criticism for claiming that the only ones outside of the regime who are upset about his death are Trump's domestic political opponents.
"I think the president showed great decisiveness, great resolve," Haley told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday night.
Gen. Qasem Soleimani, the leader of Iran's elite Quds Force, was killed on a road near the Baghdad airport Friday. The strike that killed Soleimani came after the U.S. blamed Iran for an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq by a mob of demonstrators belonging to Shiite militias.
The U.S. said one of those Iran-backed militias was responsible for a rocket attack that killed an American contractor and killed at least two dozen of its fighters in airstrikes at the end of December.
"What the president did left the Iranian regime completely flat-footed," Haley said. "They did not see this coming. They thought they could continue to do their multiple strikes. But when it got to the lives of Americans, the president is never going to allow that to happen." Soleimani led Iran's involvement in proxy wars in the Muslim world, including the civil wars in Syria and Yemen. He supported militias throughout the Middle East that are loyal to Tehran. And he oversaw the training of Shiite Iraqi militants to kill U.S. troops, teaching them how to make deadly roadside bombs.
The U.S. estimates that Soleimani and the Iran Revolutionary Guard were responsible for killing more than 600 American service members in Iraq following the 2003 invasion.
Haley said Soleimani's killing was "a long time coming" and that left Iran's leaders "shaking in their boots."
"You don't see anyone standing up for Iran. You're not hearing any of the Gulf members. You're not hearing China. You're not hearing Russia," Haley said.
"The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership, and our Democrat presidential candidates."
The Guardian also said:
Nikki Haley, formerly ambassador to the United Nations and in many eyes a futureRepublican presidential candidate, has claimed the “only” people “mourning the loss” of the Iranian general Qassem Suleimani, killed by a US airstrike last week, are “Democrat leadership and our Democrat presidential candidates”.
“You don’t see anyone standing up for Iran,” Haley told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday night. “You’re not hearing any of the Gulf [states], you’re not hearing China, you’re not hearing Russia. The only ones that are mourning the loss of Suleimani are Democrat leadership and our Democrat presidential candidates.”
The assassination of Suleimani, ordered by Donald Trump, has fueled a crisis in US relations with Iran and the Middle East in general. Tehran has promised to retaliate.
Democrats in the race for the presidential nomination and congressional leadership have reacted cautiously to the Suleimani strike, making clear their belief the general was responsible for malign activity by Iran and American deaths but criticising the president’s decision-making.
Congress was not notified in advance of the strike in Baghdad and the notification sent subsequently, under the War Powers Act of 1973, was classified.
