President Trump on Friday afternoon offered remarks on the airstrike that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani earlier in the day, declaring that Soleimani's "reign of terror" had come to an end.

Trump, who described Soleimani as "the number one terrorist anywhere in the world," said the U.S. military "executed a flawless precision strike" against the general.

The president claimed Soleimani was planning "imminent and sinister attacks" on American citizens prior to his killing.

"Today, we remember and honor the victims of Soleimani's many atrocities, and we take comfort in knowing that his reign of terror is over," Trump said.
