President Trump on Monday warned Iranian leaders that any assassination attempt or other attack against the United States in retaliation for the killing of terror leader Qassem Soleimani would be met with a far worse response.

“According to press reports, Iran may be planning an assassination, or other attack, against the United States in retaliation for the killing of terrorist leader Soleimani, which was carried out for his planning a future attack, murdering U.S. Troops, and the death & suffering caused over so many years," the president tweeted. "Any attack by Iran, in any form, against the United States will be met with an attack on Iran that will be 1,000 times greater in magnitude!”

According to reports, Iran is eying Lana Marks, the U.S. ambassador to South Africa. While those reports have been circulating since the spring, intelligence has become more specific recently, with the Iranian Embassy in Pretoria reportedly involved in the plot.
