EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Students 'devastated' and 'disgusted' after Soleimani death

  • Campus Reform went to Georgetown University to ask students about the death of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.
  • Many students disagreed with the decision to kill Soliemani, with some even feeling sympathy for Iranians.

Campus Reform Digital Reporter Eduardo Neret recently went to Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. to ask students to react to the U.S. killing of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani. 

Many students criticized President Donald Trump’s decision to order the strike on Soleimani, who was responsible for hundreds of Americans' deaths.

“I was shocked and kind of...disgusted that Trump had done that..."   

“The United States has a history of violence against non-white people,” one student argued before adding that the U.S. was acting in the 'interest of white supremacy.'"

“I was shocked and kind of...disgusted that Trump had done that,” another student added.

Other students seemed to show sympathy to Iranians over the death of Soleimani. 

“There’s a lot of...sentimental feelings going on and I want to be able to like, empathize with that,” one student said in response to how Iranians feel about his death. 

“I want to be there for the people who I guess loved this general, but also like, I really don’t know how bad he is,” a different student added.
