The majority of Americans disagree with President Donald Trump’s policies on Iran and say the United States has become less secure after the Pentagon's assassination of Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Qods Force Commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, a new ABC News/Ipsos poll revealed.

RNA - According to the survey, 56 percent of respondents disapprove of Trump’s actions related to the current situation in Iran.

Slightly less, 52 percent of Americans, stated that General Soleimani's assassination made their country less secure, 25 percent of respondents hold the opposite opinion, while another 22 percent believe that the assassination of the Iranian commander did not have any impact on the security in the United States.

The US citizens also voiced their opinion on the possibility of the United States participating in a full-scale war with Iran.

As such, 32 percent of the respondents noted that they were very concerned about such a probability, 41 percent said they were slightly worried, 20 percent were almost not worried and another 7 percent stated that they were not worried at all.

The US administration’s shaky reasoning for General Soleimani’s assassination has earned them plenty of heat. Democrats announced on Wednesday that the Trump administration failed to present evidence supporting the claim that General Soleimani was planning an imminent attack. On Thursday, the US House of Representatives voted in favor of a bill restricting Trump’s ability to wage war on Iran.

General Soleimani was martyred in a targeted assassination attack by US aircraft at Baghdad International Airport last Friday. Pentagon also martyred Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy commander of Iraq's Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), or Hashad al-Shabi, five Iranian, and five Iraqi militaries.

The strike brought the United States and Iran to the brink of war, with Tehran retaliating by launching missiles at military bases in Iraq housing American troops. On Wednesday, Iran fired more than a dozen missiles at two American military bases in Iraq in retaliation for Washington's assassination of Tehran's elite commander, warning of further strikes against the Unted States.

Iranian officials branded the airstrike an “act of international terrorism” and promised retaliation. Iran has time and again warned that it will not be the initiator of any war, but reserves the right to self defense and will give a crushing response to any act of aggression by the United States.
