image for Iranian Aytatollah Releases Animation Showing Drone Strike Hitting, Killing Donald Trump

The official website of Iranian Ayatollah Ali Khamenei published an animated video on Wednesday that depicted the assassination of former President Donald Trump.

The video then depicts Iran using a four-wheeled robot and a drone to survey Trump and Pompeo as they play.

It then shifts to a shot of what appears to be a drone operator, who sends a text message in Arabic.

An overhead drone shot then appears to target the former president, and it is implied that the drone operator fires a rocket towards Trump.

Soleimani, a high-ranking Iranian general, was assassinated on January 3, 2020 by an American drone strike on Trump's orders.

In January 2021, just days after he left office, Iranian officials published a picture that showed former President Trump playing golf under the darkened shadow of a drone bomber.

Soleimani's daughter reportedly also described Trump as "defeated, isolated and broken" after he left office, according to Iranian news agency Tasnim. »

The software giant originally discontinued the Xbox One X and digital Xbox One S ahead of the Xbox Series X launch, then quietly stopped manufacturing the Xbox One S at the end of 2020, leaving retailers to sell out their remaining stock.

“To focus on production of Xbox Series X / S, we stopped production for all Xbox One consoles by the end of 2020,” says Cindy Walker, senior director of Xbox console product marketing, in a statement to The Verge.

Speaking just after the launch of the Xbox Series X / S in 2020, Xbox chief Phil Spencer told The Verge that the company had built more Xbox Series X consoles than Series S, but that ultimately the lower price point of the Series S would win out. »
