President Trump on Tuesday tweeted about the uprisings taking place in Iran, saying the United States is watching.
“The people of Iran are finally acting against the brutal and corrupt Iranian regime. All of the money that President Obama so foolishly gave them went into terrorism and into their “pockets.” The people have little food, big inflation and no human rights,” he tweeted. “The U.S. is watching!”
The Trump administration has publicly stated it supports the right of protesters to demonstrate peacefully against the Iranian government, and the president himself has weighed in on the uprisings several times over the past few days.
On New Year’s Day, he said it’s “time for change,” writing that the Iranian people “have been repressed for many years.”
