President Trump on Wednesday expressed his “respect” for the Iranians participating in protests throughout the country, adding that the U.S. will provide “great support” to them “at the appropriate time.”
“Such respect for the people of Iran as they try to take back their corrupt government,” Trump said. “You will see great support from the United States at the appropriate time!”
Trump and other administration officials, including U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, have voiced support for peaceful protesters demonstrating against the Iranian government.
Trump has warned Iran that the U.S. is monitoring for potential human rights violations as demonstrations continue.
