President Trump sent out [tweets] in Farsi telling Iranians protesting Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei that he stands behind them.

Protesters in Iran on Saturday called upon Khamenei to step down after the country admitted to shooting down a commercial airliner that contained dozens of Iranian citizens.

The article goes on to state the following:

The demonstration came a day after Iran said it “unintentionally” shot down a Ukrainian airliner and killed all 176 people on board. The crash came just hours after Iran’s military lobbed more than a dozen missiles at bases in Iraq containing U.S. troops.

Trump’s first tweet said, “To the brave and suffering Iranian people: I have stood with you since the beginning of my presidency and my government will continue to stand with you. We are following your protests closely. Your courage is inspiring.”

A second tweet followed. He wrote: “The government of Iran must allow human rights groups to monitor and report facts from the ground on the ongoing protests by the Iranian people. There can not be another massacre of peaceful protesters, nor an internet shutdown. The world is watching.”
