The Iranian regime once again blocked Internet access on Monday in an effort to control mass protests after the ayatollah’s troops shot down a civilian airliner and attempted to cover up the crime.

President Donald Trump goaded Tehran for its habit of shutting down the Internet during popular uprisings in the same Sunday tweet where he told them, “DO NOT KILL YOUR PROTESTERS”[.]

The article goes on to state the following:

According to analysts at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, the Farsi language version of President Trump’s message of support for the Iranian people on Saturday became the “most-liked Persian tweet in the history of Twitter,” which might help explain the regime’s eagerness to intensify Internet shutdowns.

Trump tweeted:

“To the leaders of Iran – DO NOT KILL YOUR PROTESTERS. Thousands have already been killed or imprisoned by you, and the World is watching. More importantly, the USA is watching. Turn your internet back on and let reporters roam free! Stop the killing of your great Iranian people!”

and

“To the brave, long-suffering people of Iran: I’ve stood with you since the beginning of my Presidency, and my Administration will continue to stand with you. We are following your protests closely, and are inspired by your courage.”
