Trump tweets: US is watching Iran protests closely for human rights violations
United States President Donald Trump tweeted on Sunday expressing his support of the Iranian protests and saying that the US is watching closely for any human rights violations.
Big protests in Iran. The people are finally getting wise as to how their money and wealth is being stolen and squandered on terrorism. Looks like they will not take it any longer. The USA is watching very closely for human rights violations!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 31, 2017
Trump has been tweeting his support for an ongoing popular uprising across Iran and shared a video of his United Nations speech earlier this year to make his point.
“The entire world understands that the good people of Iran want change, and, other than the vast military power of the United States, that Iran’s people are what their leaders fear the most,” Trump tweeted.

He also added in his video which showed his UN speech: “That is what causes the regime to restrict internet access, tear down satellite dishes, shoot unarmed student protesters and imprison political reformers”.
The Iranian government should respect its people’s right to protest, Trump tweeted earlier on Saturday in response to anti-government protests rallies across Iran in recent days.
Oppressive regimes cannot endure forever, and the day will come when the Iranian people will face a choice. The world is watching! pic.twitter.com/kvv1uAqcZ9— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 30, 2017
“Many reports of peaceful protests by Iranian citizens fed up with regime’s corruption & its squandering of the nation’s wealth to fund terrorism abroad.
