US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reaffirmed on Saturday the US’s support for the Iranian people following countrywide protests that erupted on Friday causing at least 29 deaths following the Iranian government’s decision to hike the price of gas.
As I said to the people of Iran almost a year and a half ago: The United States is with you. https://t.co/D972wPyLxm— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) November 16, 2019
The U.S. stands with the long-suffering Iranian people as they protest the latest injustice by the corrupt regime in power. We condemn the attempted shutdown of the internet. Let them speak! #IranProtests https://t.co/jmNvFTueBl— Morgan Ortagus (@statedeptspox) November 16, 2019
Why #IranProtests matter: the only way we prevent Iran from supporting terrorism and obtaining nuclear weapons is a change in government, and that can only happen if the Iranian people stand up.— Rep. Will Hurd (@HurdOnTheHill) November 16, 2019
We must amplify their message so this tyrannical regime can be stopped. https://t.co/1z3UHr7Fm2
