Trump following Iran protests closely, says ‘inspired’ by Iranians’ courage
US President Donald Trump tweeted in Farsi that he is following the ongoing protests in Iran “closely” and that he is “inspired” by the courage of the Iranian people.
“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,” Trump tweeted.
Protests have broken out in the Iranian capital Tehran against the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) following its admission to downing a civilian airplane near Tehran on Wednesday.
