Trump: Iranian protesters will get 'great support' from US 'at the appropriate time'

Source: The Hill




President Trump on Wednesday expressed his “respect” for the Iranians participating in protests throughout the country, adding that the U.S. will provide “great support” to them “at the appropriate time.”




Trump and other administration officials, including U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley, have voiced support for peaceful protesters demonstrating against the Iranian government.

Trump has warned Iran that the U.S. is monitoring potential human rights violations as demonstrations continue.

Protests began last week over economic concerns, reports say, but have shifted to anti-government demonstrations focused on the clerical regime.

2. He's promising something he can't deliver

What can Trump do to help them?
Nothing but false hope.

7. Quit putting more sanctions on them. Same with NK. At least food imports

Should not be blocked. Starving people is inhuman and cruel and should not be used as a political pressure. Trump has caused the protests by adding tighter sanctions against the agreement made with Iran already, which the other six countries that signed the agreement say Iran has been complying with. Trump is starting shit, because that is another Obama deal. He could care less about the protesters. I wonder how he will react when a couple million people are in the streets, coming soon, to protest him.

8. Western media never had it right. Protests about the clerics, not economy. Any apologies for

just making shit up to suit your political agenda?

Do Americans understand or care about that difference and that President Rouhini was did the nuclear deal at great political peril and was very respected by Obama?

The American media needs to not misinform any more. Look who is boasting about nuclear war. Begin now. Please.

11. This is SO harmful to the protesters. Trump just tweeted the protesters' death warrant.

This dumbass tweet totally plays into the narrative by the Iranian government that the protesters are just treasonous stooges of the US. This will legitimize the Iranian government rounding up and jailing the protesters as dangerous subversives plotting a coup d'état in conspiracy with the US. These poor young people will never see daylight again. Or be executed.

16. This is what Trump doesnt get

He sits around and watches as Fox News blasts everything about Obama and how Obama handled the protests 9 years ago and he doesnt think that there might be nuance involved so he he hops on his twitter and just spouts off BS. What does this "support" look like Mr President? If its just saying on twitter you support them then it really means nothing.
