Protesters took to the streets in Iran.
After, Tehran admitted to mistakenly shooting down a Ukrainian passenger jet and killed 176 people.
Donald Trump tweeted in both English and Farsi: “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.”
In a separate tweet, Trump wrote: “The government of Iran must allow human rights groups to monitor and report facts from the ground on the ongoing protests by the Iranian people. There can not be another massacre of peaceful protesters, nor an internet shutdown. The world is watching.”
