Protests have broken out across Iran over the downing of the Ukrainian passenger airplane by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps. — which tried for days to cover it up.

The protests are a continuation of the protests last fall, which were crushed by the IRGC under leadership of the late Qassem Soleimani, with an estimated 1500 killed and thousands more arrested.

Trump just weaponized one of his greatest weapons, his Twitter account, tweeting in Persian:

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.

Contrast this with 2009, when Obama remained silent during the brutal suppression of the Green Revolution, He Who Cannot Stop Talking, Is Silent On Iran.
