That tweet already gotten over 200,000 likes, making it the “most liked Persian tweet” in Twitter’s history.
You know why? Because unlike our own Democrat Party and their stenographers in the fake news media, the Iranian people know that Trump is sincere about peace and the right of self-government.
Iranian protesters on Saturday called on Khamenei to step down after Iran admitted to shooting down a Ukrainian commercial airliner on which dozens of Iranian citizens were traveling. That night the president sent out a tweet in Farsi, saying that he stands with their efforts.
“To the brave and suffering Iranian people: I have stood with you since the beginning of my presidency and my government will continue to stand with you. We are following your protests closely. Your courage is inspiring,” Trump wrote.
به مردم شجاع و رنج کشیده ایران: من از ابتدای دوره ریاست جمهوریم با شما ایستادهام و دولت من همچنان با شما خواهد ایستاد. ما اعتراضات شما را از نزدیک دنبال می کنیم. شجاعت شما الهام بخش است.

After just one hour, the tweet had received over 100,000 likes and has since more than doubled that number.
“This tweet by @realDonaldTrump with more than 100k likes is already the most liked Persian tweet in the history of Twitter,” Saeed Ghasseminejad, senior adviser and financial economist at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, claimed. “A strong show of support by Iranians for Trump’s Iran policy, something the MSM does not and will not report.”

And that’s all President Obama had to do back in 2009 when there was an uprising against the Iranian leadership back then, but the feckless Obama did absolutely nothing to show the US stood with them — because he didn’t.
Obama stood with the tyrannical Ayatollah over the people of Iran, as is evidenced by his disastrous nuclear deal with the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism.

From the Washington Examiner:
Iran responded to the U.S.’ recent killing of its top Gen. Qassem Soleimani by firing off over a dozen ballistic missiles at two military bases housing American troops in Iraq this week. While the missiles were being launched, a Boeing 737 carrying over 176 people from Tehran to Kyiv, Ukraine, crashed, killing everyone on board.
On Friday, Iran admitted to “unintentionally” shooting down the plane after originally claiming there was a mechanical problem and blamed “human error,” sparking the protests.
Don Jr. tweeted the significance of the president’s message to the Iranian people Sunday evening.

We see the same things happening around the world caused by the Trump Doctrine, which is a nationalist-populist movement that fights against tyranny with a yearning to be free.
In Hong Kong, protesters against the Chinese government are wearing Trump hats and holding up Trump signs and symbols.
They are literally holding up the American Flag and many, on camera, are singing the Star-Spangled Banner.
In Taiwan, voters celebrated their pro-democracy leader, Tsai Ing-wen, who was re-elected as president by a landslide victory on Saturday.
That victory signals strong support for her tough stance against the Chinese government among voters determined to defend their democratic way of life.
People in Taiwan are also standing up for the protesters in Hong Kong to fight Beijing’s influence there.
Freedom and democracy are spreading through the Middle East and Asia, and some EU members are starting to think about joining Great Britain in exiting that disastrous agreement.
This is the Trump Doctrine, folks. Freedom and democracy are breaking out everywhere. Now you know why the old order is attacking Donald Trump.
He is dismantling their stranglehold on their people, and even though the Democrats and the fake news media don’t get it, the rest of the world does.
Freedom is worth fighting for, because it always creates a better life for the people when government tyranny is drummed out. The freedom fighters know that when you get the government off the people’s backs, ordinary people can do extraordinary things.
