via ‘The world is watching’: Trump warns Iran amid anti-government protests – AOL News

President Trump has weighed in on the recent anti-government protests in Iran.

“Many reports of peaceful protests by Iranian citizens fed up with regime’s corruption & its squandering of the nation’s wealth to fund terrorism abroad. Iranian govt should respect their people’s rights, including right to express themselves,” Trump wrote in a tweet on Friday. “The world is watching!”

According to CNN, “The protests — described as the largest public display of discontent since the 2009 Green Movement in Iran — have emerged against a backdrop of rising food and gasoline prices. Some arrests have been reported in Iranian media.”
