The world is watching, Trump puts Iran on notice

The world is watching!' Trump condemns arrest of demonstrators amid widespread protests in Iran in sharply worded tweet

Donald Trump president of the United States of America, condemned the arrest of protesters in Iran on Friday, telling Tehran that 'the world is watching' as officials reported fresh demonstrations over the country's struggling economy.

Fifty-two people were arrested in Iran's second city Mashhad on Thursday, the first day of the protests, which also took place in other areas and spread to the capital Tehran as well as Kermanshah the following day.

'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,' Trump tweeted.

'Iranian govt should respect their people's rights, including right to express themselves. The world is watching! #IranProtests.'


Trump has repeatedly taken aim at Iran, denouncing its government as a 'fanatical regime' and accusing it of violating an international agreement aimed at curbing Tehran's nuclear program, refusing to certify its compliance with the deal.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert also addressed the protests.

'The United States strongly condemns the arrest of peaceful protesters. We urge all nations to publicly support the Iranian people and their demands for basic rights and an end to corruption,' she said in a statement.

While President Hassan Rouhani's nuclear deal with the U.S. and other world powers in 2015 promised to improve the economy as sanctions were lifted, unemployment has remained stubbornly high, with the figure at 12.4 per cent this year.

Protesters also aimed their rage at Iran's costly involvement in regional conflicts such as those raging in Syria and Iraq.

You forgot to mention Puerto Rico, Yemen, the lost aircraft carrier, and China helping us out with North Korea...big successes, all!

Not much more to say is there??

When even your worst critics are praising you, it's pretty much a slam dunk.

Or should i say a slam trump.

Unlike Muslim-in-chief Obama and all his broken promises

Trump is in cognitive decline. I wouldn't be surprised if he avoids trial because of mental impairment/unfitness.
