Trump Tweet Breaks a Twitter Record But MSM Silent

President Trump broke a record for the “most liked Persian tweet” in Twitter history when he issued a message of solidarity with the Iranian people protesting Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, according to a think tank adviser.

Protests erupted in Iran over the weekend after the regime admitted it shot down a commercial airplane, killing all 176 on board, after lying about what really happened for days. The regime initially claimed the crash likely resulted from mechanical problems, then said they would not give up the black box and were even caught bulldozing evidence.

“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,” Trump tweeted in Farsi. “We are following your protests closely. Your courage is inspiring.”

Predictably, Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi did not appreciate the message, responding: “Hands and tongues smeared with threatening, sanctioning and terrorizing the Iranian nation, are not entitled to dishonor the ancient Persian language.”

At the time of this writing the tweet has amassed more than 356,000 likes. Saeed Ghasseminejad, a senior adviser and financial economist at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, said it broke a Twitter record and displayed “a strong show of support by Iranians for Trump's Iran policy” which the mainstream media will ignore.

Trump’s tweet in Farsi was just one of several he wrote over the weekend.

"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," he said. "There can not be another massacre of peaceful protesters, nor an internet shutdown. The world is watching."

He also urged the regime to not kill protesters.

Finally, the president said he "couldn't care less" if Iran negotiates.
