“To the brave and suffering Iranian people:” Donald Trump consoles Iran

Donald Trump

President Trump has reached out to the people of Iran, assuring them that he has always stood by them from the beginning of his Presidency, and will continue to do so.

The President, reaching out to Iranians, told the citizen of the embattled oil-rich middle-eastern country that he has always stood by them since the beginning of his presidency and will continue to do so.

What is more amazing is the fact that Donald Trump sent the message in Persian, the native language of the people of Iran, directly on his Twitter account.


Translated using Google Translate, his message read:

“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’s message is coming on the heels of the protest that rocked the majority of Iran after Iran officials admitted that it had indeed shot the UkrainPlane that killed 176 people. 81 were Iranians.

Recall that the country’s top military leader Qasem Soleimani was killed in a drone strike on the 3rd of January 2020 that was ordered by President Donald Trump.

Days after the death of the Quds leader, Iran threatened to retaliate, and missiles were fired at a US military base in Iraq. Less than 48 hours from the Iraqi missile attack, a Ukrain-bound Boeing 737 carrying 176 passengers was involved in a crash that killed all 176 people on board.

It was not immediately clear what caused the crash as officials blamed the crash on engine failure. Speculations led to investigations which revealed that the plane was actually shot by Iran, in what is believed to be a mistake.
