President Trump tweeted support for Iranian anti-government protesters in their own native tongue, Farsi, Saturday, saying, "I've stood with you since the beginning of my presidency" and "we are inspired by your courage." He also called on the Iranian government to "allow human rights groups to monitor and report facts from the ground," and warned, "there can not be another massacre of peaceful protesters, nor an internet shutdown."
