This tweet by @realDonaldTrump with more than 100k likes is already the most liked Persian tweet in the history of Twitter. A strong show of support by Iranians for Trump’s Iran policy, something the MSM does not and will not report.

A video below shows protesters tearing down banners in support of Khamenei and Soleimani:
All the Iranian people are standing with you and all have supported the killing of the mass murderer terrorist Qasem Soleimani.

Another tweet in support of President Trump:
As an Iranian who is against I.R, I must say what you alone did to the Mullahs & in the favor of people in 3 years, was more than all other presidents combined.
Thank you sir. Keep up the pressure on them and we will end them soon and end this 40y old nightmare.#WarCrimeInIran
