President Trump is ringing in the New Year with both barrels blazing.
As anti-government protests in Iran gain steam, Trump hasn’t been shy about showing them his support. The president has taken a decidedly different approach than his predecessor and rushed to stand up for the protesters, unlike Obama’s passive response when similar protests erupted in 2009.
On Sunday Trump doubled down, and slammed Obama’s policies, while continuing to voice his support for the protests and slammed Iran’s government for Human Rights violations.
And on Monday, the president drilled it home, accusing the “foolish” Obama administration of helping to fund “terrorism” by the Iran’s government.
The people of Iran are finally acting against the brutal and corrupt Iranian regime. All of the money that President Obama so foolishly gave them went into terrorism and into their “pockets.” The people have little food, big inflation and no human rights. The U.S. is watching!

The Iran protests have been growing and is the first major anti-government demonstration since 2009’s “Green Revolution.” The Green Party had been quiet, but continued to remain strong as can be seen by uprisings springing up in major cities across Iran.
Former CIA Chief Gary Berntsen praised Trump’s strong approach to addressing the protests to Fox News over the weekend and also blasted the Obama administration.
“The Obama administration ordered the CIA-Iranian ops element to have no contact with the Green Movement … which, quite frankly, in the intelligence business is just stupidity. It’s insanity,” Berntsen said.
