Trump also tweeted his support for protests that have sprung up in cities and towns across Iran over the past week, proclaiming ”TIME FOR CHANGE!” Trump’s tweets came as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley called on the Security Council to convene emergency meetings to discuss Iran. This is White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders: “America longs for the day when Iranians will take their rightful place alongside the free people of the world. As the president said in October, we stand in total solidarity with the Iranian regime’s longest-suffering victims: its own people. The citizens of Iran have paid a heavy price for the violence and extremism of their leaders. And the Iranian people long to reclaim their country’s proud history, its culture, its civilization and its cooperation with its neighbors.”
