The senior adviser and financial economist noticed Trump's supportive tweets at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, Saeed Ghasseminejad, who remarked the protests were, "a strong show of support by Iranians for Trump's Iran policy, something the MSM does not and will not report."

The nation's commander in chief also tweeted translations in English to the Iranian people:

To the brave, long-suffering people of Iran: I've stood with you since the beginning of my Presidency, and my Administration will continue to stand with you. We are following your protests closely, and are inspired by your courage.

Trump targeted the Iranian regime in his second tweet:

The government of Iran must allow human rights groups to monitor and report facts from the ground on the ongoing protests by the Iranian people.

There can not be another massacre of peaceful protesters, nor an internet shutdown. The world is watching.

On Sunday morning, Trump warned Iran not to harm its protestors:

To the leaders of Iran - DO NOT KILL YOUR PROTESTERS. Thousands have already been killed or imprisoned by you, and the World is watching. More importantly, the USA is watching. Turn your internet back on and let reporters roam free! Stop the killing of your great Iranian people!

On Sunday, the citizens of Iran flooded the streets in their thousands as protesters demanded a change in leadership following their government's admission to shooting down a Ukrainian passenger plane.

Iran initially denied claims that it had shot the plane down, killing all 176 people on board, after Canada and the US made the accusation, only later admitting it after irrefutable evidence emerged.

Activists posted images online of what appeared to be the remnants of a rocket near the crash site.

At the same time, a separate video showed an Iranian anti-aircraft missile strike the plane before it crashed.

President Hassan Rouhani, released statements Saturday morning, admitting to shooting down the plane "accidentally," claiming "human error" was to blame.

He later implied that Presdient Donald Trump and the US Government was responsible.
