White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders expressed the Trump administration's support to the ongoing anti-government protests in Iran, speaking at a press briefing in Washington DC on Tuesday. «The United States supports the Iranian people and we call on the regime to respect its citizens' basic right — to peacefully express a desire to change. America longs for the day when Iranians will... Еще take their rightful place alongside the free people of the world,» said Sanders. «For once, she [Hillary Clinton] is right and we agree with her because President Trump is not going to sit back silently, like President Obama did. And he certainly supports the Iranian people, and wants to make that clear,» added Sanders. At least 21 people have died in Iran's anti-government protests that have raged since Thursday, with rallies against rising food prices, unemployment and alleged corruption. Iran's Supreme Leader Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei has blamed 'enemies' for the disruption.
