President Donald Trump shared messages of support with Iranian protesters in Tehran on Saturday.

He wrote on Twitter.

Trump wrote the message on Twitter in English and Farsi as hundreds of Iranians protested the regime in Tehran.

به مردم شجاع و رنج کشیده ایران: من از ابتدای دوره ریاست جمهوریم با شما ایستاده‌ام و دولت من همچنان با شما خواهد ایستاد. ما اعتراضات شما را از نزدیک دنبال می کنیم. شجاعت شما الهام بخش است.

The president also pressured the Iranian government to allow human rights groups to monitor the protests.

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

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.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also demonstrated support for the protesters.

“We stand with the Iranian people who deserve a better future,” he wrote, criticizing the Iranian regime’s “lies, corruption, ineptitude, and brutality.”

The voice of the Iranian people is clear. They are fed up with the regime’s lies, corruption, ineptitude, and brutality of the IRGC under @khamenei_ir‘s kleptocracy. We stand with the Iranian people who deserve a better future. pic.twitter.com/tBOjv9XsIG

Protesters criticized the Iranian regime after they admitted to shooting down a Ukranian airliner despite initially denying it. The incident occurred just hours after the regime launched a series of missiles against United States military bases in Iraq.

Videos on social media showed protesters calling for Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei to resign and leave the country.

Today in #Tehran protest began due to the #IranPlaneCrash.

For days, Iranian authorities misled Iranians about the cause of the crash that killed everyone aboard #FlightPS752.

Iranian officials apologized & promised accountability. But now, they’re breaking up protests.

They must be held accountable.https://t.co/aFQo7jTYUx
