According to a new report from The Washington Free Beacon, the Trump administration will not miss a chance to use the protestors to overthrow the ‘hardline’ Iranian regime.
The Trump administration is keeping a close eye on the growing protests in Iran, with senior administration officials working to ensure President Donald Trump does not miss an opportunity to incubate a possible revolution that could topple Iran’s hardline ruling regime, according to White House officials who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.
With the world watching growing demonstrations across Iran, the Trump administration sees an opportunity to feed the growing protests.
They also point out that this is a huge difference from how Obama handled this situation in 2009.
The Trump administration is not seeking to repeat what it described as the Obama administration’s failure to support demonstrators who could eventually topple the clerical ruling regime of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
“While Obama administration officials continue to double down on its failed, passive approach to past freedom uprisings in Iran, President Trump and Vice President Pence are making clear to the world that they will not turn their backs on the freedom-seeking protesters,” one senior administration official told the Free Beacon on Tuesday, after reports claimed another nine protesters were killed and at least 450 arrested.
“The Trump administration’s strong and vocal support for the demonstrators is a 180 from the Obama administration’s approach and it’s signaling to Tehran that this will not be a repeat of the 2009 demonstrations,” the administration official said.
This is a strong move from President Trump. Trump has talked tough since taking office on Iran and even decertified the Iran Deal late last year. Iran is attempting to build a nuclear arsenal and has been funding Terrorism worldwide. At this point, it seems the only way for peace with Iran is the toppling of this hardline regime and the Trump administration is working hard to make this happen.
