(CNSNews.com) – Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani told a gathering of Iranian Americans Saturday that President Donald Trump is as supportive as they are of regime change in Tehran, and predicted that he will withdraw from the Iran nuclear agreement later this week.

Giuliani is not a member of the administration, but recently joined Trump’s personal legal team and described himself in his speech as a “good friend” of the president for 30 years.

Addressing the Iran Freedom Convention for Democracy and Human Rights in Washington, he contrasted Trump’s message of support for anti-government protestors who took to the streets in Iran late last year with President Obama’s reaction to protests that occurred during his presidency.
