In a development that was mostly completely ignored by the media, President Trump broke a Twitter record for ‘most liked Persian tweet’ with his expression of support for Iranian protesters.

Saeed Ghasseminejad, a senior adviser and financial economist at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, noted that Trump’s tweet smashed a record and displayed “a strong show of support by Iranians for Trump’s Iran policy”:
