To Trump: Iran is cradle of democracy

Tehran, Jan 3, IRNA – US President Donald Trump should understand that Iran is the 'cradle of democracy,' special aide to the Iranian Majlis speaker said on Wednesday.

'Iran is the cradle of democracy, not a place for starting a riot,' Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said in a twitter message.

'Mr. Trump, the Islamic Iran is just a powerful country which crushed the US-made Daesh with the help of its allies in the region,' Amir-Abdollahian wrote.

The US President Donald Trump, via several twitter messages, supported the recent unrest in Iran.

Iranians in a number of major cities started to protest against economic situation and shortcomings since December 28, 2017, but the protests turned into violence in some parts due to the provocations orchestrated from outside the country.
