Trump Celebrates “Peaceful” Iranian Protesters, Called For Violence Against US Protesters At His Own Rallies

Politico reports:

President Donald Trump has repeatedly voiced support for anti-government protests in Iran in recent days, joining a bipartisan and international chorus in support of the peaceful demonstrators.

Trump’s support for the Iranian demonstrators stands in stark contrast to his frequent criticism of Americans who protest his own government in the United States.

He frequently called for violence against protesters at his campaign rallies, where protesters were routinely roughed up by crowds, and has mocked those who marched in the wake of his election and inauguration. And he spent weeks this fall, calling for NFL players who protested police brutality during the national anthem to be fined or fired.
