Ivanka Facing Backlash After Bragging on Twitter About Her Father’s Successful Tweets

Donald Trump tweeted a message in support of Iranian protesters in Farsi Saturday, as demonstrators took to the streets to speak out against the government following the country’s admission that it inadvertently shot down a Kyiv-bound commercial plane.

And Ivanka quickly took to Twitter to brag that the tweets were the most liked Farsi language tweets in history.

Protesters flooded the streets in Tehran Saturday chanting “death to liars” and “death to the dictator” in reference to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, according to The New York Times, as citizens mourned the loss of those killed in the crash.

“To the brave and suffering Iranian people: I have stood with you since the beginning of my presidency and my government will continue to stand with you,” Trump’s said.

We are following your protests closely,” he added. “Your courage is inspiring.”

About 20 minutes later, Trump tweeted again, this time in English.

“The government of Iran must allow human rights groups to monitor and report facts from the ground on the ongoing protests by the Iranian people,” he said.

Do you think President Trump bailing out a few of the big corporations was the right move?
