Trump Breaks Twitter Record For ‘Most Liked Persian Tweet’

Published

on

Expression of support for Iranian protesters and warning to regime went over massively

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”:

The tweet eventually amassed over 367,000 likes, with further tweets also reaching huge numbers.

The President’s message of solidarity with the Iranian people and a further warning to the regime to not kill protesters again were hugely popular.

“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 tweeted in Farsi. “We are following your protests closely. Your courage is inspiring.”

Predictably, the Iranian foreign ministry responded with derision, tweeting back “Hands and tongues smeared with threatening, sanctioning and terrorizing the Iranian nation, are not entitled to dishonor the ancient Persian language.”

The Iranian regime has cracked down on protesters, with reports of soldiers and riot police firing into crowds of civilians, despite denials by Tehran police.

It emerged this week that Trump’s decision to assassinate IRGC Guds Force chief Qasem Soleimani was actually months in the works.

NBC cited  multiple officials who suggested that “The presidential directive in June came with the condition that Trump would have final signoff on any specific operation to kill Soleimani, officials said.”

The president’s message was “that’s only on the table if they hit Americans,” according to a person briefed on the discussion.

Washington residents worried after confirmed case in Seattle; Man treated by ROBOT

Search engine requests for ‘virus mask’ have exploded as panic begins to set in regarding the deadly coronavirus, which experts have warned could lead to a global pandemic.

The spike is comparable to those registered during other major virus outbreaks:

The searches for “virus mask” are most prevalent in Singapore, China, Macao, Hong Kong, and the Philippines.

Other related searches are exploding:

Statistics also show that in the US, people in Washington, Hawaii, California, the District of Columbia, and Massachusetts are the ones doing the most googling:

Cases of the killer virus have not only been reported in China but also in Singapore, Thailand, Japan, South Korea, and Vietnam.

A suspected case is being investigated in Texas, while The CDC has confirmed a traveler from China has been diagnosed in Seattle.

CNN reports that the man arrived to hospital in an ISOPOD and is being treated largely by a robot, in an effort to avoid any spread of the virus:

There are also several potential cases in the UK, prompting the government to call an emergency meeting.

Several frightening videos purporting to show victims of the virus have emerged, including people dropping dead in the street and a man being wheeled away in a giant quarantine box:

WTF Is This?

Bizarre footage has emerged of a man in China, suspected of having the killer coronavirus, being wheeled away to a fate unknown in some kind of huge quarantine box.

The footage shows a man dressed in a hazmat suit, mask and gloves being transported to an ambulance outside the airport in the city of Fuzhou in south-eastern China.

This all seems perfectly normal, right?

Reports continue to suggest that the deadly coronavirus is out of control in China, and an attempted cover up is underway.

Entire cities are in lockdown and more footage has emerged of people dropping dead in the streets.

As we highlighted yesterday, a biosafety level 4 laboratory that studies the “world’s most dangerous pathogens” is based in Wuhan, leading some to speculate whether the virus was accidentally released.

However, officials say the source of the outbreak was an illegal animal market in Wuhan which sold bats and snakes.

Government calls emergency COBRA meeting

The British government has called an emergency meeting after medical experts warned that it is ‘highly likely’ that the deadly super-bug has already reached UK shores.

The Cobra contingencies committee convened at the Cabinet Office in London, where Health Secretary Matt Hancock told press that “the clinical advice is that the risk to the public remains low and the chief medical officer will be making a full statement later today.”

Dr Paul Cosford, Director of Health Protection, noted that several suspected cases of the virus, which originated in China, are still ongoing with results expected today.

Speaking on BBC radio, Cosford said “There are no positive cases in the UK as yet, but we will go on testing and those numbers will of course change.”

“I think it’s highly likely that we will have cases in the UK, and of course every so often we do get new infections coming from the animal kingdom such as this one.” he added.

According to a BBC report, a total of 14 people have been tested in the UK, with nine people awaiting results and five getting the all clear.

The head of infection medicine at the University of Edinburgh, Professor Jurgen Haas, confirmed that four people in Scotland have exhibited symptoms of the virus.

Haas told the Press Association: “The situation will be pretty similar in pretty much all UK cities with a large number of Chinese students.

“It’s not too surprising. My suspicion is that there will probably be many more cases in many other cities in the UK.” Haas added.

Meanwhile, in the US, officials at the Brazos County Health District in Texas said Thursday they are investigating a suspected case of the virus in a student at Texas A&M University.
