U.S. President Donald Trump called on Iran's leaders to "NOT KILL" protesters in a tweet on Sunday. Trump wrote, "To the leaders of Iran - DO NOT KILL YOUR PROTESTERS. Thousands have already been killed or imprisoned by you, and the World is watching. More importantly, the USA is watching. Turn your internet back on and let reporters roam free! Stop the killing of your great Iranian people!"

Trump said on Twitter that his administration is closely following protests that erupted in Iran after that country's government admitted its forces shot down a civilian Ukrainian airliner by mistake.

"To the brave, long-suffering people of Iran: I've stood with you since the beginning of my Presidency, and my Administration will continue to stand with you. We are following your protests closely, and are inspired by your courage," Trump wrote in a post on Saturday.
