“What’s taking place within Iran is not about the United States or any other country; it’s about the Iranian people, and their aspirations for justice and a better life for themselves."
“I’m confident that history will be on the side of those who seek justice."
"It’s telling when governments fear the aspirations of their own people more than the power of any other nation.”“For months, the Iranian people have sought nothing more than to exercise their universal rights. Each time they have done so, they have been met with the iron fist of brutality, even on solemn occasions and holy days.”
“Each time that has happened, the world has watched with deep admiration for the courage and the conviction of the Iranian people, who are part of Iran’s great and enduring civilization.”
The President called for “the immediate release of all who have been unjustly detained.”
