Translated into English, the president’s message reads:

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. We are following your protests closely. Your courage is inspiring.

Trump’s show of support to the Iranian protesters seemed coordinated with the State Department. He sent the message soon after the State Department tweeted a meme of Donald Trump supporting the Iranian people.
