US President Donald Trump on Thursday November 21st said the Iranian regime resorted to shutting down internet access, thinking that it could hide the crimes it committed against the “Great Iranian people,” as protests continued in many Iranian cities.

Trump blamed the regime for the “death and tragedy” currently taking place, as reports asserted that over 100 victims were killed so far since angry protests started few days ago. He added that shutting down the internet access proved the country had become “so unstable”.

"They want ZERO transparency, thinking the world will not find out the death and tragedy that the Iranian Regime is causing!" Trump wrote.
