Ten people were killed overnight in anti-government protests sweeping Iran, according to state TV, via BBC.

President Trump tweeted this morning: "Iran is failing at every level despite the terrible deal made with them by the Obama Administration. The great Iranian people have been repressed for many years. They are hungry for food & for freedom. Along with human rights, the wealth of Iran is being looted. TIME FOR CHANGE!"
