US President Donald Trump threw Washington’s weight behind Iranians protesting against their own government on Tuesday, as part of his high-profile State of the Union address.

“When the people of Iran rose up against the crimes of their corrupt dictatorship, I did not stay silent,” he declared, in implicit criticism of his predecessor’s cautious response to a 2009 protest movement.

“America stands with the people of Iran in their courageous struggle for freedom,” he said, to applause from assembled lawmakers.
