NEW YORK, NY — Iranians and Iranian-Americans who were impressed with President Donald Trump’s strong speech in response to the Iranian regime’s support for terrorism and global menacing at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday began the #MakeIranGreatAgain hashtag to showcase their support for the leader of the free world.

“We cannot let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building dangerous missiles and we cannot abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear program,” Trump told the General Assembly about Iran. “Believe me. It is time for the entire world to join us in demanding that Iran’s government end its pursuit of death and destruction.”

Iranians supportive of Iran’s regime — often referred to as “reformists” — tweeted the #ShutUpTrump hashtag against Trump, while those in support of free elections in the Middle Eastern nation, inspired by the president’s campaign slogan, wrote, #MakeIranGreatAgain.

One user wrote, “We Iranians absolutely don’t want Islamic regime, We are so tired of tyranny and violation of human rights in our country:”

Another user wrote that past administrations’ “Policy of appeasement towards the regime of Iran has proved to be useless. Stop it and try empowering Iranian people to .”

Others lamented for Iran’s last Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi:

A violent response from one Iranian user:

President Trump must decide whether he will re-certify the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or Iran nuclear deal, on October 15. During that time, he will inform Congress whether he and his administration believe the Iranian government is complying with the terms of the nuclear agreement.
