Donald Trump is erratic. Thus far, that has only cost us our good will with our European allies, provided financial loss for millions of government workers and contractors, and the greatest rev-up of hate crimes in decades. Now that POTUS may not get funding for his border wall, what 45 is pondering may be even more malevolent.

Trump found a meme about Iran written in English. Then, someone hand wrote a note in Persian on that meme, and Trump posted it, too. The meme read “Iranian people deserve a much brighter future,” and the president rewrote that:

’40 years of corruption. 40 years of repression. 40 years of terror. The regime in Iran has produced only #40YearsofFailure. The long-suffering Iranian people deserve a much brighter future.’

Immediately after posting it, he posted the meme with the Persian writing by an unknown writer:

Why Trump would tweet a meme written in English with a Persian note attached to it? That is the question. After all, it was impossible to link this to a person living in Iran.

This is how Microsoft translated it from Persian to English, so the Persian writer was more skilled:

 

 

This was an odd message from the president all the way around. If someone in Iran wrote the translation in Persian, who was that person? Plus, what was Trump’s point? Was he saying that the U.S. should give the “long-suffering Iranian People” their “Brighter Future?” If so, how would he go about that liberation? Is he talking war?

Numerous Persian speakers responded to Trump’s tweet, but many of them did not agree with Trump’s message. One said:

‘More than ten thousand accounts on Twitter have been closed! (by the Mojahedin-e Khalq and the Basij and Reza Pahlavi)…Twitter pages at the top of the US State Department is erased!”
