Donald Trump’s grandfather was a shady character. He left Germany to avoid the draft and ran to the West coast of this relatively new nation and built hotels where gold miners could get all their needs met, including sexual. Trump’s own father broke nondiscrimination laws in the New York City area housing he owned.

POTUS learned at the knees of these historic swindlers. So, it should come as no surprise that Trump has handled the Iran debacle badly, according to The New Times. The president tweeted for the NATO Summit:

‘The United States of America supports the brave people of Iran who are protesting for their FREEDOM. We have under the Trump Administration, and always will!’

Governor of Tehran’s province Anoushiravan Mohsen Bandpay admitted that many of the 2,021 people the government arrested had been released. According to Aljazeera, he said:

‘[T]ime based on [their] ignorance and in an emotional atmosphere and were immediately released.’

Donald Trump said that Iran was “killing thousands of people” who have been protesting:

‘Iran is killing perhaps thousands and thousands of people right now as we speak, that is why they cut off the internet so people can’t see what is going o, Not just small numbers which are bad, big numbers which are really bad, and really big numbers … It is a terrible thing and the world has to be watching.’

Amnesty International said that it thought a minimum of 208 people were killed the protests and ensuing aftermath.

Judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili commented:

‘I explicitly announce that the numbers and figures that are being given by hostile groups are utter lies and the statistics have serious differences with what they announced.’

An Iranian researcher at Amnesty Mansoureth Mills said:

‘We’ve seen over 200 people killed in a very swift time, in under a week. It’s something pretty unprecedented event in the history of the human rights violations in the Islamic Republic.’

Amnesty offered no breakdown for the deaths elsewhere in the country, though it said “the real figure is likely to be higher:”

‘Mills continued, saying we had a “general environment of fear inside of Iran at the moment. The authorities have been threatening families, some have been forced to sign undertakings that they won’t speak to the media. Families have been forced to bury their loved ones at night under heavy security presence.’

Iran’s UN mission in New York called Amnesty’s findings “unsubstantiated,” but staff would not go into detail. Spokesperson for the UN group, Alireza Maryouslf Alireza Miryousefi said:

‘A number of exile groups [and media networks] have either taken credit for instigating both ordinary people to protest and riots, or have encouraged lawlessness and vandalism, or both.’

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused America, Israel, and Saudi Arabia of causing violent protests. Iranian Security agents arrested eight individuals linked to the CIA.

In his strongest remarks since the demonstrations peaked – he described the two weeks of violence as the work of a “very dangerous conspiracy.”

At his NATO Summit, the U.S. commander-in-chief met with the Secretary-General of NATO Jens Stoltenberg in London. That was when the compliments started flying:

‘President Trump has been fighting for increased burden sharing by NATO members, and it’s working. Over $130 billion in new defense spending by member countries!’

Then, Trump met with France’s President Emmanuel Macron. Their meeting was more animated:

President @realDonaldTrumpjust met with Presiden t@EmmanuelMacron of France—a partner of the United States in many key ventures.’
