Rep. Hurd: World Should Tell Iran Protesters, 'We're With You'

Rep. Will Hurd, R-Texas, said Tuesday the world should stand up with President Donald Trump and say to the Iran protesters, "We're with you."

In an interview on Newsmax TV's "The Joe Pags Show," Hurd said media coverage is too focused on what Iran's president Hassan Rouhani and the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei are saying.

"They're not amplifying the message of the Iranian people," he said, adding even security forces are beginning to say, "'Hey, I didn't join this job to kill my own people. I'm with you.'"

"This is what the rest of the world should be doing is saying 'hey, we're with you,'" he said.

He also refuted the contention there is a reformist movement along with hardliners in the Iranian government.

"This is not a good-cop, bad-cop" government, he said. "They are all beholden to the Ayatollah, and so the only way you're going to see change is if you get a different kind of people in there – and acting as if there is the reformist there are willing to push back or have the ability to push back against the Ayatollah — that is just . . . poor."

He said the Iranian people also are acutely aware sanctions were not what was causing them hardships.

"The people are sick and tired, and here was one of the fallacies that we heard under the last administration of the Obama regime — that the Iranian people knew that it was sanctions that were causing them to have hardships," he said.

"With these protests we're seeing a direct repudiation of that because they're talking about how the Iranian government is not doing enough . . . the fact that you have people in the streets chanting 'the Mullahs must go, the Ayatollahs must go' that's such a big deal."
