White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders shut down journalists at her daily briefing on Tuesday, unloading on reporters attempting to equate President Trump’s approach towards Iran with his predecessor; adding that Hillary Clinton was “right” when she critiqued Obama’s approach to Iranian protests during his first term.

Sanders was speaking with the White House press pool for the first time since the holiday break when she was asked to comment on President Trump’s tweets regarding the civil unrest sweeping across Iran.

“One of the big things, and I think even Hillary Clinton outlined this when she said that the Obama administration was too restrained at the 2009 protests, and said that won’t happen again,” said Sanders.

“For once, she’s right. We agree with her, because President Trump is not going to sit by silently like President Obama did. He certainly supports the Iranian people, and wants to make that clear,” she added.

The President weighed-in on the protests taking place in the Islamic Republic on social media Tuesday, applauding the people of Iran for “finally acting against the brutal and corrupt” regime.

“The people of Iran are finally acting against the brutal and corrupt Iranian regime. All of the money that President Obama so foolishly gave them went into terrorism and into their “pockets.” The people have little food, big inflation and no human rights. The U.S. is watching!” he tweeted.
