Netanyahu: Iranian Regime Tries Desperately to Sow Hate Between Iran & Israel

Bolton: 'Our Goal Should Be Regime Change in Iran'

Kellyanne Conway had some strong words for Susan Rice after the former National Security Adviser tweeted out a New York Times article titled, “How Can Trump Help Iran’s Protesters? Be Quiet."

Rice, who served under former President Obama, apparently took issue with a series of tweets from President Trump in which he condemned the Iranian regime and praised the anti-government protests that are taking place across the Islamic republic.

"I wish she had been quiet when she lied about what happened in Benghazi, when she blamed a tape when we know that's not what happened. [She] went on five Sunday shows and lied to the American people about it," Conway said on "Fox & Friends," referring to the since-debunked claim that an anti-Muslim video sparked the 2012 terror attack in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead.

Conway said Iranians are standing up for freedom and demanding basic essential needs, and now is certainly not the time to "be quiet."

"This president stands with the Iranian people in their quest to get basic freedoms," Conway said.

She noted that Obama did not come out in support of Iranian protesters when they spoke out against the re-election of then-President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in 2009, and Trump has shown that his policy toward Iran will be very different from his predecessor's.

"He has made clear, beginning as a candidate, how much he disagreed with the Obama-Clinton lack of doctrine when it came to Iran," Conway said, singling out the "terrible" Iran nuclear agreement.
