The demonstrations in Iran, which have erupted against a backdrop of rising food and gasoline prices, began Thursday in the northeastern city of Mashhad before spreading to other cities. "We don't think we need a Band-Aid, and we don't think we need to smile and take a picture".

Iran's missile program is not in breach of its nuclear deal and will continue despite objections from the United States, President Hassan Rouhani has said.

Asked if the U.S. supports regime change in Iran, White House press spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told a press briefing: "We support them giving basic rights to the people of Iran and we support them stopping being a state sponsor of terror and we want to see those actions take place". The global community made the mistake of failing to do that in 2009. "We're going to make sure they come to the table and we want to move forward with the peace process".

"The UN must speak out in the days ahead, we will be calling for an emergency session", she said.

"As we hear reports that North Korea might be preparing for another missile test, I hope that does not happen, but if it does we must bring even more measures to bear on the North Korean regime", Haley said. "Those are the words of the fearless people of Iran".

Unsafe wind chill temperatures in northern Montana
In the afternoon and evening, wind chills will stay below zero as actual temperatures range from the single digits to teens. Temperatures drop down into the low teens tonight but winds at 10-15 miles per hour will make it feel like the negatives.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley indicated on Tuesday that continued Palestinian refusal to meet with American envoys and return to peace talks with Israel could cost them a loss of aid, the Times of Israel reported.

Obama was initially reluctant to speak forcefully in favor of the demonstrations for fear the Iranian regime would undermine the grass-roots nature of the protests. "The freedoms that are enshrined in the United Nations charter are under attack in Iran", she said.

A wave of protests about Iran's weakening economy swept the Iranian capital of Tehran over the weekend, the largest protest against the Islamic Republic's clerical government since the disputed 2009 presidential election.

"We must not be silent. We don't care", Trump told reporters at the White House.

"The whole territory of the U.S.is within the range of our nuclear strike and a nuclear button is always on the desk of my office and this is just a reality, not a threat", he said, while emphasising that the weapons would only be used if North Korea was threatened. "We need to also organize an worldwide response".
