U.S. Vice President Mike Pence says international economic sanctions on Iran are "emboldening" people to join antigovernment protests there, and he hopes President Donald Trump's message of support might be as resonant in Iran as Ronald Reagan's "evil empire" speech was in the Soviet Union. He made the comments in a January 3 interview with VOA contributor Greta Van Susteren. (VOA)
