Fmr. Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad tweets support for Michigan football

Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been tweeting often recently, and one of those tweets included some support for the University of Michigan football team.

In response to a tweet from a man in Ann Arbor talking about how Michigan was 8-8 in its last 16 games under Jim Harbaugh, Ahmadinejad said, "With a hard work ethic Inshallah the U of M will return to its glory days."

Ahmadinejad served as president of Iran from 2005-2013. A definition of Inshallah from Merriam-Webster says it means "if Allah wills" or "god willing."
