An Iranian photojournalist speaks against President Donald Trump's use of one of her images in a tweet where the president promotes a "brighter future" for the Iranian people.

Yalda Moaiery, 37, who lives in Iran's capital Tehran, wrote in an Instagram post this week that she took a picture of a woman under public protests more than a year ago around the University of Tehran.

"It would be a great honor for me if this image were a symbol of freedom anywhere in the world," wrote Moaiery Tuesday. But having President Trump "use it without my permission in a Persian tweet is a great shame to me and gives me deep grief."

Moaiery told NBC News that she was not licensed or otherwise authorized by the White House or any other part of the US Government to use the image. The White House did not respond promptly to a request for comment and it is not clear how the image in the Trump's tweet was obtained.

The president tweeted Monday to acknowledge the 40th anniversary of the Iranian revolution, which overthrew the Shah and led tens of thousands of Iranians to leave the country.

"40 years of corruption. 40 years of repression. 40 years of terror," the president tweeted. "The long-standing Iranian people deserve a much brighter future."
