An Iranian photojournalist speaks against President Donald Trump's use of one of her photos in a tweet in which the president promoted a "brighter future"

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

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

Moaiery told NBC News that she did not license or otherwise grant permission to the White House or any other part of the US government to use the image. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and it is not clear how the image included in the Trump's tweet was obtained.

The President tweeted Monday in recognition of 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," the president tweeted. "The long-suffering Iranian people deserve a much brighter future."
