Iranian Supreme Ruler Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has reiterated the old slogan 'death to America' saying that it means 'death to Trump'

As tensions rise between the US and Iran following President Donald Trump pulling out of the Iran deal, Khamenei clarified on what Iranians meant by the chant.  

Khamenei allegedly told a group of Iranian air force officers during a speech celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Iranian revolution.

"As long as America continues its wickedness, the Iranian nation will not abandon ‘Death to America,’" Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told a gathering of Iranian Air Force officers, according to his official website.

Tensions escalated last year to the point were Rouhani issued the call to the global Islamic community, urging them to join forces against the United States, instead of "rolling out red carpets for criminals," in a thinly veiled reference to President Donald Trump.

Trump famously pulled out of Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers last year, re-imposing sanctions on Tehran.

"'Death to America' means death to Trump, (National Security Adviser) John Bolton, and (Secretary of State Mike) Pompeo. It means death to American rulers," Ayatollah Khamenei said.

Even though European signatories have been doing everything to keep the Iran deal, Khamenei warned against trusting them.

"I recommend that one should not trust the Europeans just as the Americans," Khamenei said.

"We don’t say, don’t have contacts with them, but it’s an issue of trust."

Last month, Trump branded the US intelligence agencies as “naive” and “wrong” following their annual ‘threat assessment’ which contradicted his stance by downplaying Tehran’s nuclear threat.

The President also dismissed the agency's assessments of the threat posed by North Korea which contradicted his judgments during congressional testimony.

The Senate committee was told by leaders of the US intelligence community that North Korea's nuclear threat remained valid and that Iran was not in the stages of developing a nuclear bomb.
