‘Death to America’ Trump aims, not the American country, Iran leaders say

Iranians will recite “Death to America” as long as Washington proceeds with its hostile policies, yet the slogan is directed at President Donald Trump and U.S. leaders, not the American country, Iran’s supreme leader said on Friday.

“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 denoting the 40th anniversary of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, as per his official website.

Trump hauled out of Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers a year ago and re-forced sanctions on Tehran, dealing a blow to the nation’s economy.

“‘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.

European signatories of the nuclear deal have been attempting to spare the accord, however Khamenei said they couldn’t be trusted.

“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.”

The European Union has stepped up criticism of Iran’s ballistic missiles program while staying focused on the 2015 nuclear deal.
