Iranians will chant "Death to America" as long as Washington continues its hostile policies, but the slogan is directed at President Donald Trump and U.S. leaders, not the American nation, Iran's supreme leader said on Feb. 8.

"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 marking the 40th anniversary of Iran's Islamic Revolution, according to his official website.

Trump pulled out of Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with world powers last year and re-imposed sanctions on Tehran, dealing a blow to the country's economy. European signatories of the nuclear deal have been trying to save the accord, but Khamenei said they could not be trusted.

The European Union has stepped up criticism of Iran's ballistic missiles programme while remaining committed to the 2015 nuclear deal.

Yes I feel the same way! 🇺🇸 🇮🇷 Because we are civilians, we didn’t tell Trump what to do, he just chose to do it without even asking a lot of others he was supposed to ask.

As an American, I agree with everything he said. Where is the lie? When has america not done something to purposely hurt another person or country? You can’t name one 🤷🏻‍♀️
