Khamenei also encouraged the citizens of Iran to share their feelings about Donald Trump on Friday, which is the anniversary of the revolution that unseated the US -backed shah, reports Al Jazeera.
Hundreds of thousands of Iranians gathered in Tehran today to celebrate the anniversary of their theocracy and also to chant "death to America", burn USA flags and carry effigies of President Trump.

Anti-American rhetoric at this year's commemoration, however, was more subdued than usual. When Iranians ousted the shah in 1979, one of their demands was independence from the dominant powers of the time, the United States and the Soviet Union.

"With the deal in jeopardy, the system will be in vital need of Rouhani's team of smiling diplomats and economic technocrats to shift the blame to the USA and keep Iran's economy afloat", said Vaez.
While the rally was lead on my passionate chants, it also brought with it effigies of President Trump-some hanging from ropes.
