    I caught the tail end of this item very late last night, so chased it up this morning.

    ‘Death to America’: Iranians say it is only a rallying call
    As tensions rise between Iran and US, some Iranians say ‘death to America’ chant should not be taken so seriously.

    US President Donald Trump has repeatedly accused Iran of being a state sponsor of terror. He points to the old slogan “death to America” as a perfect example of Tehran’s intentions.

    However, some Iranians say the Americans should not take the chant literally as it is a way for many people to express the anger they feel about US policies towards their country.

    Al Jazeera’s Zein Basravi reports from Tehran.

      Trump was being alarmist and lying during the mid-terms talking about this caravan of people, that were never really going to try and get in.
      He was simply posturing by putting the army in place. There was never anything to see, there was no real problem.
      Now they are there and they are trying to cross illegally, and Trump is a bully and heartless.

        No, he’s not. No country is going to tolerate potentially thousands of people barging their way into their country whether they like it or not because these people have simply decided they want to live there. Putting the army in to help beef up the border is an obvious thing to do. The UN needs to get its arse into gear and start sorting something out with Mexico – and the countries they’re fleeing from.
