On June 21, 2020, Ofogh TV (Iran) aired an anti-U.S. propaganda music video titled "I Am America." The video showed animations and clips of President Donald Trump, of conflicts in the Middle East, of the George Floyd protests. The lyrics are as follows: "I am the enemy of terrorism, [even] though I sometimes disguise myself as ISIS [...] I'd bathe in blood in Yemen, Iraq, Gaza, or Damascus - who cares? [...] Gambling with people's lives is my hobby! I am America [...]  It's time we unite and our voices become one [...] This is a chance to liberate all the people. It is the end of your reign, America!"

Singer: "I'm the advocate of human rights. I am the enemy of terrorism. I'm the advocate of love, peace, and compromises, even though I sometimes disguise myself as ISIS. I'd bathe in blood in Yemen, Iraq, Gaza, or Damascus - who cares? Whatever. The microphones and camera lenses turn to me whenever something happens. These bloody records should be in the Guinness World Records. Nobody can break these records! Gambling with people's lives is my hobby! I am America, I am America. I wear velvet gloves and a helmet. You can watch my tricks in Hollywood. I stand with people even when I impose medical sanctions. I'm a gentleman at the negotiation table. You'll see the wolf I am if I take off the mask.

[...]

"It's time we unite and our voices become one to break all the fences, one by one. This is a chance to liberate all the people. It is the end of your reign, America!"
