Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in a November 2, 2022 address that was aired on Channel 1 (Iran) that the Iranian nation has defeated America. He said that in the upcoming world order, America will be unimportant and isolated, and he promised his audience that the "Death to America!" slogan that they chant will come true. Female students in the crowd, wearing traditional Iranian chadors, chanted "Death to America!" several times throughout the speech.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: "Like I have said before, our people punched [America] on the face, in the full sense of the word. Our nation defeated them. The Iranian people..."

Crowd: "Allah Akbar! Khamenei is the leader! Death to those who oppose the Rule of the Jurisprudent! Death to America! Death to England! Death to the hypocrites and infidels! Death to Israel!"


Khamenei: "In the new order that I am talking about, America will no longr have any important role. It will be isolated..."

Crowd: "Death to America!"

Khamenei: "Yes, it will happen. Death to America will happen. Some people say: 'By chanting "Death to America," you bring America's animosity upon yourself.' I say that this is not true. When America began its hostility towards Iran [in the 1953 coup], nobody had been chanting 'Death to America.'"
