Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei addressed the U.S. government, saying that any attempt to harm them "will not be left without retaliation." With regard to U.S. President Trump, whom he called "unbalanced," Khamenei said: "these theatrical games of madness will not go unanswered." The crowds responded with chants of "Death to America!" "Death to England!" and "Death to Israel!" His speech, delivered on January 9, was broadcast by Iran's Channel 1.

 

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: "I have a message to the Americans. First, I say to the U.S. administration: You have come up against a brick wall this time. You may [try] to do this again, but know that you will hit a brick wall again."

 

Audience Member: "Say: 'Allah Akbar!'"

 

Audience: "Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! 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 the infidels! Death to Israel!"

 

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: "Second, you have harmed us, these days. Perhaps you will [try] to harm us again in the future. Know that this will not be left without retaliation."

 

Audience: "Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! 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 the infidels! Death to Israel!

 

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: "Third, the gentleman at the head of the administration there even though he is unbalanced... In America, these days, they are talking about his psychological problems, and about psychologists and psychiatrists for him. We have heard about this too. Ultimately, he, his administration, and his circle should know that his theatrical games of madness will not go unanswered."
