In a January 3, 2022 speech at an event commemorating two years since the killing of IRGC Qods Force Commander General Qasem Soleimani, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said that former U.S. President Donald Trump, who ordered the assassination of Soleimani, is a murderer who must stand trial and receive “retribution in kind” for his actions.
Raisi said that a tribunal should be established to implement this “divine ruling” against Trump and his administration officials, and that if this does not happen, there should be no doubt that the “hand of revenge will emerge from the sleeve” of the Iranian nation.
The audience chanted:
“Allah Akbar!... Death to America!”
"Death to Britain!"
"Death to Israel!"
