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.
