Iranian Lawmakers Chant ‘Death To America’ While Burning Paper American Flag [VIDEO]

Peter Hasson | Reporter

Iranian lawmakers set fire to an American flag and chanted “death to America!” on the floor of parliament Wednesday after President Donald Trump announced the U.S. would be withdrawing from the Iran nuclear agreement.

Video posted on social media by an Iranian news outlet shows several lawmakers setting the flag on fire and leading a crowd in the anti-American chant.

A Shiite cleric was among those leading the chants, The Associated Press reported.

Trump announced Tuesday that the U.S. would be withdrawing from the Iran deal, as expected.

The president said the existing deal was “horrible” and “so poorly negotiated that even if Iran fully complies, the regime can still be on the verge of a nuclear breakout in just a short period of time.”
