Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, delivered a press conference in Tehran on November 8, 2018. He said that the Iranian people have the right to chant "death to America" because the economic sanctions are hurting them and that it is America's and Israel's policies that will lead to their demise rather than the Iranian chants. In a response to people who say that he should stay in Iran rather than return to the U.S., Farrakhan said: "America is mine. America is ours… How dare you say we cannot criticize your evil and point it out to you? I am more of a patriot than most of you who bow down to evil, and I speak the truth." During the press conference, a Press TV (Iran) reporter asked Farrakhan if he would be willing to chant "death to America" on camera. Farrakhan said that he would not, and he accused the reporter of being paid to provoke him. Press TV interrupted their live broadcast of the press conference during Farrakhan's accusations. The excerpts in this video were from Ruptly, a part of the Russia Today network, and from IRINN TV.
