The call for a bounty on US President Donald Trump was broadcast live on Channel One on January 5 during the nationwide funeral processions honoring General Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Qods Force, who was assassinated by the United States on January 3.
The call was made by an unidentified Islamic eulogist at the funeral procession in Mashhad.
“We are 80 million Iranians. If each one of us puts aside one American dollar, we will have 80 million American dollars, and we will reward anyone who brings us (Trump)’s head with that amount,” the eulogist said to acrowd in Mashhad.
“And we would give this $80 million, on our own behalf, as a gift to anyone who brings the head of the person who ordered the murder of the grand figure of our revolution. Anyone who brings us the head of this yellow-haired lunatic, we would give him $80 million on behalf of the great Iranian nation. Chant if you agree.”
The crowd reacted with loud chants.

The identity of the eulogist remains unknown and the bounty has not been confirmed by Iranian officials. However, such developments demonstrate the state of the Iranian society after the act of agression conducted by the United States.
Iran’s media outlets are also actively working to deliver the message:
