Approximately, 200 years ago, Rav Chaim Volozhin told Reb Dovid the following:
“…You should know, my son, that the day will come when the pillars of European Jewry will topple, when the yeshivos will be destroyed and
uprooted. However, they will be reborn in the exile of America, the
final stop of the Jewish people before the arrival of Moshiach. The
American exile will be the tenth and final exile of Torah, following
those of Babylon, North Africa, Egypt, Italy, Spain, France, Germany,
Poland and Lithuania”
