Iranian President Warns Trump Not To 'Play With The Lion's Tail'

Iranian President Warns Donald Trump About ‘Mother Of All Wars’ If Iran Is Attacked

In December past year, Twitter began enforcing new rules on violent and hateful content posted on its platform to reduce the amount of online abuse, hate speech, violent threats and harassment associated with its service. "You will suffer consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before".

On Sunday, Mr Pompeo was strongly critical of Iran, calling its religious leaders "hypocritical holy men" who amassed vast sums of wealth while allowing their people to suffer.

Pompeo accused Iran of corruption and mismanagement at the highest levels and said the country had backed terrorist attacks in Europe even as it tried to reassure European Union members that Iran will follow restrictions in their nuclear agreement.

Trump in June had threatened sanctions on countries that purchased oil from Iran, which the Iranian leader dismissed.

"Iran is not the same country anymore, that I can say", Trump said at the Veterans of Foreign Wars National Convention in Kansas City, Mo. The US President is known for his liberal use of capitalization for emphasis, but it is rare for him to resort to capitalizing entire tweets.

Iran is facing increased USA pressure and looming sanctions after Mr Trump's decision to pull out of the 2015 global deal meant to prevent Tehran from developing nuclear weapons.

The context is the tussle over the future of Iran's oil exports.

"So I think the president was making very clear that they're on the wrong track".

Wazne, the director of American Strategic Studies institute in Beirut, warned that "it needs just one mistake to have a major regional war". "BE CAUTIOUS!" he tweeted. He also held out the possibility of a peaceful relationship with the USA, in remarks reported by Iranian state media.




Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the administration's tough stance.

It would be an "obvious mistake" to negotiate with the United States as Washington was unreliable, Khamenei added according to his website.

Under the Trump administration, the United States has taken an increasingly hostile approach toward Iran.

All other parties to the deal - Russia, Britain, France, Germany and China - have sought to keep the deal in effect, saying it is working as intended by preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons for now.

Seed Leilaz told The Associated Press on Monday that he isn't "worried about the remarks and tweets", which he described as propaganda. "If anybody is inciting anything, look no further than to Iran".

Mara noted that Trump also directed violent language toward North Korea - before meeting with Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

Trump's warning to Iran came hours after a speech by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who denounced Iran's clerical leadership as a "mafia" and promised unspecified backing for Iranians unhappy with their government. "The United States is with you".

Rouhani warned earlier this month he might disrupt oil shipments in neighboring countries if the United States followed through with its sanctions on Iranian barrels.
