Trump steps up pressure, but Iran says it’s ‘unimpressed’

The Latest: Schumer chides Trump for heated rhetoric on Iran

Quite likely, Trump wanted to renegotiate the 2015 multilateral nuclear deal with Iran, which Trump has long held was too weak to be in United States interests.

"NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE", Trump tweeted after returning to the White House from a weekend at his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey.

In an interview with IRNA, Syed Tahir Hussain Mashhadi said the USA bullying approach will take them nowhere.

Trump's bellicose, all-caps challenge late Sunday to President Hassan Rouhani followed a speech by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in which he accused Iran's leadership of massive corruption and widespread rights abuses and urged Iranians to rise up in protest.

Speaking on Sunday to high-ranking diplomats in Tehran, Rouhani warned Trump that "war with Iran will be the mother of all wars" and cautioned Washington not to "play with fire". Or when the U.S. Navy fired warning shots at speedy Iranian military boats.

"I withdrew the United States from the terrible one-sided Iran nuclear deal", he said.

Trump on Sunday responded to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's comments that hostile behavior from the U.S. would result in the "mother of all wars" by vowing in a tweet that "You will suffer consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered".




Tehran claims that Trump's belligerent foreign policy has isolated the United States globally, and that the European Union and many other countries stand with Iran.

In the case of North Korea, the verbal war cooled quickly and gradually led to the high-profile summit and denuclearization talks. We've been around for millennia & seen fall of empires, incl our own, which lasted more than the life of some countries.

The politician added that the U.S. has not only withdrawn from Iran nuclear deal rather they are leaving other fundamental rights organizations and they are also withdrawing from everything wherever there is a vote against murder, mass slaughter and genocide of the Palestinian nation.

"America wants nothing less than [to] destroy Iran" but "Trump can not do a damn thing against Iran", the commander added. Before the nuclear deal, the U.S. was punishing Iran with the help of allies and even some adversaries. Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in particular feel empowered by the Trump administration's overt hostility toward Iran.

The analyst added that "neither Iran, nor any other country is interested in escalating tensions in the region". "We're ready to make a real deal, not the deal done by the previous administration, which was a real disaster".

"We have a bit of a Goldilocks problem when it comes to Iran on a number of levels, and this is one of them", she said.
