Trump Threatens Iran's Leader in All-Caps Tweet

Trump reacts to Iranian president’s warning of ‘mother of all wars’ with fiery statement of his own

In May, Mr Trump stepped back from Barack Obama's Iran nuclear deal, which restricted Tehran's nuclear ambitions in exchange for lifting global oil and financial sanctions.

Germany is calling for restraint amid escalating rhetoric between the leaders of Iran and the United States.

European nations and others are now struggling to keep the nuclear accord alive and maintain economic ties with Iran. Rouhani also said that a peace with Tehran is like "the mother of all peace".

"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 at Rouhani. "BE CAUTIOUS!", he wrote.

The Trump administration has announced new efforts to try to undermine Iran's government, including social media messaging and a round-the-clock Persian-language broadcast channel.

In a blistering speech hours earlier, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo likened the Iranian regime to the mafia, accusing the clerics that rule the country of enriching themselves and funding terrorism at the expense of ordinary Iranians.

As the meme spread, one user found the flawless photo to help us imagine Mr Trump screaming the words in real life.

"In a single day the Trump administration has firmly steered the US onto a path of confrontation with Iran", remarked Rainwater. Iran is one of the world's largest oil producers, with exports worth billions of dollars each year.

While Pompeo was speaking about the lack of free speech in Iran, he was interrupted by a heckler.

"Regime leaders - especially those at the top of the IRGC and the Quds Force like Qasem Soleimani - must be made to feel painful consequences of their bad decision making", the top U.S. diplomat said, referring to Iran's special forces and Revolutionary Guards.

According to the ISNA news agency, Rouhani argues that Iran has a dominant position in the narrow sea passage and reaffirms its control of the strait. He dismissed Trump's salvos as "psychological warfare".

It was the concern that sanctions could be reinstated that led to Mr Rouhani's warning.

But Francona, the retired military intelligence officer, thought the "fire and fury" comments were not as heated as Trump's Iran tweet.




"Both America and Iran have threatened one another in different ways for several years", shrugged Mohsen Taheri, a 58-year-old publisher.

The strait "should either be safe for everybody or unsafe for everybody", Tasnim quoted Heidari as saying.

The agency also accused Trump of copying Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who had in the past warned the West to 'never threaten an Iranian'.

"The economy is a very complicated thing". Many refrain from using their full names to avoid detection.

"Iran is angry since Trump responded to Tehran's engagement diplomacy by pulling the US out of the nuclear deal", Iranian lawmaker Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh told the AP.

Others simply rewrote President Trump's tweet with song lyrics.

On Saturday, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei praised Rouhani's firm response to the USA threat to halt Iran's oil exports, saying his significant stances that signify the Establishment's policy must be seriously pursued by the Foreign Ministry.

Rouhani said, "There were no times in the past like today that we are witnessing the White House acting against the worldwide law, Islamic World and Palestinian people".

Trump announced in May that he would ditch the agreement and reimpose sanctions, to which National Iranian American Council (NIAC) president Trita Parsi responded, "this is how the Iran war started".

"Or what? What's the president going to do?" He's showing peace through strength.

Trump came into office vowing to take a hard line on Iran and scrap the Obama-negotiated nuclear deal of 2015, a promise he fulfilled in May.

"We call on all sides to exercise restraint and rhetorical disarmament", he told reporters.
