Iran will 'suffer consequences' if threats continue

President Trump issued a strongly worded all-caps late-night tweet after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that war with Iran would be

Bolton - one of Trump's two top foreign policy advisors - is believed to be the US President's lead man on Iran.

"NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE", the U.S. president said.

"We are no longer a country that will stand for your demented words of violence & death".

The conservative writer said Trump is a "master of distraction", and that if any other president had tweeted the same threats to Iran, "you'd think he'd probably belong in a padded cell".

Mr Trump's furious tirade came after Mr Rouhani warned the USA via the country's state media that the "mother of all wars" would take place if the nation maintained its hostilities towards Iran.

Iran's state-owned IRNA news agency further goaded Trump, describing his tweet as a "passive reaction". "Americans should know that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace", he added.

In Washington, U.S. officials familiar with the matter told Reuters that the Trump administration had launched an offensive of speeches and online communications meant to foment unrest and help pressure Iran to end its nuclear programme and its support of militant groups. In May, the USA left a deal which reduced Iran's nuclear activities in return for the lifting of worldwide sanctions.

President Donald Trump has warned Iranian President Hassan Rouhani that he will face dire consequences for threatening the United States.

On Sunday, the president hit the button and fired off a strongly worded warning to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

In a speech late on Sunday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo denounced Iran's leaders as a "mafia" and promised unspecified backing for Iranians unhappy with their government.

Citing harsh words the United States and North Korea had exchanged before the high-profile summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Leilaz said Trump and Kim got "closer" despite the warring words.

"Trump's tweet chastised Iran for the very language Trump employed in his tweet", observed Peace Action executive director Jon Rainwater.

Speaking on a recent conference call with journalists, a senior State Department official said the USA wanted to deter Tehran from developing nuclear and ballistic weapons and supporting terrorism.

Iran's oil exports could fall by as much as two-thirds by the end of the year because of new USA sanctions, putting oil markets under huge strain amid supply outages elsewhere. "USA!" The chaotic scene lasted for 30 seconds or so, with Pompeo eventually quipping, "If there were only so much freedom of expression in Iran", to cheers and applause.
