Trump to Iran: 'Never, ever threaten' U.S. again

  • US President Donald Trump

A furious President Donald Trump on Monday warned his Iranian counterpart that Tehran risked consequences "the likes of which few throughout history have suffered before" if he threatens the U.S. again, hours after Hassan Rouhani cautioned that America's hostile threats may trigger "the mother of all wars".

His words, spelled out in capital letters in a late night Twitter message, came hours after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told Trump that hostile policies toward Tehran could lead to "the mother of all wars".

Earlier, Iran's president warned Mr Trump against provoking his country, while indicating peace between the two nations might still be possible.

In Germany - one of the six nations that signed the nuclear deal with Iran - Foreign Ministry spokesman Christofer Burger called for "dialogue" rather than belligerence on all sides.

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

Reporting on these remarks, Reuters insisted that Rouhani was "leaving open the possibility of peace between the two countries".

As Pompeo noted in his speech to Iranian-Americans and others in California on Sunday, the centerpiece will be the re-imposition of USA economic sanctions; the first batch will go back into force on August 4 targeting the Iranian automotive sector and trade in gold and other metals.

Mr Pompeo, in a speech to a largely Iranian-American audience in California, dismissed Mr Rouhani and Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, as "polished front men for the ayatollahs' worldwide con artistry".

Gen. Gholam Hossein Gheibparvar, the chief of the paramilitary Revolutionary Guard's volunteer Basij force, said Trump "won't dare" take any military action against Iran.

One of the Trump administration's key policies since taking office has been the decision to pull his country out of a key 2015 deal with Tehran that saw the lifting of sanctions on Iran in return for a curbing of its nuclear programme.

Trump has alleged that the deal did not restrict Iran's "destabilising activities" in the region enough, and could not detect or prevent any breaking of its terms.

A high-ranking Iranian officer says President Donald Trump's warning of unprecedented "consequences" for Iran, should it threaten the United States, is nothing but "psychological warfare".

The Iranian leader warned Mr Trump to stop "playing with the lion's tail" and threatening Iran, "or else you will regret it".

"I would like to praise the tough stand expressed yesterday by President Trump and Secretary of State (Mike) Pompeo against the aggression of the Iranian regime", Netanyahu said at the start of a cabinet meeting.

He said despite poor treatment by their leaders, "the proud Iranian people are not staying silent about their governments many abuses", Pompeo said.

Gholamhossein Gheybparvar said America wants to "destroy Iran", but Mr Trump "cannot do a damn thing", Reuters reported, citing Iranian news agency ISNA.

Following the United States withdrawal from the Iran nuclear accord that stunned even Washington's closest European allies, Pompeo on May 21 unveiled a "new strategy" meant to force Iran to yield to a dozen stringent demands. He said the government has "heartlessly repressed its own people's human rights, dignity and fundamental freedoms", and he hailed the "proud Iranian people (for) not staying silent about their government's many abuses".

He cited the harsh words between the U.S. and North Korea that preceded the high-profile summit between Mr Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and denuclearisation talks.
