President Trump late Sunday tweeted out to Iranian President Rouhani to never threaten the U.S. again or face historic consequences.
The tweet came on the heels of Rouhani’s warning to Trump that hostile policies could lead to the “mother of all wars” with Iran, Fox News reports.
“To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!” ~ President Donald Trump

Within hours, Iranian state-owned news agency IRNA dismissed Trump’s tweet, describing it as a “passive reaction” to Rouhani’s remarks. They stated that Trump’s comment was only mimicking and copying Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif who had in the past warned the West to “never threaten an Iranian.”
On Sunday, Iran threatened the United States with war and bringing the U.S. to our knees, you can read the full report here.
Tehran (ISNA) – President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Dr. Hassan Rouhani made explicit remarks against US President Donald Trump at the meeting of the heads of Iranian missions abroad.
He said, “Iran’s power is deterrent and we have no fight or war with anybody but the enemies must understand well that war with Iran is the mother of all wars and peace with Iran is the mother of all peace. We have never been intimidated and will respond threat with threat”.
At the meeting that was held on Sunday, Dr. Rouhani added, “Today, speaking with US has no meaning except surrender and end of people’s achievements. Mr. Trump! We are the people of dignity and guarantor of security of the waterway of the region throughout the history. Don’t play with the lion’s tail; you will regret it”.
Do you believe war is on the horizon with Iran or do you believe there is still a diplomatic solution?
