Washington, July 23 (RHC)-- U.S. President Donald Trump lashed out against Iran Sunday, warning he was prepared to unleash what he called "dire consequences” if Iran’s president threatens the United States again.
In a Sunday evening tweet addressed to President Hassan Rouhani and written in all caps, Trump wrote: ”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 was responding to a warning issued by Iranian President Rouhani, who said: “War with Iran is the mother of all wars. Mr. Trump: don’t play with the lion’s tail. You will forever regret it.”
Rouhani’s comments came after he learned Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was to set to address an Iranian-American audience in California. During those remarks, delivered Sunday, Pompeo compared Iran’s leaders to con artists and mobsters.
The U.S. is working to restore sanctions against Iran -- and companies that do business with Iran -- after Trump withdrew the U.S. from the landmark 2015 Iran nuclear deal in May.
