DONALD Trump issued a dramatic warning to Iran’s “demented” leader today saying the Islamic Republic would suffer historic “consequences” if it threatened the US.
In a terrifying early morning Twitter post, the US President issued a warning in all capital letters to premier Hassan Rouhani as tensions grow between the two nations.
He tweeted: “NEVER EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKE OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE.”
It comes after Rouhani cautioned Trump over his hostile policies against Tehran.
The Iranian president believes there have been efforts by Washington to destabilise Iran’s Islamic government.
On Sunday, he said: “American must understand well that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace and war with Iran is the mother of all wars.”
Trump withdrew in May from the 2015 nuclear deal designed to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
Tehran has said its nuclear work is just for electricity generation and other peaceful projects.
But on Sunday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, opened a war of words when he compared Iran to a “mafia”.
Speaking in California, he said Iranian leaders had benefited from bribes and embezzlement.
He described two Iranian foreign ministers who brokered the nuclear deal with the US and five other countries as “polished front men for the ayatollahs international con artistry.”
