Trump warns Iran to 'never, ever threaten' USA or suffer consequences

Shapiro: The Media Want You to Believe Everything Is on Fire, All the Time Under Trump

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has threatened the United States with "the mother of all wars" if Washington continues pressuring it with sanctions and attempts to foment unrest among the already disgruntled population.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif hit back at Trump's warning, which the us leader delivered written in capital letters in a late-night tweet. "The world heard even harsher bluster a few months ago". And Iranians have heard them - albeit more civilized ones - for 40 yrs.

"We've been around for millennia & seen fall of empires, incl our own, which lasted more than the life of some countries".

Among the most startling allegations leveled by Pompeo, who was Central Intelligence Agency director before becoming secretary of state, was that Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has a personal hedge fund worth $95 billion.

Trump in May withdrew the USA from the Iran nuclear deal, which eased sanctions on Iran in exchange for restraints on its nuclear weapons program.

However, the White House said the United States leader isn't escalating tensions between the two countries but rather the tweet shows the President is not going to tolerate critical rhetoric from Iran.

Pompeo also confirmed that Washington wants all countries to reduce their imports of Iranian oil "as close to zero as possible" by November 4, part of United States efforts to increase economic pressure on Tehran. "But right now Iran is a big threat".

"Could it be that Trump is trying to use Iran to distract us from whatever he's up to with Russian Federation?" he added. The sanctions will make any foreign institutions that continue to do business with Iran subject to huge fines and possible blockage from the US financial system.

"WithIn a few weeks, the US will reimplement the sanctions so they are panicking due to that", said Danon.

And Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, the 2016 Democratic vice presidential candidate, called the Twitter blast from the White House "another warning sign that Trump is blundering toward war with Iran".

Later Monday morning, national security adviser John Bolton said Trump told him that "if Iran does anything at all to the negative, they will pay a price like few countries have ever paid before".

Asked by reporters Monday afternoon whether he had any concerns about provoking tensions with Iran, Mr. Trump replied, "None at all".

Every other country in the pact has said it will uphold the deal.

However, during his weekly cabinet meeting Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also praised the president's statements regarding Iran.

On Sunday night, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo launched a blistering attack on Iran's religious rulers.

"There's more to come", Pompeo said.

Potentially that would escalate the very situation the nuclear deal sought to avoid - an Iran with a stockpile of enriched uranium that could lead to making atomic bombs.

"Right now, the United States is undertaking a diplomatic and financial pressure campaign to cut off the funds that the regime uses to enrich itself and support death and destruction", Pompeo said Sunday.

Wicker, who sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee, opposed the controversial Iranian deal under the Obama administration and supported Trump for withdrawing from it in May.
