Trump Warns Iran: ‘Never, Ever Threaten the United States Again’

They then urged Trump to hold Russian Federation responsible for interfering in the 2016 USA election.

National security adviser John Bolton backed Trump's tweet Monday, telling reporters in a statement, "I spoke to the president over the last several days, and President Trump told me that if Iran does anything at all to the negative, they will pay a price like few countries have ever paid before".

USA officials say that the Trump Administration has formally launched an "offensive" campaign of speeches and online statements aimed to erode support for Iran's government and to foment pressure against them. "Be cautious!" Trump said, writing the entire message in capital letters.

Gheibparvar's comments were reported by the semi-official ISNA news agency.

Trump called for Rouhani to stop the rhetoric or "suffer the consequences the like of which few throughout history have ever suffered before".

President Donald Trump has escalated a war of words with Iran over the weekend tweeting an all-CAPS threat on Sunday after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani remarked, "America must understand well that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace and war with Iran is the mother of all wars".

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday that Trump's hostile policies toward Tehran could lead to "the mother of all wars", according to a report by state new agency IRNA. "Do not play with the lion's tail or else you will regret it".

Trump ordered increased American sanctions after those sanctions had been suspended as part of the accord.

Another Tehran resident, Mehdi Naderi, fretted that the US measures and his own government's policies are damaging the lives of the average Iranian. A more significant set of sanctions that will hit Iran's oil industry and central bank by punishing countries and companies that do business with them will resume November 4.

Although Iran and European signatories have been scrambling to save the deal, many Western companies and banks have stopped doing business in Iran amid fears they could be targeted by a reapplication of United States sanctions.

Some analysts said Trump may be seeking a replay of his approach to North Korea.

Mara noted that Trump also directed violent language toward North Korea - before meeting with Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

"The US seeks the return of the situation and their status before the (1979 Islamic) revolution in Iran", said Khamenei.

"Now the Administration is pushing regime change & the 2 sides are exchanging threats like this", Kahl tweeted.

Wasting no time, President Trump responded to the Iranian threat via Twitter.

The tweet is reverberating across the Middle East.

He added, however, the war of words between the two presidents was to be expected, since official diplomatic relations between the two countries have been frozen for decades.

On Sunday night, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo separately addressed a group of Iranian-Americans in California. He described them as "merely polished front men for (Khamenei's) global con artistry".

Mr Leilaz said he was not "worried about the remarks and tweets", and that "neither Iran, nor any other country is interested in escalating tensions in the region".
