President Trump warned Iran Sunday night that it better not continue threatening the United States or the country “will suffer consequences.”
In a message to Iranian President Rouhani, Trump tweeted in all caps: “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!” . . .
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!

“America should know that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars,” Rouhani told Iranian diplomats, according to Reuters. . .
Trump’s comments also came after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered remarks to members of the Iranian American community, expressing support for the Iranian people and saying the leadership in Tehran “resembles the Mafia more than a government.” (Read more from “Trump Tweets an All-Caps Warning to Iran.
