Trump and Pompeo Troll Iran

Trump and Pompeo Troll Iran

President Donald Trump on Tuesday kept open the possibility of negotiating an agreement to denuclearise Iran, two days after he rattled his sabre at the nation on Twitter.

However, the more bellicose part of the message quickly stimulate Trump, who on May 8 pulled the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal, to tweet - IN ALL CAPS - unprecedented punishment if Iran ever, EVER threatened the United State again.

Tensions between the U.S. and Iran have been at an all-time high in recent days after President Trump wrote an explosive tweet on Monday directed at Iran.

Zarif is not the only state official to have chimed in on the Twitter feud.

On Sunday, Iranian president Hassan Rouhani threatened the USA over the "mother of all wars" if the United States stuck to their policy of cutting off Iran's oil exports by November. Or when the U.S. Navy fired warning shots at speedy Iranian military boats.

"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", Trump wrote. 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.

The Republican leader's response was reminiscent of the belligerent tone he took with North Korea past year.

The price of gold soared more than 30 percent over a single day recently because of all the Iranians rushing to buying the yellow metal, commonly viewed as a good way to preserve wealth in volatile times. We've been around for millennia & seen fall of empires, incl our own, which lasted more than the life of some countries. Before the nuclear deal, the U.S. was punishing Iran with the help of allies and even some adversaries.

"America wants nothing less than [to] destroy Iran" but "Trump can not do a damn thing against Iran", the commander added. He also pressured Trump to not interfere with his government.

But Ghaemi, speaking via Skype, said the Trump administration's other policies hurt average Iranians.

"We do find it quite odd that the administration is so passionate and loud about human rights in Iran but really not in other [countries]", he said. "He was responding to comments made from them, and he's going to continue to focus on the safety and security of American people", Sanders said at the White House briefing later Monday.
