Trump Warns Iranian President 'Never Threaten the US'

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned Trump about pursuing hardline policies against Tehran, saying "America should know... war with Iran is the mother of all wars", according to a Reuters report.

Mr. Trump was responding to reports earlier Sunday that Mr. Rouhani had addressed the US president at a gathering of Iranian diplomats with threats including "the other of all wars".

Iran's state-owned IRNA news agency further goaded Trump, describing his tweet as a "passive reaction".

Earlier this month, a Revolutionary Guards deputy commander said Iran would halt oil shipments through the strait if the USA were to block Iranian oil exports, and Rouhani talked about potentially blocking regional oil exports-though the Iranian president did not overtly mention the Strait of Hormuz at the time.

The president earlier this year pulled the United States out of the global deal meant to prevent Tehran from developing a nuclear weapon and ordered increased American sanctions.

Rouhani also shared a message for Trump, saying "do not play with the lion's tail, because you will regret it eternally".

Iran's state news agency said the tweet was typical of Trump's "bullying words".

But Rouhani also seemed to aim for peace.

Did Rouhani respond to Trump's threat?

"Every peace-loving person in the USA needs to press the president to tone down his rhetoric and rethink this march to war". Relations with North Korea took a surprising turn after that, culminating in a historic meeting between the two leaders in Singapore in June.

'Africa real' World Cup winners, says Venezuela president
France's victorious football team has paraded the World Cup before hundreds of thousands of fans in Paris . Kylian Mbappe , the 19-year-old French phenom, has announced his World Cup proceeds are going to charity.

Over the weekend, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the launch of a 24/7 Farsi-language channel that would reach people in Iran through a variety of media, including on television, radio, digital format and social media.

Despite the trajectory upward of inventories at Cushing, U.S. crude still found support from export demands amid geopolitical tensions, including falling output from Venezuela, said Phil Flynn, an analyst at Price Futures Group in Chicago.

There is a temptation to say that Trump's Twitter tirade against Tehran is symptomatic of the domestic political crisis that has gripped the country since even before Trump entered the Oval Office.

Iran has rejected talks with the US, and Rouhani has accused the USA of stoking an "economic war".

It is unclear whether the European Union can salvage the nuclear deal without the support of the United State, which is taking a hardline approach on the Gulf nation. Then, earlier this month, Iran threatened to block regional oil exports after Trump urged other countries not to import Iranian oil and imposed sanctions on those who did (these sanctions have since been softened).

Pompeo's comments came during an appearance at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum on Sunday evening.

Iranian Americans typically express a range of views on United States policy towards Iran.

"The people and armed forces will stand firm in the face of our enemies, and will not retreat". That agreement, which was negotiated by the Obama administration, curbed elements of Iran's atomic energy program that raised proliferation concerns in exchange for an end to restrictions on Iran's oil exports and banking system.

"We have put on the table the possibility of a treaty relationship with the United States if Iran decides to change its behaviour and to start behaving like a normal country".
