The Latest: Schumer chides Trump for heated rhetoric on Iran

Here's what we know - the thin and fragile beginnings of diplomatic ties between the USA and Iran under President Obama have been shattered in just a couple short years under Trump.

Trump's tweeted warning late Sunday to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani - all in capital letters, the digital equivalent of shouting - sparked questions about Washington's strategy towards the Islamic republic.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif responded with a tweet that included some all-caps punctuation of his own.

"This is a moment in history".

When President Trump warned Iran over Twitter on Sunday night about severe consequences for any threats toward the United States, it did not just come out of the blue.

Trump 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.

Iran, as a result of his decision, is not the same country any more, he asserted.

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

The politician added that the USA has not only withdrawn from Iran nuclear deal rather they are leaving other fundamental rights organizations and they are also withdrawing from everything wherever there is a vote against murder, mass slaughter and genocide of the Palestinian nation.

"We've been around for millennia & seen fall of empires, [including] our own, which lasted more than the life of some countries. Empty/ridiculous U.S. rhetoric in response to same from Iran".

Sanders said on Monday that Trump has been "very clear about what he's not going to allow to take place". Before the nuclear deal, the USA was punishing Iran with the help of allies and even some adversaries.

But some of Iran's neighbors who are USA allies clearly support putting pressure on Iran.

The analyst added that "neither Iran, nor any other country is interested in escalating tensions in the region".

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

He tempered this on Tuesday, saying "we're ready to make a real deal" with Iran. Based on anonymous sources the outlet found that, "The Trump administration has launched an offensive of speeches and online communications meant to foment unrest and help pressure Iran to end its nuclear program and its support of militant groups".
