Iran's president warns Trump of 'mother of all wars' if provoked

War with Iran is the mother of all wars, Rouhani tells Trump

US President Donald Trump warned Iranian President Hassan Rouhani not to threaten US ever again on Sunday.

In an explosive, all-caps tweet Mr Trump told Mr Rouhani to "never, ever threaten the United States again" and told him to "be cautious!".

His words, spelled out in capital letters in a late night Twitter message, came hours after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told Trump that hostile policies toward Tehran could lead to "the mother of all wars".

"You declare war and then you speak of wanting to support the Iranian people", he told the U.S. president, adding "You are not in a position to incite the Iranian nation against Iran's security and interests".

"There's more to come", Pompeo said.

Some of President Donald Trump's aides and allies have been regular speakers at the group's events, including White House national security adviser John Bolton and legal adviser Rudy Giuliani.

The legislation, defined as a 'basic law, ' granting it quasi-constitutional status, will likely face a challenge at the Supreme Court.

But Rouhani did not rule out the possibility of peace between both nations.

"While it is ultimately up to the Iranian people to determine the direction of their country, the United States, in the spirit of our own freedoms, will support the long-ignored voice of the Iranian people", Pompeo said in the speech in Simi Valley, California.

Trump has been a vocal critic of Iran since before he took office, vowing to scrap the Obama-negotiated nuclear deal - which he did in May, despite allies including the United Kingdom highlighting its success so far.

Khamenei used a speech to foreign ministry officials on Saturday to reject any renewed talks with the United States after President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from a 2015 global deal over Iran's nuclear program.

Mr Pompeo said he wanted to try to stop countries importing Iranian oil by November as part of continued pressure on Tehran.

"The level of corruption and wealth among regime leaders shows that Iran is run by something that resembles the mafia more than a government", he said.

"Although the incumbent USA administration does not make military threats, there is credible information that in the past year and a half, it has been trying to push the United States military to invade [Iran]".

There are an estimated 250,000 Iranian-Americans in southern California.

With an upsurge of "Iranians of all different social classes protesting", he said, the Trump administration will have to decide whether it wants to "support elements that actually want to change the regime".

Iran has a dominant position in the Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz, a main oil shipping waterway, he said.

The information service would insure that "ordinary Iranians inside Iran and around the globe can know that America stands with them", Pompeo said.

Speaking on a recent conference call with journalists, a senior State Department official said the USA wanted to deter Tehran from developing nuclear and ballistic weapons and supporting terrorism.
