Iran's Rohani Warns Trump: 'Don't Play With The Lion's Tail'

Iran responds to President Trump’s all-caps threat – with their own all-caps tweet

In an address to a meeting of heads of Iran's diplomatic missions overseas, held in Tehran on Sunday morning, Rouhani derided Trump's plan to drive the Islamic Republic's oil exports down to zero, saying an individual with even a basic knowledge of politics would never talk about a halt to Iranian oil exports.

Earlier this month, Rouhani-unnerved by his failure to win a commitment from the European powers that they would not bow to USA pressure and renege on their obligations under the Iran nuclear accord-said that were Iran denied the right to export its oil it might close the Straits of Hormuz.

"The president is facing an intense political backlash over his press conference last week with Vladimir Putin", Meyers said on Monday night's show.

While Trump's "tough stand" was hailed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, it also provoked an avalanche of questions about its exact meaning and impact.

At the same time, Germany said threats of war were "never helpful".

Iranian President Threatens U.S. With Mother Of All Wars
The escalating tensions between the nations come after Trump withdrew the USA from the Iran nuclear deal earlier this year. Tensions resurfaced this week after Iranian president Hassan Rouhani warned the U.S. faces with " mother of all wars ".

The Iranian leadership was responding to the threat of U.S. sanctions after President Donald Trump in May pulled out of a multinational agreement to trade with Tehran in return for its commitment not to develop nuclear weapons.

Russian Federation says it is convinced Iran is not building nuclear arms and that Washington is misleading the world.

When asked about the president's motivations, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said he was focused on "the safety and security of the American people" and ensuring Tehran did not acquire nuclear weapons.

"I absolutely feel that [the US should have sent troops], yes", Trump told gossip columnist Rona Barrett in 1980. "We are no longer a country that will stand for your demented words of violence & death".

He said Iran could well go to war to protect its oil exports, the foundation of its economy.

Sarri's first game at the helm is scheduled to be the July 23 friendly against Perth Glory in Western Australia. And the Blues face on-pitch challenges too, with domestic rivals strengthening.

"We have nothing against the Iranian people, they are good people", said Danon.

"Neither Iran, nor any other country is interested in escalating tensions in the region", he said.

Mr Trump has suggested Iranian leaders are "going to call me and say "let's make a deal", but Iran has rejected talks.

For years Iran has remained relatively quiet with their threats to the United States, thanks in part to the Iran nuclear deal they signed three years ago.

In a speech late on Sunday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo denounced Iran's leaders as a "mafia" and promised unspecified backing for Iranians unhappy with their government.

He accused the United States of working to weaken and "overthrow" the clerical establishment and create divisions in the country. "And the United States under President Trump will not stay silent either".
