  • Troublemaker’ Trump pursues ‘ignorant diplomacy’ – Iran hits back at US

Rouhani's remarks Wednesday were his first since Trump warned the Iranian leader of dire consequences for threatening the United States.

Trump's pugnacious Tweeter message in all capital letters late Sunday came following Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's warning to him not to "play with the lion's tail" after the U.S. unveiled a series of measures which amount to a declaration of war.

Iran faces increased U.S. pressure and looming sanctions after Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from a 2015 worldwide deal over Iran's nuclear program.

The Iranian president was giving a speech to Iranian diplomats when he said, "Mr. Trump, don't play with the lion's tail, this would only lead to regret".

Pompeo also addressed USA demands that the Iranian Regime stops repressing dissidents and funding terrorist groups.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is bitterly opposed to Iran, praised Trump's "strong stance" on Tehran.

U.S. President Donald Trump participates in a cabinet meeting at the White House in Washington, U.S., July 18, 2018. "We're ready to make a real deal, not the deal done by the previous administration, which was a real disaster".

After President Donald Trump delivered a cryptic warning to Iran on Twitter Sunday evening, his national security adviser backed up his threats and mirrored the President's war-mongering language.

Mr Rouhani also suggested Iran could immediately ramp up its production of uranium in response to United States. pressure. However, he outlined his concerns about Iranian actions in the Middle East, including Tehran's support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the Houthi rebels fighting the government in Yemen.

Pompeo told a largely Iranian-American audience on Sunday that Iran's leadership was guilty of widespread corruption and abuse of individual rights.

Iran's people want to be free from a corrupt government and also wish for closer ties with the United States, says a USA senator.

"He certainly is not going to listen to aggressive leaders from other countries and their empty threats against America".
