'Never, ever threaten the United States again': Trump lashes out at Iran

"Never, ever threaten the United States again", Trump tweeted in capital letters on Monday.

Kamel Wazne says Iran can not trusts America after President Donald Trump pulled his country out of the nuclear deal with world powers and re-imposed sanctions on Tehran.

Trump's latest social media meltdown came on the same day that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered his own blistering verbal attack on Iran's leaders during a speech at the Ronald Reagan National Library in Simi Valley, California.

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

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was reported by Al Jazeera to have backed Rouhani's earlier statements to disrupt regional oil shipments.

Washington initially planned to shut Iran out of global oil markets completely after Trump abandoned the deal that limited Iran's nuclear ambitions, demanding all other countries stop buying Iranian crude by November.

This will ensure that "ordinary Iranians inside Iran and around the globe can know that America stands with them", he said.

Boot agreed that Trump's harsh rhetoric aimed at the Iranian president further highlights Trump's "subservience to Putin".

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has blasted Iran's religious leaders as "hypocritical holy men" whom he says are more interested in lining their pockets and spreading hardline views overseas than helping out their own cash-strapped citizens.

Many in Iran have expressed frustration that Trump has seemed willing to engage with North Korea, which has openly boasted of producing nuclear weapons, but not Iran, which signed the landmark 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

Many of the Iranian Americans in the audience either fled or are descendants of those who fled the country after the Islamic Revolution toppled the shah in 1979.

Iran has rejected talks with the US, and Rouhani has accused the USA of stoking an "economic war". "This especially goes for our allies in the Middle East and Europe, people who have themselves been terrorised by the violent regime's activity for decades", he said.

Roozbeh Farahanipour, 47, an anti-regime dissident who left Iran for the U.S. in 1999 and advocates for the overthrow of the country's religious leaders, was in the audience on Sunday and said that he thought Pompeo was trying to strong-arm Tehran. The United States supports you. He assured them that the Trump administration shared their dreams for the people of Iran. "Regime leaders - especially those at the top of the IRGC and the Quds Force like Qasem Soleimani - must be made to feel painful consequences of their bad decision making", the top United States diplomat said, referring to Iran's special forces and Revolutionary Guards.
