Sen. Graham Says Trump Told Iran: 'There's a New Sheriff in Town'

The kind of threat that Trump made on Twitter on Sunday could have attracted penalty from the social network for any regular person as Twitter's policy bars users from making threats of violence on its platform.

"It's time for Iran to shape up and show responsibility as a responsible nation". "If America wants to take a serious step in this direction it will definitely be met with a reaction and equal countermeasures from Iran", he said. "This will take you nowhere", he said.

Rouhani had said that the Americans should realize well that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace and war with it is mother of all wars.

But she seemed to downplay concerns about his aggressive posturing, saying Trump has been "pretty strong since day one in his language toward Iran".

Trump directly addressed the Iranian leader with his threat.

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

Gilbert's #leTour over after 'lucky escape' following crash into ravine
The 65-kilometre (40-mile) route from Bagneres-de-Luchon features three grueling climbs and hardly a stretch of flat road. The only thing lacking from the wild 16th stage of the Tour de France on Tuesday was a shakeup in the overall standings.

Google receives a record breaking $5 billion fine
Recall that in June 2017, the European Commission fined Google for 2.42 billion euros for violation of antitrust laws. This is done by linking certain words in irrelevant web sites to artificially increase the words' ranking by Google.

It went on to assert that Israeli forces had deliberately killed minors with the use of live ammunition. As one of our loyal readers, we ask you to be our partner.

As CBS News correspondent Elizabeth Palmer reports, on Tuesday a spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry said there would be "equal countermeasures" if the USA pushes ahead with attempts to block Iranian oil exports. "And Iranians have heard them - albeit more civilized ones - for 40 years", he said, adding that Iran "has been around for millennia" and has witnessed the fall of empires, including its own, "which lasted more than the life of some countries". He said the government has "heartlessly repressed its own people's human rights, dignity and fundamental freedoms", and he hailed the "proud Iranian people (for) not staying silent about their government's many abuses".

A long-time critic of the historic 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, Trump walked away from the agreement this May.

In touting his defense build-up, Trump also maintained tough talk toward Iran and others.

It's dubious that Iran will go that far and risk a military confrontation with the U.S. - especially since its naval forces in the area largely consist of ships dating back to the 1960s and '70s. "We're ready to make a deal". Still, there has been little tangible progress in a global push to rid North Korea of its nuclear weapons program since the historic Trump-Kim Jong Un summit on June 12.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders declines to say whether Trump had consulted with national security aides before sending his all-caps Sunday night tweet that warned Iran might "SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE".
