Trump says Iran will ‘suffer consequences’ after speech by president Rouhani

Donald Trump has threatened Iran with “consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before” in a late-night, all capital-letter tweet.

The post, sent at 11.24 pm ET on Sunday night, came after the Iranian president, Hassan Rouhani, warned the US about pursuing a hostile policy against his government, suggesting that “war with Iran is the mother of all wars”. Rouhani did not rule out peace, however, according to comments reported by the Iranian state news agency, IRNA.

The US president, who returned to the White House on Sunday evening after spending the weekend at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, addressed his tweet directly to Rouhani, warning the president to “NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN”.

The message continued: “WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!”

The liberal-feft went nutz, great fun. This is why he’s President.
