House Dems Hit Trump With All-Caps Tweet on Russian Federation

House Dems Hit Trump With All-Caps Tweet on Russian Federation

The irony is that at the beginning of the movement many people considered the attack on the oil companies' headquarters in al-Qurnah north of Basra, a part of an Iranian plan aimed at hindering the plan of US President Donald Trump to boycott Iranian oil exports.

Tweeted Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Monday: Colour US UNIMPRESSED: The world heard even harsher bluster a few months ago.

He says: "Iran has said very clearly that any war with them will be very costly, and this means American bases throughout the region could be a target".

Iran has faced increased US pressure and looming sanctions following Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from a 2015 global deal over Iran's nuclear program.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned the United States on Sunday that it could shut down global oil shipments in the strategic Strait of Hormuz if Washington continued to provoke Tehran.

Trump was responding to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who said earlier in the day that "American (s) must understand well that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace and war with Iran is the mother of all wars".

Within hours, Iran's state-owned news agency IRNA dismissed Mr Trump's tweet, describing it as a "passive reaction" to Mr Rouhani's remarks.

In reference to the Strait of Hormuz, the Iranian President said: "We have always guaranteed the security of this strait".

Also on Sunday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo launched a blistering attack on Iran in remarks at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California.

Rouhani also suggested Iran could immediately ramp up its production of uranium in response to US pressure.

Foreign policy analysts wondered whether Trump was looking to move past a spate of political troubles, including fallout from last week's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, or is serious about confronting Iraq. "We are seeking changes in the Iranian government's behavior".

Trump pulled the USA out of the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers in May despite objections from China, France, Germany, Russia and the United Kingdom.

"If anybody's inciting anything, look no further than to Iran", said White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said. 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.
