Trump warned Iranian leadership, in a tweet in all capital letters, to never threaten the U.S again, or suffer the consequences.
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.
However, Trump announced the US' withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) or the Iran nuclear deal in May, which limited the country's uranium enrichment in exchange for sanctions relief. "This will take you nowhere", he said. This was after Iranian President Rouhani remarked earlier in the day that "American must understand well that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace and war with Iran is the mother of all wars". And Iranians have heard them -albeit more civilized ones-for 40 yrs.
The White House maintains the tweet was in response to threats from Iran's President, Hassan Rouhani, and Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
But some of Iran's neighbors who are US allies clearly support putting pressure on Iran. Trump said in May that he was withdrawing from the agreement signed by the Barack Obama administration. A more significant set of sanctions that will hit Iran's oil industry and central bank by punishing countries and companies that do business with them will resume November 4.
As Pompeo noted in his speech to Iranian-Americans and others in California on Sunday, the centerpiece will be the re-imposition of USA economic sanctions; the first batch will go back into force August 4, targeting the Iranian automotive sector and trade in gold and other metals.

United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted on Tuesday reminding European counties of the Iranian regime's terrorist plots across the world saying that they weren't immune to "Iran-backed terrorism".
President Donald Trump was back on Twitter again this week denouncing Iran, this time, in harsh terms and insinuating war or destruction at the hands of the United States.
"Europe isn't immune to Iran-backed terrorism".
The White House put the onus of the verbal standoff on Iran and Rouhani.
The exchange of harsh rhetoric was reminiscent of the threats that volleyed back and forth between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a year ago - exchanges that disappeared after the two adversaries agreed to negotiate a nuclear deal at a summit this spring.
Tensions escalated between the Trump administration and Iran, even as Iranians put pressure on their government.
