US President Donald Trump on Sunday night replied to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani threat that "playing with the lion's tail" would lead to "the mother of all wars."

In a tweet, Trump wrote, "To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE."

"WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!"

Earlier on Sunday night , US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo compared Iran's leadership to the mafia.

During a California speech, Pompeo said, "The level of corruption and wealth among regime leaders shows that Iran is run by something that resembles the mafia more than a government."

Pointing out that many Iranians have been protesting their government, Pompeo continued, "All those voicing dissatisfaction share one thing: they have been ill-treated by a Revolutionary regime. Iranians want to be governed with dignity, accountability and consent."
