Trump responded with a tweet that warned: "NEVER EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKE OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE".
Rouhani warned earlier this month he might disrupt oil shipments in neighboring countries if the United States followed through with its sanctions on Iranian barrels. Any details of that plan remain to be seen, other than the economic sanctions the U.S.is set to reimpose after leaving the Iran nuclear deal.
"You can not provoke the Iranian people against their own security and interests", Mr. Rouhani said in a televised speech on Sunday, ahead of Mr. Pompeo's address. In an article for HuffPost, NIAC head Parsi claims that "Iranians know very well that the American public has little tolerance for war casualties", and that as a result, "their defence strategy has been primarily aimed at deterring an attack by preparing attrition warfare that raises America's risks and costs".

"If anybody is issuing 'demented words of violence and death, ' I would say it's the President of the United States", Boot said to Wolf Blitzer, referring to the language Trump used in his tweet.
"Regime leaders - especially those at the top of the IRGC and the Quds Force like Qasem Soleimani - must be made to feel painful consequences of their bad decision-making", said Mr. Pompeo, a long-time Iran hawk.
Pompeo, an arch-hawk and Iran critic, also promised U.S. support to any anti-government Iranian groups.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said at the weekend that the USA was not afraid to sanction top-ranking leaders of the "nightmare" Iranian regime, pursuing a strategy aimed at Iranian compliance with stringent U.S. demands. In a speech sharply critical of Iran's leaders, Pompeo said that the US would make efforts to broadcast to Iranians in Farsi, circumventing the country's censorship laws, according to The Independent.
Ms Sanders said that "if anybody's inciting anything, look no further than to Iran".
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has long pushed for a tougher stance against Iran by worldwide powers, praised Trump on Monday.
