President Donald Trump has been told to “never threaten an Iranian” after starting a potentially dangerous social media stand-off by warning Iran not to threaten America again, or it will face its “official end”.
The US leader tweeted on Monday: “If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again!”
His tweet received a swift response from the foreign minister of Iran, Javad Zarif, who said Trump “hopes to achieve what Alexander, Genghis & other aggressors failed to do”.
