Schumer chides Trump for heated rhetoric on Iran

Schumer chides Trump for heated rhetoric on Iran

Since President Donald Trump pulled the USA out of the Iran Nuclear deal, he's ramped up his incendiary rhetoric towards the Islamic Republic.

Also on Sunday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo compared the Iranian government to the "mafia".

That in turn prompted Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Monday to urge the US president himself to "be cautious".

Rouhani's remarks on Wednesday were his first since Trump warned the Iranian leader of dire consequences for threatening the US. Or when the U.S. Navy fired warning shots at speedy Iranian military boats.

As for a new nuclear agreement, Iran has said it wants to retain the 2015 agreement it signed with the United States and allies.

Trump said in a Sunday tweet that Iranian President Hasan Rouhani would "SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE", if he threatens the United States.

Tehran claims that Trump's belligerent foreign policy has isolated the United States globally, and that the European Union and many other countries stand with Iran.

"We've been around for millennia & seen fall of empires, [including] our own, which lasted more than the life of some countries". It's about as serious this time around, but there's more bad blood behind Trump's deployment of all caps against Iran.

The Republican leader's response was reminiscent of the belligerent tone he took with North Korea previous year. "Now, if you believe that, I have some Florida real estate I could sell you", he said.

"America wants nothing less than [to] destroy Iran" but "Trump can not do a damn thing against Iran", the commander added.

A senior commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guard was quoted in Iranian media saying "Iran will resist pressure from the enemies" and that Trump's threats against the country amounted to "psychological warfare", Reuters reported. "The Trump administration's Iran policy seeks to address the totality of these threats and malign activities and to bring about a change in the Iranian regime's behavior". Analysts say activists inside Iran see a connection between the global tensions and the worsening economics.

"Sadly, after pulling us out of the nuclear deal with Europe and Iran, there doesn't seem to be strategy for how to move forward to fight Iran's activities", she said.

He says that unlike North Korea, "Iran never moved toward a nuclear bomb" and that therefore, "Iran is angry since Trump responded to Tehran's engagement diplomacy by pulling the US out of the nuclear deal".

"The EU along with China and Russian Federation have shown that they have political determination to continue implementation of the nuclear deal".
