A war of words has opened up on Twitter, with Donald Trump taking strong action against provocations made by Tehran. This comes against the backdrop of growing tensions between Tehran and Washington over uranium enrichment, the continued threats by Iran to shut down the Straits of Hormuz and various geopolitical regional tensions from Afghanistan, Iraq, Israel and Saudi Arabia.
Trump Tweeted: “If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran,” he warned on Twitter on Sunday. “Never threaten the United States again!”
The Iranian foreign minister, Javad Zarif, has hit back at Donald Trump’s “genocidal taunts” after a strongly worded warning from Trump that Tehran should not think of attacking the US.
Last week The Unshackled reported that the Trump administration deployed bombers and an aircraft carrier to the Gulf over as-yet-unspecified threats from Iran.
