Iranian Supreme Leader Hassan Rouhani addressed diplomats and ambassadors in July of this year, “The Americans should learn well that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace and war with Iran is the mother of all wars.”
He went on to address President Trump;
Today, speaking with US has no meaning except surrender and end of people’s achievements. Mr Trump! We are the people of dignity and guarantor of security of the waterway of the region throughout the history. Don’t play with the lion’s tail; you will regret it.
This anti-American rhetoric prompted President Trump to address President Rouhani of Iran in a firmly worded tweet.
