Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned Trump about pursuing hardline policies against Tehran, saying "America should know... war with Iran is the mother of all wars", according to a Reuters report. "We are not longer a country that will stand for your demented words of violence & death".

In Tehran, a headline on a local newspaper quoted Rouhani as saying: "Mr. Trump, do not play with the lion's tail".

Trump tweeted late on Sunday about the dangers to Iran of making hostile threats after Rouhani said Sunday "American must understand well that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace and war with Iran is the mother of all wars".

Pompeo promised USA aid to Iranians who would rise up against their government officials, whom he said were "merely polished front men for the ayatollahs' global con artistry". Pompeo talked about increasing the media outreach to the Iranian people.

Pompeo also confirmed that Washington wants all countries to reduce their imports of Iranian oil "as close to zero as possible" by November 4, part of U.S. efforts to increase economic pressure on Tehran. "The United States supports you".
