President Donald Trump is warning Iranian President Hassan Rouhani that he will face dire consequences for threatening the United States.
Rouhani had hinted earlier this month that Iran may block regional oil exports if its own sales are halted following the U.S. withdrawal from the nuclear deal.
In a televised speech, Hassan Rouhanitold the American president: "Do not play with the lion's tail, you will regret it forever".

He said the goal of the United States is to see Iranians inside their own country live the same kind of life Iranians in the United States enjoy.
