WASHINGTON (AA) – President Donald Trump on Sunday told Iran not to threaten the United States, saying it will be Tehran’s “official end”.

“If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again!” Trump tweeted.

He did not elaborate on the nature of the threat.

Last week, when Trump was asked whether the US was going to war with Iran, he replied: “Hope not.”

Responding to the US threats to bomb Iran, head of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, Major General Hossein Salami said, “We are not looking for war and yet we are not afraid of it either, but on the other hand, our enemies lack the will to wage a war and are afraid of fighting,”

“The Americans’ political philosophy is to plunder nations and pave the way for modern slavery and unilateral dominance over the fate of nations, but such philosophy has failed,” he added.

On Wednesday, the U.S. ordered all of its nonessential government personnel to leave Iraq.

Last week Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said: “The regime in Tehran should understand that any attacks by them or their proxies of any identity against US interests or citizens will be answered with a swift and decisive US response.”

Over the past few weeks, tensions between Washington and Tehran have escalated as the U.S. deployed a carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the Middle East, citing an imminent threat from Iran.

On Thursday, the New York Times cited intelligence sources as saying that Iran had recently deployed military vessels — armed with missile-launchers — in the Gulf, raising fears of possible conflict.
