US President Donald Trump is unlikely to get the boot from Twitter even after threatening Iran with dire consequences as the microblogging site sees the world leaders with a different lens.

The tweet follows an apparent warning issued by Iran's President in which he said Americans "must understand that war with Iran is the mother of all wars and peace with Iran is the mother of all peace".

Rouhani warned Trump earlier on Sunday not to pursue policies that were hostile towards Iran.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has warned United States President Donald Trump not to escalate tensions with his country, saying a confrontation with the Islamic republic would be the "mother of all wars".

Iran faces increased USA pressure and looming sanctions after Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from a 2015 worldwide deal over Iran's nuclear program.

You go to a scene and you try to resolve it with a positive ending, and something that's gonna last, ' Carlson said. But Carlson said he doesn't think he did all that much - it "isn't. spectacular", as he put it.

Within hours, Iran's state-owned news agency IRNA dismissed Mr Trump's tweet, describing it as a "passive reaction" to Mr Rouhani's remarks. The deal had been a core component of former President Barack Obama's legacy, offering Tehran sanctions relief in exchange for a halt to Iran's nuclear ambitions. "Be cautious!" Trump wrote.

"The President has been, I think, pretty strong since day one in his language towards Iran". [Rouhani] gave a speech in which he said if the us attacks Iran, it'll be the mother of all wars...

"Whenever Europe has sought an agreement with us, the White House has sown discord", Rouhani said. And apparently firing back at reports that the U.S. was actively trying to destabilize Iran's leadership, he said, "You are not in a position to incite the Iranian nation against Iran's security and interests".

Though Trump may have been responding directly to Rouhani, the tweet came as part of an overall administration escalation of verbal attacks on Iran.

In Iran, threats and taunts toward the United States are common and part of many events sanctioned by the Iranian government.
