Gholamhossein Gheybparvar said America wants to "destroy Iran", but Mr Trump "cannot do a damn thing", Reuters reported, citing Iranian news agency ISNA.

President Donald Trump on Sunday night tweeted a threatening message to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, using all-caps, a style which is normally reserved for emergencies or screaming. "We are not longer a country that will stand for your demented words of violence & death".

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".

As the New York Times noted,"last month the United States said it would impose sanctions on all exporters of Iranian oil".

"America should know that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars", he said.

"Iran is angry since Trump responded to Tehran's engagement diplomacy by pulling the US out of the nuclear deal", Iranian politician Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh told the AP. The deal saw six countries - the US, UK, France, Germany, Russia and China - agree to lift sanctions against Iran in exchange for limitations on Iran's nuclear program.

A commander in Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards shot back at President Trump's warning to the Islamic Republic about threatening the United States as "psychological warfare", according to a report on Monday.

Did Rouhani respond to Trump's threat?

Washington has also been accused of posting propaganda on social media aimed at stirring up unrest in Iran.

Earlier this month, Israeli officials told reporters that the U.S. and Israel had already formed a "joint working group" created to plot against Iran, and that it's focus was to fuel internal unrest against the government. "The level of corruption and wealth among Iranian leaders shows that Iran is run by something that resembles the mafia more than a government".

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani speaks during a joint press conference with Austria's Chancellor Sebastian Kurz following a meeting on July 4, 2018 at the Chancellery in Vienna. "The United States supports you".

Current and former U.S. officials said the campaign paints Iranian leaders in a harsh light, at times using information that is exaggerated or contradicts other official pronouncements, including comments by previous administrations.

The Trump administration initially planned to shut Iran out of global oil markets completely, demanding all other countries stop buying Iranian crude by November.
