'War with Iran, mother of all wars': Rouhani to Trump
President Trump's response came after Rouhani earlier in the day issued his own warning to the US leader not to "play with the lion's tail," saying that conflict with Iran would be the "mother of all wars". The high-stakes verbal sparring is reminiscent of the exchanges Trump had last year with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un before tensions eased between the two leaders.
