Trump Threatens ‘Obliteration’ of Iran, as Sanctions Dispute Escalates

President Hassan Rouhani of Iran on
Tuesday called the White House “mentally retarded” and vowed that Tehran
would not be intimidated by American sanctions — drawing a blistering
threat of “obliteration” from President Trump.“Any
attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and
overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration,”
Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter, calling Mr. Rouhani’s comments “ignorant and insulting.”
