Donald Trump: Tweets threat “Never threaten the United States again!

Though Donald Trump reportedly privately told his cabinet members that he doesn’t want a war with Iran, on Sunday he ramped up with rhetoric with a heated tweet that promised “the official end of Iran” “if Iran wants to fight” and warned, “Never threaten the United States again!”

Trump’s tweet came hours after a rocket, apparently targeting the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, landed less than a mile from the building. According to an Iraqi military spokesman, the rocket was apparently launched from east Baghdad, an area populated by a number of Shiite militias linked to the Iranian government.

When Trump was asked Thursday whether the U.S. was headed to war with Iran, he answered, “I hope not.” (FOX News)
