Late Sunday night President Donald Trump sent out an all-caps threat on Twitter to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in response to remarks he made over the weekend.

In the tweet, Trump addressed the Iranian president and promised “consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before” should Iran continue to “threaten” the United States.
