President Donald Trump took to Twitter late Sunday night to issue a warning against Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

The tweet, which was typed entirely in caps lock, directly warned Rouhani against threatening the United States, this after the Iranian President had lashed out at the U.S. over the weekend.

“NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS,” Trump exclaimed.

“America should know peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars,” Rouhani had said over the weekend.

“Mr. Trump, don’t play with the lion’s tail. This would only lead to regret,” Rouhani also said, according to the official government news agency IRNA. Rouhani was speaking at a July 22 gathering of Iranian diplomats.

“We’ve become more united than before. Threats bring us together,” Rohani said, adding that “we will definitely defeat America.”

The verbal backlash comes after Trump announced in May that the U.S. was exiting the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and would reimpose sanctions against Iran.
