Iran has faced increased USA pressure and possible sanctions since Trump's decision in May to withdraw the United States from a 2015 global agreement over Iran's nuclear program.

Wicker, who sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee, opposed the controversial Iranian deal under the Obama administration and supported Trump for withdrawing from it in May.

"Mr. Trump, don't play with the lion's tail, this would lead only to regret", Iran's president said.

"War with Iran is an idea that has a lot of support among conservatives and members of Trump's cabinet".

One of Trump's many criticisms of the accord, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was that it did not do enough to stop Iran from funding extremist groups throughout the Middle East.

The US has intensified its efforts to squeeze Iran, the world's fourth-largest oil producer, out of the global oil market by threatening its European allies with secondary sanctions unless they cut all imports of Iranian oil by November 4. "BE CAUTIOUS!", he wrote. He also said the government has "heartlessly repressed its own people's human rights, dignity and fundamental freedoms".

"I think that the Iranian people would like to have good relations with the United States", says Wicker.

Pompeo added that Iran should halt production of long-range missiles, end its uranium enrichment program and agree to unlimited inspections of its nuclear facilities. A review of the US State Department's Farsi-language Twitter account and its ShareAmerica website reveals a number of posts critical of Tehran over the last month.

"You can not provoke the Iranian people against their own security and interests", he said in a televised speech at a gathering of Iranian diplomats in Tehran. "Americans should know that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace", he added.

Trump's decision in May to leave the agreement shows that it's Trump's government that's isolated, the Iranian president said.

Iranian officials have in the past threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz in retaliation for any hostile U.S. action.

On Sunday, Rouhani made a televised address in which he warned Trump not to escalate tensions with Iran.

Pompeo also slammed Iran's political, judicial and military officials, accusing several by name of participating in rampant corruption, and called its religious leaders "hypocritical holy men" who amassed wealth while allowing their people to suffer.
