Early Monday morning, Texas Congressman Joaquin Castro (D-San Antonio) admonished President Donald Trump’s decorum and strikingly hostile tweet threatening Iran’s President Hasan Rouhani with “consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered.”

Naturally, the antagonistic language of Trump’s tweet caused a bit of a panic amongst Americans concerned about the president aggressing conflict.
The tense rhetoric is just the latest since the president withdrew from an Obama era, multi-national nuclear deal with Iran in May.

Rouhani responded to Trump's tweet saying that the U.S. "must understand that war with Iran is the mother of all wars and peace with Iran is the mother of all peace," according to the Associated Press. He continued with a sharp warning "do not play with the lions tail, or else you will regret it eternally."

The San Antonio representative also called on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment, the removal of a President from office when he is deemed unfit for his job.
