Iran’s Rouhani: ‘No need to respond to Trump’s empty threats’

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has said there’s no need to respond to US President Donald Trump’s “empty threats.” Rouhani’s remarks Wednesday were his first since Trump warned the Iranian leader of dire consequences for threatening the US, AP reported. Iran’s president told his Cabinet that there are “baseless comments and empty threats by some US leaders.” Rouhani said that “there is no need for us to respond to any nonsensical comment and answer back to them.” He added: “We should respond to them with action.”
