Will Trump ever have a Twitter of sense?
Fresh from his Helsinki love-in with Putin, Donald Trump has turned his sights on Iran.
Taking umbrage at a message from the Iranians warning him "not to play with the lion's tail", he shot back via Twitter, advising them (in a capped up tweet) not to threaten America... "OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE".
Wow! That's telling them. Except it doesn't actually suggest a dignified world leader making his point firmly. It sounds more like something an angry parent would shout at a teenager who'd left his bedroom a tip.
