To Iranian President Rouhani: Another Trump tweet gets the meme treatment
NEVER, EVER THREATEN TO STEAL A CHIP FROM MY PLATE AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES.
Donald Trump has once again become a figure of fun online for a recent all-caps tweet to Iran’s president.
The US president’s tweet was a response to comments made by Iranian leader Hassan Rouhani about America’s withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear agreement between the two countries.

Rouhani told a gathering of diplomats: “America should know that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars.”
Trump responded with a furious, all-caps tweet warning Rouhani to “never, ever threaten the United States again”.
To Iranian President Rouhani: 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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 23, 2018
The threatening tweet was interpreted with humour by some on Twitter, who used various forms of meme to make fun of the US president.

By far the most popular meme involved people using the tweet format to make other kinds of complaint, quote films and songs, or make jokes.

Others referenced Trump’s recent climbdown from his press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He said he had misspoken when he said he saw no reason to believe Russia had interfered in the 2016 US presidential election.

He meant to say “wouldn’t”
...sorry, is that never ever DON’T threaten the United States? Its hard to keep track of when you mean what you say and when you mean the exact opposite.— Andrew P Street (@AndrewPStreet) July 23, 2018
Once again, the internet has proven its ability to turn any situation into a subject of fun.
