In a tweet responding to Trump's offer, an adviser to President Rouhani later said Iran would be open for talks only if the US "return [s] to the nuclear deal" and respects "the Iranian nation's rights", per a BBC translation.
Rouhani had warned the USA that hostile policies could trigger the "mother of all wars", after which Trump tweeted in all-caps: "NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE". It was a ridiculous deal.
Iran's OPEC governor, Hossein Kazempour Ardebili, told Reuters on Tuesday that Trump was mistaken to expect Saudi Arabia and other oil producers to compensate for losses of Iranian oil caused by us sanctions.
In a meeting with Britain's ambassador Tuesday, Rouhani called America's abandonment of the nuclear deal "illegal", declaring that "the ball is in Europe's court now".
Since Trump withdrew the U.S. from the JCPOA, the nuclear deal which guaranteed Iran some sanctions relief in exchange for a halt on nuclear weapons development, Pompeo's State Department has kept up its pressure campaign against Iran's government.

In May, Mr Trump called the nuclear accord - or Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) - a "horrible, one-sided deal". It is getting ever clearer that these USA measures are no longer merely aimed at changing Iran's behavior but instead at regime change.
Relations of the two nations have been at odds as the Trump administration pulled the United States out of the historic 2015 Iran nuclear deal in May.
On Monday, he said that he would be willing to meet Rouhani without preconditions to discuss how to improve relations.
"Today, negotiations with the US bring humiliation", he said Tuesday according to the official Islamic Republic News Agency. With all the conditions subsequently added, however, it's likely that the Iranian government's reticence will seem more well-founded to a public eager for a diplomatic path to normalization.
Hours before Trump's statement, Iran's foreign ministry ruled out the possibility of negotiations with the US government over the enduring bilateral problems. The deal saw Tehran accept unprecedented curbs and inspections on its nuclear program in exchange for billions of dollars in sanctions relief.
