The sanctions follow after the president's decision earlier this year to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.

The tweet was reverberating across the Middle East.

On Friday, China said it will not cut Iranian oil imports despite President Trump threatening to sanction any countries that fail to stop importing Iranian oil by November 4, a symbolic date coinciding with the start of what became known as the Iranian hostage crisis.

In May, the United States pulled out of a 2015 deal between world powers and Tehran under which worldwide sanctions were lifted in return for curbs on its nuclear programme.

However, the regime has developed its intelligence network well over the past 40 years, throughout the country, so it is hard for people to protest without risking arrest - or, worse, their lives. If they want to survive, their choice is clear - meet the "great Satan".

Already facing broad economic fallout as their currency implodes, Iranians are wondering how the next phase of the crisis in US relations will play out - and what, exactly, America's long-term strategy is toward their country.

Senior Iranian officials have warned the country would not easily yield to a renewed US campaign to strangle Iran's vital oil exports.

Though the U.S. sanctions post-deal will be unilateral and not as strong as the pre-deal UN-imposed sanctions, fear angering the United States, the world's largest economy, will likely scare off Europeans who are otherwise committed to the deal.

Facing increasing economic difficulties, Iran's lawmakers have given President Hassan Rouhani one month to appear before the parliament in order to answer queries on his government's handling, reported Iran's state media.

The United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Russian Federation - the other signatories to the JCPOA - have criticized America's decision to quit the deal.
