And John Bolton, the president's national security adviser, is a well-known Iran hawk who has advocated for regime change.

Sporadic protests broke out in several cities in Iran for a fifth night on Saturday, a day after demonstrators attacked a Shiite seminary, according to Iranian news agencies and social media.

Supporters of the Iran agreement have long argued that the US departure would alienate European allies who partnered with the U.S.in the negotiations.

Trump made the statement ahead of USA sanctions against Iran, which are set to go into effect on Monday.

Trump's policies are already putting significant pressure on the Iranian economy, although US intelligence suggests they may ultimately rally Iranians against the United States and strengthen Iran's hardline rulers, officials say.

Iran had hoped the lifting of sanctions would allow it to replace its aging commercial airline fleet, but the USA withdrawal has halted billion-dollar deals struck with Airbus and Boeing.

In May, the United States pulled out of a 2015 deal between world powers and Tehran under which global sanctions were lifted in return for curbs on its nuclear programme. "That's the behavioral change that we're looking for from the Iranian regime".

Republican Senator Rand Paul supports Trump’s Supreme Court nominee
Bush White House, probably in the hopes of finding incriminating information that could derail his Supreme Court nomination. Paul cited concerns over "privacy" and "the Fourth Amendment" as being the basis for hesitating to back Kavanaugh.

The president also issued an all-caps threat to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani last month, warning him not to threaten the US or "YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE".

Motahari, renowned for not mincing his words, has dismissed Jafari's remarks as unwarranted, reiterating, "You [Gen.] and our other good "mujahid" brothers in IRGC are aware of the fact that in issues concerning talks with the United States, or refrain from any negotiations with it, IRGC should obey the decision made by top authorities of the regime and avoid making personal comments".

The exercise could shut down of the Strait of Hormuz, a crucial Gulf passage for shipments of numerous commodities.

People in Shiraz, Isfahan, Mashhad, Karaj, Ahvaz, and Rasht joined the protests that started on Tuesday mainly in Karaj and Isfahan over high inflation and unemployment.

The administration has said a second batch of sanctions will be revived in November.

Since the beginning of 2018, Iranians have been protesting against rising prices, growing power cuts, water shortages and alleged corruption.

Footage posted online showed dozens of marchers in central Tehran chanting, "Death to the dictator", referring to supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. In August and November Iran faces two new waves of sanctions that will shut off their access to USA banking and oil exports.
