President Trump on Wednesday warned Iranian President Hassan Rouhani against making threats after Rouhani said his country will take steps toward expanding its uranium stockpile even further beyond limits set under the 2015 nuclear deal.

"Iran has just issued a New Warning. Rouhani says that they will Enrich Uranium to 'any amount we want' if there is no new Nuclear Deal. Be careful with the threats, Iran. They can come back to bite you like nobody has been bitten before!" Trump tweeted.

The president's barb - coupled with Iran's pledge to enrich more uranium - is the latest sign of escalating tensions between the two nations over the Obama-era nuclear deal, from which Trump withdrew the U.S. last year.

Iran on Monday announced its low-enriched uranium stockpile had exceeded limits set in the deal, which was designed to prevent Tehran from developing nuclear weapons in exchange for sanctions relief.

The move was a bid to persuade Europe, Russia and China to follow through on sanctions relief, but the Trump administration responded by saying its "maximum pressure" campaign would remain.
