    Earlier on Sunday, a Twitter exchange between the American president and his Iranian counterpart came into the spotlight, with the former emotionally responding in capitalized letters.

    Democrats have posted a tongue-in-cheek all-caps tweet mocking President Trump’s recent warning to Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani.

    The Democratic camp of the House Foreign Affairs panel asked their readers not to get “distracted by caps,” adding that Iran has no grounds to worry about potential US attacks.

    They further made a point, however, that Russia “did attack” the 2016 presidential race in the United States, alleging that it was to “help” Donald Trump. The Russian side has repeatedly denied these claims. The Democrats referred to Trump, as they put it, “siding with Putin” as “an all-caps-worthy problem,” prompting users to call the post mere “political backfire” and have a decent laugh:

    Some said the Democrats are “taking the side of a sponsor of terror,” presumably referring to their well-levelled words on Iran:

    Rouhani had directed his warning at the US president on Sunday, stating that "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 in all caps, warning Rouhani against "ever threatening the US again," stressing potential dire consequences "the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before."
