'That's what happens when you listen to the mustache!' Iranian adviser mocks Trump for taking advice from hardliner John Bolton as president threatens to deploy 'a hell of a lot' of troops if U.S. interests are attacked

An adviser to Iran's president mocked Donald Trump as being the poodle of his hardline national security adviser John Bolton Tuesday, as tensions with the U.S. in the Persian Gulf increased.

Hessamoddin Ashena, an adviser to Iranian president Hassan Rouhani tweeted: 'You wanted a better deal with Iran. Looks like you are going to get a war instead. That's what happens when you listen to the mustache. Good luck in 2020!'

The mustache was a reference to Bolton, Trump's 70-year-old neo-conservative aide who was once a vocal advocate of war on Iraq and is now seen as a hardline voice on Iran.

The mockery aimed at Trump came as the U.S. president knocked down a report that the Pentagon has presented the White House with a plan to deploy 120,000 troops to the Middle East if Iran attacks U.S. forces – then said he would send 'a hell of a lot more' if it came to that.
