Donald Trump Literally Laughed At By World Leaders During United Nations Speech

Share

Speaking before the UN General Assembly in New York City overnight, Trump made the claim that "In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than nearly any administration in the history of our country". The President then moved on with a typically shambolic word-vomitorium, in which he alternately attacked one of the women accusing SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault and promised to always act exclusively in America's interests rather than the world's.

While the president's approach to North Korea has softened, his attitude toward Iran has not.

United States national security adviser John Bolton, however, is due to warn Iranian leaders that they do not trust the regime and there will be consequences for aggression.

In his second address to the UN General Debate, Trump said that in the last one year, the United States has, with support from many countries like South Korea, Japan and China, "engaged with North Korea to replace the spectre of conflict with a bold and new push for peace".

Trump also thanked the worldwide community for its support in the denuclearization campaign, singling out South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese President Xi Jinping. In his own speech, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani slammed the economic sanctions laid on his nation by the US.

Hours before Iranian President Hassan Rouhani takes the same rostrum, Trump denounced the clerical regime as sowing "chaos, death, and destruction" and doubled down on the United States withdrawal of an worldwide agreement on curbing Tehran's nuclear programme.

Meanwhile, ahead of Mr. Trump's U.N. Security Council meeting on Iran, Pomepo condemned President Hassan Rouhani's comments before the global body in which he compared Mr. Trump's "tendencies" to a "Nazi disposition".

"So true", Mr. Trump said of America's progress.

Trump defended his aggressive use of tariffs, against not only China but also close allies like Canada and the European Union.

Trump said the isolation could be achieved by denying Tehran funds to continue sponsoring terrorism. In July at a summit in Helsinki, Trump accepted Russian President Vladimir Putin's denials and the USA president describes investigations as a political witch hunt.

Chairing a session on weapons of mass destruction, he defended re-imposing sanctions on Iran because of its "malign conduct".

"Moving forward, we are only going to give foreign aid to those who respect us and frankly our - our friends", he said.
