Trump UNGA speech claim prompts laughter from leaders

On Tuesday, President Hassan Rouhani stated at the UN General Assembly session that if the USA wants to return to the JCPOA and cooperate, it should know that "it would be much easier to return to six months ago than six years back".

President Donald Trump said the numerous accusations of sexual assault that have been made against him over the years affect the way he views allegations against other men, including his Supreme Court pick.

"We do not wish to go to war with American forces in the region", Rouhani told a news conference.

"Iran's leaders sow chaos, death and destruction", Trump said.

World leaders and diplomats laughed after Trump boasted that his administration had accomplished more than nearly any other in United States history.

He said: "We are standing up for America and for the American people, and we are also standing up for the world".

Rouhani voiced regret that the deal, negotiated under former president Barack Obama, had become a "toy" of United States domestic politics and accused Trump of seeking to overthrow his government.

Tensions between the United States and the European Union over Iran soared into the open on Tuesday after the Europeans announced plans for a legal framework to preserve business with Tehran and evade new U.S. sanctions. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo released a report that the State Department said detailed Iran's malign behavior.

Since then, the Trump administration has slapped a number of sanctions on Iran while vowing to apply more in November.

Wednesday's meeting highlighted a rift between the United States and its European allies over the Iran nuclear deal. After that, the United States will pursue additional sanctions, tougher than ever before, to counter the entire range of Iran's malign conduct. "So true", the president said, eliciting several muffled laughs.

Trump often criticized former President Barack Obama's approach to foreign affairs and claimed the world was "laughing" at the U.S. under Obama's leadership. "If we do not increase our collective efforts to preserve and build on what we have, there is a very real risk these gains will subside or fall away". "America in Syria, the presence is illegal", he said.

"A regime with this track record must never be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon", Trump said, as he justified his decision to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal, and to reimpose economic sanctions. "The world is watching", he said, also thanking Turkey for its role in brokering a civilian buffer zone.

Bolton said the U.S. would be equally hard on Iran's "enablers". Other US officials briefed reporters on Iran and its activities. "We only ask that you honor our sovereignty in return".
