USA will be forced to 'totally destroy' North Korea, Trump tells UN

Share

In his first address to the United Nations, President Donald Trump on Tuesday called on the world to unite against rogue regimes like North Korea, derided its leader as "rocket man" and warned Kim Jong Un "is on a suicide mission".

Trump further slammed North Korea leader, Kim Jong-un, calling him a "rocket man" who is on a "suicide mission". "Just like you, the leaders of your countries, should and always put your countries first", said Trump, who assured the U.N. that the United States would not abdicate its leadership position in the world but needed other countries to contribute more.

North Korea test-fired a ballistic missile with the range to reach the USA territory of Guam early on Friday, its latest in a series of provocations, and the Trump administration is seeking to extend and strengthen the Iranian nuclear deal that Obama signed and Trump has repeatedly maligned.

North Korea has continued to develop its nuclear and missile programs despite sanctions and global condemnation.

Iranian President Hassan Rohani responded to Trump's criticism by telling reporters the United States would forfeit the world's trust if it exists the 2015 nuclear deal - which also was signed by France, Britain, Russia, China, and Germany.

"It is an outrage that some nations would not only trade with such a regime but would arm, supply and financially support a country that imperils the world with nuclear conflict", he said.

That would be a monumental task for an experienced Power Five program to play those two programs on consecutive weeks. The Longhorns (1-2) have an open date in Week 4 before returning to the field on September 28 at Iowa State.

Trump laid out his "America First" vision of foreign policy, arguing all countries - including the USA - should serve the interests of their own people and uphold their sovereignty. "The U.S.is ready, willing and able".

The President will also join other world leaders at the welcoming reception to be hosted by UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, and hold a bilateral meeting with the UN chief.

He's going to try to make the case that member nations serve the interests of their own citizens when they work together and share in the burden of fighting terrorism, of propping up destabilized.

Mr Trump frequently belittled the United Nations as a candidate and some within his White House believe the United Nations acts as a global bureaucracy that infringes on the sovereignty of individual countries.

It's not clear that Mr Trump understood that.

Mr. Trump delivers his "America First" message to the global body, saying "I will always put America first just like you as the leaders of your countries will always and should always put your countries first". In that way, the official argued, asking for other nations to take part in collective action was consistent with Trump's "America First" approach.

"I don't think you've heard the end of it", Trump said.

The United States and North Korea have had escalating tensions in recent months.

The administration must decide in mid-October whether it will certify that Iran is still in compliance with the agreement.

Mr. Trump embraces the idea of "mutual respect" between nations to allow "individuals to flourish in the fullness of the life intended by God".

"Strong sovereign nations let their people take ownership of their future, and control their own destiny". Macron has been trying to convince Trump to reverse the decision he made earlier this year to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement.

The speech will have raised eyebrows among the US's traditional, globalist allies in Europe, Canada, and the rest of the English-speaking world. "Big day at the United Nations - many good things, and some tricky ones, happening", he tweeted.
