Trump Touts 'America First' At The United Nations

Donald Trump Just Got Laughed At By The Entire United Nations

Donald Trump Just Got Laughed At By The Entire United Nations

Only U.S. President Donald Trump, who chaired the session, spoke against the deal known as the JCPOA and appeared isolated as a result, Rouhani said.

He also touted progress made on border security and denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.

But Macron said he was convinced that they all "retain the same objective in mind - namely, preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons and guaranteeing strict worldwide control on the peaceful use of their nuclear program". "Rather it is a symptom of the weakness of intellect - it betrays an inability in understanding a complex and interconnected world", he said.

"Iran's leaders sow chaos, death and destruction", Trump told the UN General Assembly in a 34-minute speech that was more critical of Iran than any other country.

Since withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, the US has reimposed sanctions on the regime, and Trump is urging reluctant partners to do the same.

Addressing the council, Trump called the JCPOA a "horrible one-sided deal", declaring that Iran "must never be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon" and accusing its government of exporting "violence, terror and turmoil".

Trump also repeated a threat to punish any person or company that does business with Iran in violation of renewed USA sanctions.

Rouhani suggested that Iran was unfazed by the bombastic rhetoric from top Trump advisers, but said Iran has no wish to go war with the United States.

"I didn't expect that reaction, but that's OK", he said.

Key Republican senators go cold on Kavanaugh
There were also lingering questions about whether Deborah Ramirez , Kavanaugh's second accuser, would testify. Christine Blasey Ford has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault during a party when they were in high school.

Speaking before entering talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in New York, Trump said that it was a "dream" of his to bring about a peaceful solution to a conflict that has eluded several of his predecessors.

"In the years since the deal was signed, Iran's aggression only increased", Trump said.

Likewise, national security adviser John Bolton, speaking at the United Against Nuclear Iran conference Tuesday, threatened that the United States would use all tools at its disposal to go after Qasem Soleimani, the leader of the Quds Force of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, and said USA troops would not leave Syria until Iranian soldiers have all returned to Iran. The president explicitly rejected "the ideology of globalism" in globalism's high temple and proposed in its place the "doctrine of patriotism". "And we ask all nations to support Iran's people as they struggle to reclaim their religious and righteous destiny".

"It will take a while; there will be a process to this", Pompeo said.

In his address previous year to the UN, Trump insulted Kim as a "rocket man" bent on nuclear destruction.

Mr Trump chose to pull the USA from the Iran deal, and defended that decision on Tuesday during his speech to the UN.

He called Monday's decision by the five other signatories to the agreement who still support it - Russia, China, Britain France and Germany - to establish a financial facility in the European Union to facilitate payments for Iranian imports and exports "a very good step forward".

The president blasted OPEC for high oil prices, announced new sanctions against Venezuela, and warned the USA will withhold aid from countries that challenge his agenda.
