Trump Touts 'America First' At The United Nations

The corrupt dictatorship in Iran, ' said Trump.

In President Donald Trump's Tuesday morning speech at the United Nations he affirmed that the United States "reject [s] the ideology of globalism", and instead embraces "the doctrine of patriotism".

He says the United States will never tell other nations how to live, work or worship - but says the US expects other nations to "honor America's sovereignty in return".

Responding to the laughs, Trump said, "Didn't expect that reaction, but that's OK".

"OPEC and OPEC nations are as usual ripping off the rest of the world", Trump said.

He calls the deal the "worst diplomatic debacle in American history" and says it failed to curb Iran's nuclear weapons program in the speech that coincides with the annual U.N. General Assembly.

World leaders and diplomats laughed at President Donald Trump's speech at the United Nations General Assembly in NY on Tuesday after he claimed his administration has accomplished more than any other in USA history.

He further said that all the nations should isolate Iran's leadership and vowed to impose more sanction on Iran in November.

Iran's behavior will also be a major focus Wednesday when Trump leads a meeting of the U.N. Security Council.

Trump had also mocked Kim with the moniker "Rocket Man".

He again promoted the ideals of isolationism while also laying into nations like Iran, for its perceived aggression towards the United States, and China, for its continuing role in what Trump has labelled an out-and-out trade war. But he added that much work remains to be done.

Tehran has emphasized that it will stay in the nuclear accord only if it is provided with "practical guarantees" that its economic dividends of the deal will remain intact.

He said that preventing Iran from exporting oil would be "very unsafe".

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani also blamed USA -backed Persian Gulf state actors for a terrorist attack at a parade that killed almost 30 people over the weekend. "And if they don't undertake that, they will face more consequences, because we will find more sanctions to impose and other ways to put maximum pressure on them".

But the populist leader was comparatively subdued a year after he stunned the global body with his bellicose language on North Korea, including a threat to "totally destroy" Kim Jong-un's state.
