Donald Trump Just Got Laughed At By The Entire United Nations

  • President Trump closed the door on a meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at the United Nations General Assembly

Tensions with North Korea have eased since last year's General Assembly, when Trump called Kim Jong Un "rocket man," and threatened to "totally destroy" the country if it threatened the US or its allies.

China was another target for Mr Trump's ire during his speech, stating the USA will no longer tolerate trade arrangements it sees as unfair.

The president took a more serious tone when discussing Iranian leadership, accusing the regime of fueling and financing the humanitarian crisis in Syria.

In May, Mr Trump withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal - officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action which reduced sanctions on Iran in exchange for curbing their nuclear program - because he said they had continued nuclear proliferation and considered it a bad deal.

But Trump's bombastic foreign policy has faced significant criticism at home and overseas, and polls have shown a that majority of Americans surveyed feel the U.S. has lost respect worldwide under his leadership.

Trump also said that foreign aid would now only be given to "friends" from now on.

Indeed, the absence of bombshells like last year's made Trump's speech this time nearly boring by comparison.

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday urged heavy pressure both on Iran and Washington's trading partners as he offered a robust defence of the US right to go it alone.

"In less than 2 years my administration has accomplished more than nearly any administration in the history of our country", boasted Trump.

One of his key themes, however, was the right of America to pursue its own path in the world.

Trump had called Kim a "rocket man" bent on nuclear destruction in his United Nations speech previous year.

In his UN address past year, Trump bashed the nuclear deal as "an embarrassment", signalling that the United States was ready to walk away.

As signs of progress, Trump cited North Korea's suspension of nuclear and ballistic missile tests, the ongoing dismantlement of "some military facilities", the release of American prisoners, and the return of the remains of American troops killed in the 1950-53 Korean War. "The sanctions will stay in place until denuclearization occurs".

In the speech, Mr Trump's second before the UN General Assembly, he defended his tough stance on trade with China.
