Trump says he won't impose USA values overseas

Haley Mattis Has Plenty of Options for North Korea

Shortly before Trump's speech, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres appealed from the General Assembly lectern for statesmanship to avoid war with North Korea.

"I am against such threats", Merkel said in an interview with the radio station Deutsche Welle.

Mr Trump, who has previously warned of "fire and fury" if Pyongyang does not back down, claimed "no one has shown more contempt for other nations and for the wellbeing of their own people than the depraved regime in North Korea".

For a red-state campaign rally, President Trump's speech to the United Nations was a stirring package of moralistic rhetoric, nationalistic posturing and self-righteous rage.

Merkel gave notice that Germany would not watch passively as the North Korean crisis unfolded.

His advisers say he is concerned about North Korea's advances in missile technology and the few means available for a peaceful response without China's help. "And this is why I am ready - and the foreign minister (Social Democrat Sigmar Gabriel) is ready - to assume my responsibilities".

Donald Trump has used his first address to the UN General Assembly to make clear that the United States may have no choice but to "totally destroy" North Korea.

Trump's harshest rhetoric was reserved for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

If the USA is "forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea", he said.

Trump also said the Iranian government is an "economically depleted rogue state" whose chief export is violence. To keep control of and unify the populace, the regime has kept alive the memories of the Korean War, when the USA destroyed 80 percent of all the buildings in the North and killed as many as 20 percent of its people.

No pressure to win trophies at Liverpool FC, says Klopp
However, he also says: "From today's perspective yes, we have the resources, but we will see how it is again in January". Klopp believes Liverpool's squad is equipped to handle the challenge of competing on four fronts this season.

The president touched on a broad spectrum of topics, from the recent spate of deadly hurricanes to his vision of "America First" and the concept of sovereignty, which observers saw as the beginnings of a Trump Doctrine. But while Trump praised some United Nations programs, time and time again they seemed clearly grounded in a philosophy of "what's in it for us" that seemed to set aside the values of community and common interests on which the United Nations was founded.

"We can no longer be taken advantage of or enter into a one-sided deal in which the United States gets nothing in return", he said. Indeed, Trump made it clear that he is putting America first and foremost. He accused Tehran of squandering Iran's wealth by supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad, Lebanon's Hezbollah militia and Yemen's Houthi rebel group.

The speech drew varying reactions from leaders.

In Venezuela, opposition leaders welcomed the attention the country has received at the United Nations. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a Trump ally, wrote on Twitter, "In over 30 years in my experience with the United Nations, I never heard a bolder or more courageous speech". "Whether this will make for a safer and more secure world remains to be seen". "It's yet another sign that we're in a unsafe new phase in North Korea and other countries are going to have to step up because the United States isn't leading".
