Trump at UNGA: US rejects globalism, embraces patriotism

Donald Trump inks his first trade deal with South Korea

The president pointed to the Iranian regime's out-of-control global terrorist financing and its proliferation and acquisition of the "planet's most risky weapons".

"The campaign of pressure against Iran is driven in part by Middle Eastern friends of the Trump administration who wish to draw the U.S. into an active confrontation with Iran", said Countryman who now heads the Arms Control Association pressure group.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani delivered a broadside at the USA during his speech at the UN General Assembly.

"Confronting multilateralism is not a sign of strength".

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 United States has lost respect worldwide under his leadership.

Touting the Paris climate agreement that Trump withdrew from previous year, Guterres said the world risks consequences if leaders do not act quickly on the problem.

Foes for decades, Washington and Teheran have been increasingly at odds since May, when the Republican US president pulled out of the 2015 worldwide nuclear deal with Iran and announced sanctions against the Opec member.

"America is governed by Americans", he said. "We reject the ideology of globalism, and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism".

"We will not be governed by an global body that is unaccountable to our own citizens", Trump declared.

Bill Cosby sentenced to prison for sex assault
Cosby's lawyers asked for house arrest, saying Cosby - who is legally blind - is too old and helpless to do time in prison. Ms Constand, now 45, said she has suffered with anxiety and self-doubt for years in a statement submitted to the court.

"There is no way forward but collective, common-sense action for the common good", he said. "Our children are watching".

Regarding Iran, the president indicated he won't be meeting with the Islamic Republic's leader, President Hassan Rouhani, until his nation renounced its "bloody agenda".

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

The remark led to some murmuring and laughter in the crowd, taking the president slightly aback.

"America is-so true", he said, smiling and pausing for more laughter from the General Assembly.

Trump attempted to drive a wedge between Iran's leadership and its people, days after an attack in southwestern Iran on a military parade killed 25 people and unsettled the country.

"We cannot allow a regime that chants death to America and that threatens Israel with annihilation to possess the means to deliver a nuclear warhead to any city on earth - just can't do it", he said. Though he held out the possibility of a better relationship in the future, he made clear economic pressure on Iran would not abate.

President Donald Trump ripped the Iranian government in an address to the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, calling on world leaders to isolate Tehran and vowing to impose further sanctions on the country.

Trump further accused Iran of having a "bloody agenda" in Yemen and Syria, which is why the U.S. was using "economic pressure" to deny Iran the money it needs to finance these operations.

United States crude falls 32 cents after Trump's latest Twitter warning to OPEC
OPEC members will meet with non-Opec countries, such as Russian Federation , over the weekend to examine their production quotas. Squabbles over "violations" of the supply deal, or debates about how to measure compliance rates, are largely background noise.

The gathering, also attended by the likes of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Mossad Director Yossi Cohen, was not without incident. Foes for decades, Washington and Tehran have been increasingly at odds since May. But even as the president champions what he calls America's "sovereignty", aides insist his strategy is not simply go-it-alone.

US President Donald Trump asks worldwide community to isolate Iran US President Donald Trump begins his speech.

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

Trump's remarks on North Korea were dramatically different from those in his speech past year at the United Nations assembly, when he threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea and mocked the North Korean leader as "Rocket Man" on a "suicide mission".

In addition to getting other countries to commit more money for security, the United States president stressed that his administration would continue its fight against trade abuses, pointing a finger at China.

The two leaders are trying to arrange a second summit and are exchanging private correspondence. "That was a very risky time", Trump said.

"The United States is working with the Gulf Cooperation Council, Jordan, and Egypt to establish a strategic alliance so Middle Eastern nations can advance security and stability across their home region", he added.

Trump did not apologize for calling on other nations to share more of the costs of U.N. activities and global aid.
