Trump Slams Iran at UN Speech

The president pulled no punches when going after the adversarial regime.

President Trump, speaking to the United Nations on Tuesday, went after adversaries of the United States. Prominent among these opponents, the president dedicated almost five minutes of his speech to slamming the Iranian regime for its human rights abuses, nuclear program, and sponsorship of terrorism.

Trump called Tehran “a reckless regime, one that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing death to America, destruction for Israel, and ruin for many nations in this room.”

“The Iranian government masks a corrupt dictatorship behind the false guise of a democracy,” he said.

The president demanded that Iran halt its funding of terror groups like Hezbollah and the continuation of its nuclear program.

The nuclear deal between the Untied States and Iran also found itself in Trump’s line of fire. The president repeated his criticism of the accord, “The Iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.”
