It’s President Trump’s first UN General Assembly (UNGA) meeting. Here’s what he and his team are up to on the first day of the New York event.
President Trump is leading the U.S. delegation to the 72nd United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York City this week. According to a post on WhiteHouse.gov, the president and his team “will attend dozens of bilateral and multilateral meetings.”
Here’s what has happened so far on Day One:
- Trump says we must rid the UN of “bureaucracy and mismanagement”; Trump also commended the Secretary General for recent reforms to the UN and called to make sure “no one and no member state shoulders a disproportionate share of the burden“
- Trump will address UNGA on Tuesday morning, and is expected to focus on the recent provocations from the North Korean regime
- Robert Lighthizer, the U.S. trade representative for Trump, said China is “substantially more difficult” than any other trade challenge for the world
- Iran President Hassan Rouhani said there will be a “high cost” if the U.S. exits Iran deal
- White House economic advisor Gary Cohn told others at UNGA that the U.S. is still planning to exit the Paris climate deal, despite reporting to the contrary over the weekend
