Trump at the UN

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 Two:

  • Trump and his team turned up the heat on North Korea, with the president suggesting in a speech to the UNGA that the U.S. could “destroy” the country; Trump also deployed his “Rocket Man” moniker for dictator Kim Jong-un.
  • Trump also went after Iran in his speech, saying in part that Tehran is “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”; Trump signaled he may exit the Iran nuclear deal.
  • Trump earned some awkward applause when he said the problem in Venezuela “is not that socialism has been poorly implemented but that socialism has been faithfully implemented
  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised President Trump’s speech, and also suggested the UN is taking a turn from an anti-Semitic history
