President Trump at UN: US May Have to Totally Destroy NKorea
Tuesday morning, US President Donald Trump warned that the United States will be forced to “totally destroy” North Korea unless Pyongyang backs down from its nuclear challenge.
Adding, NKorean leader Kim Jong Un is a “rocket man” on a suicide mission.
President Trump issued his sternest warning yet to NKorea, whose ballistic missile launches and nuclear tests have rattled the Globe, caused much discomfort in the hall.
Unless NKorea backs down, he said, “We will have no choice than to totally destroy North Korea.”
“Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime,” he said.
He urged UN member states to work together to isolate the Kim government until it ceases its “hostile” behavior.
Turning to Iran, President Trump said the Y 2015 nuclear deal negotiated by his predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama, was an embarrassment and hinted that he may not re-certify the agreement when it comes up for a mid-October deadline.
“I don’t think you’ve heard the last of it,” he said.
He called Iran an “economically depleted rogue state” that exports violence.
The speech marked President Trump’s laying out his America First vision for a US foreign policy aimed at downgrading global bureaucracies, basing alliances on shared interests, and steering Washington away from nation-building exercises abroad.
President Trump told world leaders and diplomats at the 193-member global body that the United States does not seek to impose its will on other nations and will respect other countries’ sovereignty.
“I will defend America’s interests above all else,” he said. “But in fulfilling our obligations to other nations we also realize it’s in everyone’s interest to seek a future where all nations can be sovereign, prosperous and secure.”
President Trump said the US military would soon be the strongest it has ever been and getting stronger.
Turning to Venezuela, President Trump called the collapsing situation there “completely unacceptable” and said, “We cannot stand by and watch.”
