UN Laughs at Trump for Boasting During Assembly Speech

Trump said in a posting on Twitter.

"We reject the ideology of globalism", Trump said.

Trump, speaking before the United Nations General Assembly today, began his speech by patting his administration on the back, touting the fight against the so-called Islamic State and America's economy, among other things.

Responding to the laughs, Trump said, "Didn't expect that reaction, but that's OK".

"They do not respect their neighbours or borders or the sovereign rights of nations".

"OPEC and OPEC nations are as usual ripping off the rest of the world", Trump said.

President Donald Trump offered a broad condemnation of globalism at the United Nations on Tuesday, telling the global body that the United States would protect its sovereignty and national interests - and that the other countries of the world should do the same.

He further said that all the nations should isolate Iran's leadership and vowed to impose more sanction on Iran in November.

It'll be Trump's first experience in leading a session of the U.N.'s most powerful body, where the USA now holds the rotating presidency - a perch it is using to double down on its criticism of Iran.

"Imposing sanctions on Iran to prevent us from selling our oil will be very risky".

"I would like to thank Chairman Kim for his courage and for the steps he has taken, though much work remains to be done". Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime.

"When we do, we will find new avenues for cooperation unfolding before us".

"Although the United States has withdrawn from the deal, yet we are still committed to it", he stressed.

In his UN address previous year, Trump bashed the nuclear deal as "an embarrassment", signalling that the United States was ready to walk away.

Sanctions, he said, would stay in place until North Korea's "denuclearisation occurs".

But implementation of the deal stalled as the United States demanded a full declaration of North Korea's nuclear arsenal and the North insisted on jointly declaring an end to the Korean War, which ended only with an armistice, not a peace treaty.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that in private messages from Kim Jong Un to President Donald Trump, the North Korean dictator has been "very consistent" that he's "intent on denuclearizing" the Korean Peninsula.
