President Donald Trump’s full speech at the UNGA


ADDRESS THE ASSEMBLY. YOU HAVE THE FLOOR, SIR.>>MADAM PRESIDENT, MR. SECRETARY GENERAL, WORLD LEADERS, AMBASSADORS, AND EXTINGUISHED DELEGATES. ONE YEAR AGO I STOOD BEFORE YOU FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THIS GRAND HALL. I ADDRESSED THE THREATS FACING OUR WORLD AND I PRESENTED A VISION TO ACHIEVE A BRIGHTER FUTURE FOR ALL OF HUMANITY. TODAY I STAND BEFORE THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO SHARE THE EXTRA ORDINARY PROGRESS WE’VE MADE. IN LESS THAN TWO YEARS MY ADMINISTRATION HAS ACCOMPLISHED MORE THAN ALMOST ANY ADMINISTRATION IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY. AMERICA’S SO TRUE. DIDN’T EXPECT THAT REACTION, BUT THAT’S OKAY. AMERICA’S ECONOMY IS BOOMING LIKE NEVER BEFORE. SINCE MY ELECTION, WE’VE ADDED $10 MILLION IN WEALTH. THE STOCK MARKET IS AT AN ALL-TIME HIGH IN HISTORY AND JOBLESS CLAIMS ARE AT A 50-YEAR LOW. AFRICAN-AMERICAN, HISPANIC-AMERICAN, AND OTHERS HAVE ACHIEVED THEIR LOWEST LEVELS RECORDED. WE’VE ADDED FOUR MILLION NEW JOBS, INCLUDING HALF A MILLION MANUFACTURING JOBS. WE HAVE PASSED THE BIGGEST TAX CUTS AND REFORMS IN AMERICAN HISTORY. WE’VE STARTED THE CONSTRUCTION OF A MAJOR BORDER WALL AND WE HAVE GREAT STRENGTHENED BORDER SECURITY. WE HAVE SECURED RECORD FUNDING FOR OUR MILITARY. $700 BILLION THIS YEAR, AND $716 BILLION NEXT YEAR. OUR MILITARY WILL SOON BE MORE POWERFUL THAN IT HAS EVER BEEN BEFORE. IN OTHER WORDS, THE UNITED STATES IS STRONGER, SAFER, AND A RICHER COUNTRY THAN IT WAS WHEN I ASSUMED OFFICE LESS THAN TWO YEARS ALTHOUGH. WE ARE STANDING UP FOR AMERICA, AND FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND WE ARE ALSO STANDING UP FOR THE WORLD. THIS IS GREAT NEWS FOR OUR CITIZENS. AND FOR PEACE-LOVING PEOPLE EVERYWHERE. WE BELIEVE WHEN NATIONS RESPECT THE RIGHTS OF THEIR NEIGHBORS AND DEFEND THE INTEREST OF THEIR PEOPLE, THEY CAN BETTER WORK TOGETHER TO SECURE THE BLESSINGS SAFETY, PROSPERITY AND PEACE. EACH OF US HERE TODAY IS THE ADVERSARY OF A RICH CULTURE, AND PEOPLE BOUND TOGETHER BY TIES OF MEMORY, TRADITION, AND THE VALUES THAT MAKE OUR HOMELANDS LIKE NOWHERE ELSE ON EARTH. THAT IS WHY AMERICA WILL ALWAYS CHOOSE INDEPENDENCE OVER GLOBAL GOVERNANCE. I HONOR EVERY NATION TO PURSUE ITS OWN CUSTOMS, BELIEFS AND TRADITIONS. THE UNITED STATES WILL NOT TELL YOU HOW TO LIVE OR WORK OR WORSHIP. WE ONLY ASK THAT YOU HONOR OUR SOVEREIGNTY IN RETURN, FROM WARSAW, TO BRUSSELS, TO TOKYO, TO SINGAPORE, IT HAS BEEN MY HIGHEST HONOR TO REPRESENT THE UNITED STATES ABROAD. I HAVE FORGED CLOSE RELATIONSHIPS AND FRIENDSHIPS AND STRONG PARTNERSHIPS WITH THE LEADERS OF MANY NATIONS IN THIS ROOM AND OUR APPROACH HAS ALWAYS YIELDED INCREDIBLE CHANGE. WE SUPPORT MANY COUNTRIES TODAY AND HAVE ENGAGED IN W NORTH KOREA TO REPLACE THE INSPECTOR OF CONTICKET WITH A BOLD AND NEW PUSH FOR PEACE. IN JUNE I TRAVELED TO SINGAPORE TO MEET FACE-TO-FACE WITH NORTH KOREA’S LEADER, KIM JONG-UN. WE HAD HIGHLY PRODUCTIVE CONVERSATIONS AND MEETINGS. AND WE AGREED THAT IT WAS IN BOTH COUNTRIES’ INTEREST TO PURSUE THE DENUCLEARIZATION OF THE KOREAN PENINSULA. SINCE THAT MEETING WE’VE ALREADY SEEN A NUMBER OF ENCOURAGING MEASURES THAT FEW COULD HAVE IMAGINED ONLY A SHORT TIME AGO. THE MISSILES AND BEING ROETS ARE NO LONGER FLYING IN EVERY DIRECTION. NUCLEAR TESTING HAS STOPPED, SOME MILITARY FACILITIES ARE ALREADY BEING DISMANTLED. OUR HOSTAGES HAVE BEEN RELEASED AND AS PROMISED, THE REMAINS OF OUR FALLEN REROWS ARE BEING RETURNED HOME, TO LAY AT REST IN AMERICAN SOIL. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK CHAIRMAN KIM FOR HIS COURAGE AND THE STEPS HE’S TAKEN. THOUGH MUCH WORK NEEDS TO BE DONE. THE SANCTIONS WILL STAY IN PLACE UNTIL THE DENUCLEARIZATION OCCURS. I WANT TO HELP THOSE WHO HAVE REACHED US REACH THIS MOMENT, A MOMENT THAT IS FAR GREATER THAN PEOPLE WOULD UNDERSTAND. FAR GREATER. BUT FOR ALSO THEIR SUPPORT AND THE CRITICAL SUPPORT THAT WE WILL ALL NEED GOING FORWARD. SPECIAL THANKS TO PRESIDENT MOON OF SOUTH KOREA, PRIME MINISTER ABE OF JAPAN, AND PRESIDENT XI OF CHINA. IN THE MIDDLE EAST OUR NEW APPROACH IS YIELDING GREAT STRIDES AND VERY HISTORIC CHANGE. FOLLOW BE MY TRIP TO SAUDI ARABIA LAST YEAR, THE GULF COUNTRIES OPENED A NEW CENTER TO TARGET TERRORISTS FINANCING. SAY THAT ARE ENFORCING NEW SANCTIONS WORKING WITH US TO IDENTIFY AND TRACK TERRORIST NETWORKS AND TAKING MORE RESPONSIBILITY FOR FIGHTING TERRORISM AND EXTREMISM IN THEIR OWN REGION. THE UAE, SAUDI ARABIA, AND QATAR HAVE PLEDGED BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO AID THE PEOPLE OF SYRIA AND YEMEN. AND THEY ARE PURSUING MULTIPLE AVENUES TO ENDING YEMEN’S HORRIBLE, HORRIFIC CIVIL WAR. ULTIMATELY, IT IS UP TO THE NATIONS OF THE REGION TO DECIDE WHAT KIND OF FUTURE THEY WANT FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR CHILDREN. FOR THAT REASON THE UNITED STATES IS WORKING WITH THE GULF CORPORATION COUNCIL, JORDAN AND EGYPT TO ESTABLISH A REGIONAL STRATEGIC ALLIANCE SO MIDDLE EASTERN NATIONS CAN ADVANCE STABILITY AND SECURITY ACROSS THEIR HOME REJION. THANK YOU TO THE UNITED STATES MILITARY AND OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH MANY OF YOUR NATIONS, I AM PLEASED TO REPORT THAT THE BLOOD THIRSTY KILLERS KNOWN AS ISIS HAVE BEEN DRIVEN OUT FROM THE TERRITORY THEY ONCE HELD IN IRAQ AND SYRIA. WE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK WITH FRIENDS AND ALLIES TO DENY RADICAL ISLAMIC TERARISTS, FUNDING, TERRITORY OR SUPPORT OR ANY MEANS OF INFILTRATING OUR BORDERS. THE ONGOING TRAGEDY IN SYRIA IS HEARTBREAKING. OUR SHARED GOALS MUST BE THE DEESCALATION OF MILITARY CONFLICT, ALONG WITH A POLITICAL SOLUTION THAT HONORS THE WILL OF THE SYRIAN PEOPLE. IN THIS VAIN, WE URGE THE UNITED NATIONS LED PEACE PROCESS BE REINVIGORATED BUT REV ASSURED THE UNITED STATES WILL RESPOND — REST ASSURED THE UNITED STATES WILL RESPOND IF CHEMICAL WEAPONS ARE DEPLOYED BY THE BASHAR AL-ASSAD REGIME. I COMMAND OTHER COUNTRIES FOR HOSTING REFUGEES FROM THIS VERY BRUTAL CIVIL WAR. AS WE SEE IN JORDAN, THE MOST COMPASSIONATE POLICY IS TO PLACE REFUGEES AS CLOSE TO THEIR HOMES AS POSSIBLE, TO EASE THEIR EVENTUAL RETURN TO BE PART OF THE REBUILDING PROCESS. THIS APPROACH ALSO STRETCHES FINITE RESOURCES TO HELP FAR MORE PEOPLE INCREASING THE IMPACT OF EVERY DOLLAR SPENT. EVERY SOLUTION TO THE HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN SYRIA MUST INCLUDE A STRATEGY TO ADDRESS THE BRUTAL REGIME THAT IS FUELED AND FINANCED IT. THE CORRUPT DICTATORSHIP IN IRAN. IRAN’S LEADERS SAW CHAOS, DEATH, AND DESTRUCTION. THEY DO NOT RESPECT THEIR NEIGHBORS OR BORDERS OR THE SOVEREIGN RIGHTS OF NATIONS. INSTEAD, IRAN’S LEADERS PLUNDERED THE NATION’S RESOURES TO ENRICH THEMSELVES AND TO SPREAD MAYHEM ACROSS THE MIDDLE EAST AND FAR BEYOND. THE IRANIAN PEOPLE ARE RIGHTLY OUTRAGED THEIR LEADERS EMBEZZLED BILLIONS FROM IRAN’S TREASURE, SEIZED VALUE PORTIONS OF THE INCOME AND LOOTED THE PEOPLE’S RELIGIOUS ENDOWMENTES ALL TO WAGE WAR ON THEIR PROXIES. NOT GOOD. IRAN’S NEIGHBORS HAVE PAID A HEAVY TOLL FOR THE REGION’S AGENDA OF AGGRESSION AND EXPANSION. THAT IS WHY SO MANY COUNTRIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST STRONGLY SUPPORTED MY DECISION TO WITHDRAW UNITED STATES FROM THE HORRIBLE 2015 IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL AND REIMPOSE NUCLEAR SANCTIONS. THE IRAN DEAL WAS A WIN FALL FOR IRAN’S LEADERS. IN THE YEARS SINCE THE DEAL WAS REACHED, IRAN’S MILITARY BUDGET GREW NEARLY 40%. THE DICTATOR FUNDS USED TO BUILD MISSILES, INCREASE INTERNAL REPRESSION, FINANCE TERRORISM AND FUND HAVOC AND SLAUGHTER IN SYRIA AND YEMEN. THE UNITED STATES HAS LAUNCHED A CAMPAIGN OF ECONOMIC OPPRESSION TO REMY THE FUNDS NEEDS TO ADVANCE ITS BLOODY AGENDA. LAST MONTH WE BEGAN REIMPOSING HARD-HITTING NUCLEAR SANCTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN LIFTED UNDER THE IRAN DEAL. ADDITIONAL SANCTIONS WILL RESUME NOVEMBER 5th AND MORE WILL FOLLOW AND WE ARE WORKING WITH COUNTRIES THAT IMPORT IRANIAN CRUDE OIL TO CUT THEIR PURCHASES SUBSTANTIALLY. WE CANNOT ALLOW THE WORLD’S LEADING SPONSOR OF TERRORISM TO POSSESS THE PLANET’S MOST DANGEROUS WEAPONS. WE CANNOT ALLOW A REGIME THE CHANCED UP TO AMERICA AND THAT THREATENED ISRAEL WITH ANNIHILATION, TO POSSESS THE MEANS TO DELIVER A NUCLEAR WARHEAD TO ANY CITY ON EARTH, JUST CAN’T DO IT. WE ASK ALL NATIONS TO ISOLATE IRAN’S REGIME AS LONGER AS ITS AGGRESSION CONTINUES AND WE ASK ALL NATIONS TO SUPPORT IRAN’S PEOPLE AS THEY STRUGGLE TO RECLAIM, THEIR RELIGIOUS AND RIGHTEOUS DESTINY. . YEAR, WE ALSO TOOK ANOTHER SIGNIFICANT STEP FORWARD IN THE MIDDLE EAST IN RECOGNITION OF EVERY SOVEREIGN STATE TO DETERMINE ITS OWN CAPITAL, I MOVED THE U.S. EMBASSY IN ISRAEL TO JERUSALEM. THE UNITED STATES HAS COMMITTED TO A FUTURE OF PEACE AND CIVILITY IN THE REGION, INCLUDING PEACE BETWEEN THE ISRAELIS AND THE PALESTINIANS. THAT AIM IS ADVANCED NOT HARMED BY ACKNOWLEDGING THE OBVIOUS FACTS. AMERICA’S POLICY OF PRINCIPLE TO REALISM MUST MEAN WE CANNOT BE HELD HOSTAGE TO IDEOLOGIES, AND DOG MAS, PROVEN OVER THE YEARS TIME AND TIME AGAIN. THIS IS TRUE NOT ONLY IN MATTERS OF PEACE, BUT IN MATTERS OF PROSPERITY. WE BELIEVE THAT TRADE MUST BE FAIR AND RECIPROCAL. THE UNITED STATES WILL NOT BE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF ANY LONGER. FOR DECADES, THE UNITED STATES OPENED ITS ECONOMY. THE LARGEST BY FAR ON EARTH WITH FEW CONDITIONS. WE ALLOWED FOREIGN GOODS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD TO FLOW FREELY ACROSS OUR BORDERS, YET OTHER COUNTRIES DID NOT GRANT US FAIR AND RECIPROCAL ACCESS TO THEIR MARKETS IN RETURN. EVEN WORSE, SOME COUNTRIES ABUSED THEIR OPENNESS TO DUMP THEIR PRODUCTS, TARGET OUR INDUSTRIES, AND MANIPULATE THEIR CURRENCIES TO GAIN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE OVER OUR COUNTRY. AS A RESULT, OUR TRADE DEFICIT BALLOONED TO NEARLY $800 BILLION A YEAR. FOR THIS REASON WE ARE SYSTEMATICALLY RENEGIATIONING BROKEN AND BAD TRADE DEALS. LAST MONTH WE ANNOUNCED A GROUNDBREAKING U.S.-MEXICO TRADE AGREEMENT AND JUST YET I STOOD WITH PRESIDENT MOON TO ANNOUNCE THE SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE BRAND-NEW U.S.-KOREA TRADE DEAL. AND THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING. MANY NATIONS IN THIS HALL WILL AGREE THAT THE WORLD TRADING SYSTEM IS IN DIRE NEED OF CHANGE. FOR EXAMPLE, COUNTRIES WERE ADMITTED TO THE WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION THEY VIOLATE EVERY SINGLE PRINCIPAL ON WHICH THE ORGANIZATION IS BASED. WHILE THE UNITED STATES AND MANY OTHER NATIONS PLAY BY THE RULES THESE COUNTRIES USE GOVERNMENT-RUN INDUSTRIAL PLANNING AND STATE-OWNED ENTERPRISES TO RIG THE SYSTEM IN THEIR FAVOR. THEY ENGAGE IN RELENTLESS PRODUCT DUMPING, FORCED TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER, AND THE THEFT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY. THE UNITED STATES LOST OVER 3 MILLION MANUFACTURING JOBS, NEARLY A QUARTER OF ALL STEEL JOBS, AND 60,000 FACTORIES AFTER CHINA JOINED THE WTO. AND WE HAVE RACKED UP $13 TRILLION IN TRADE DEFICITS OVER THE LAST TWO DECADES. BUT THOSE DAYS ARE OVER. WE WILL NO LONGER TOLERATE SUCH ABUSE. WE WILL NOT ALLOW OUR WORKERS TO BE VICTIMIZED, OUR COMPANIES TO BE CHEATED, AND OUR WEALTH TO BE PLUNDERED AND TRANSFERRED. AMERICA WILL NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR PROTECTING ITS CITIZENS. THE UNITED STATES HAS JUST ANNOUNCED TARIFFS ON ANOTHER $200 BILLION IN CHINESE-MADE GOODS FOR A TOTAL SO FAR OF $250 BILLION. I HAVE GREAT RESPECT AND AFFECTION FOR MY FRIEND PRESIDENT XI, BUT OUR TRADE IMBALANCE, I HAVE MADE CLEAR, IS JUST NOT ACCEPTABLE. CHINA’S MARKED DISTORTIONS AND THE WAY THEY DEAL CANNOT BE TOLERATED. AS MY ADMINISTRATION HAS DEMONSTRATED, AMERICA WILL ALWAYS ACT IN OUR NATIONAL INTERESTS. I SPOKE BEFORE THIS BODY LAST YEAR AND WARNED THAT THE U.N. HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL HAD BECOME A GRAVE EMBARRASSMENT TO THIS CONSTITUTION, SHIELDING EGREGIOUS HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSERS WHILE BASHING AMERICA AND ITS MANY FRIENDS. OUR AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITE WOULD NATIONS, NIKKI HALEY, LAID OUT A CLEAR AGENDA FOR REFORM, BUT DESPITE REPORTED AND REPEATED WARNINGS, NO ACTION AT ALL WAS TAKEN. SO THE UNITED STATES TOOK THE ONLY RESPONSIBLE COURSE AND WITHDREW FROM THE HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL AND WE WILL NOT RETURN UNTIL REAL REFORM IS ENACTED. FOR SIMILAR REASONS, THE UNITED STATES WILL PROVIDE NO SUPPORT IN RECOGNITION TO THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT. AS FAR AS AMERICA IS CONCERNED, THE ICC HAS NEW JURISDICTION, NO LEGITIMACY, AND NO AUTHORITY. THE ICC CLAIMS UNIVERSAL JURISDICTION OVER THE CITIZENS OF EVERY COUNTRY VIOLATING PRINCIPLES OF FAIRNESS, JUSTICE, AND DUE PROCESS. WE WILL NEVER SUBDUE AMERICA’S SOVEREIGNTY TO A GLOBAL BUREAUCRACY. AMERICA IS GOVERNED BY AMERICANS. WE REJECTED IDEOLOGY OF GLOBALISM AND EMBRACE THE DOCTRINE OF PATRIOTISM AROUND THE WORLD, RESPONSIBLE NATIONS MUST DEFEND AGAINST THREATS TO SOVEREIGNTY NOT JUST FROM DOMINATION. WE BELIEVE STRONGLY IN ENERGY SECURITY FOR OURSELVES AND FOR OUR ALLIES. WE HAVE BECOME THE LARGEST ENERGY PRODUCER ANYWHERE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH THE UNITED STATES STANDS READY TO EXPORT OUR ABUNDANT SUPPLY OF OIL, CLEAN COAL AND NATURAL GAS. OPEC AND OPEC NATIONS ARE AS USUAL RIPPING OFF THE REST OF THE WORLD AND I . >>>NOT GOOD. WE WANT THEM TO STOP RAISING PRICES, WE WANT THEM TO START LOWERING PRICES AND MUST CONTRIBUTE SUBSTANTIALLY TO MILITARY PROTECTION FROM NOW ON. WE’RE NOT GOING TO PUT UP WITH IT THESE HONORABLE PRICES MUCH LONGER. RELIANCE ON A SINGLE FOREIGN SUPPLIER CAN LEAVE A NATION VULNERABLE TO EXTORTION AND INTIMIDATION. THAT IS WHY WE CONGRATULATE EUROPEAN STATES SUCH AS POLAND FOR LEADING THE CONSTRUCTION OF A PIPELINE SO THAT NATIONS ARE NOT DEPENDENT ON RUSSIA TO MEET THEIR ENERGY NEEDS. IT HAS BEEN THE FORMAL POLICY OF OUR COUNTRY SINCE PRESIDENT MONROE THAT WE REJECT THE INTERFERENCE OF FOREIGN NATIONS IN THIS HEMISPHERE AND IN OUR OWN AFFAIRS. THE UNITED STATES HAS RECENTLY STRENGTHEN IT HAD OR LAWS TO BETTER SCREEN FOREIGN INVESTMENTS, IN OUR COUNTRY FOR NATIONAL SECURITY THREATS. AND WE WELCOME COOPERATION WITH COUNTRIES IN THIS REGION AND AROUND THE WORLD THAT WISH TO DO THE SAME. YOU NEED TO DO IT FOR YOUR OWN PROTECTION. THE UNITED STATES IS ALSO WORKING WITH PARTNERS IN LATIN AMERICA TO CONFRONT THREATS TO — FROM UNCONTROLLED MIGRATION, TOLERANCE FOR HUMAN STRUGGLING, AND HUMAN SMUGGLING AND TRAFFICKING IS NOT HUMANE. IT’S A HONORABLE THING THAT’S GOING ON AT LEVELS THAT NOBODY IS EVER SEEN BEFORE. IT’S VERY, VERY CRUEL. ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION FUNDS CRIMINAL NETWORKS, RUTHLESS GANG AND THE FLOW OF DEADLY DRUGS. ILLEGALIMMIGRATION EXPLOITS AS A RULE OTHER VALUABLE POPULATIONS, HURTS HARD WORKING CITIZENS AND HAS PRODUCED A VICIOUS CYCLE OF CRIME, VIOLENCE AND POINT OF POVERTY. ONLY BY UPHOLDING NATIONAL BORDERS, DESTROYING CRIMINAL GANGS CAN WE BREAK THIS CYCLE AND ESTABLISH A REAL FOUNDATION FOR PROSPERITY. WE RECOGNIZE THE RIGHT OF EVERY NATION IN THIS ROOM TO SET ITS OWN IMMIGRATION POLICY IN ACCORDANCE WITH ITS NATIONAL INTERESTS. JUST AS WEASK OTHER COUNTRIES TO RESPECT OUR OWN RIGHT TO DO THE SAME WHICH WE ARE DOING. THAT IS ONEREASON THE UNITED STATES WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE NEW GLOBAL COMPACT ON MIGRATION. MY GRADUATION SHOULD NOT BE GOVERNED BY AN INTERNATIONAL BODY UNACCOUNTABLE TO OUR OWN CITIZENS. ULTIMATELY THE ONLY LONG-TERM SOLUTION TO THE MIGRATION CRISIS IS TO HELP PEOPLE BUILD MORE HOPEFUL FUTURES IN THEIR HOME COUNTRIES. MAKE THEIR COUNTRIES GREAT AGAIN. CURRENTLY WE ARE WITNESSING A HUMAN TRAGEDY AS AN EXAMPLE, IN VENEZUELA, MORE THAN 2 MILLION PEOPLE HAVE FLED THE ANGUISH INFLICTED BY THE SOCIALIST REGIME AND ITS CUBAN SPONSORS. NOT LONG AGO CONVENIENCE WALL LAW WAS ONE OF THE RICHEST COUNTRIES ON EARTH. TODAYSOCIAL LIMIT HAS BANK ERUPTED THE OIL RICH NATION AND DRIVEN ITS PEOPLE INTO ABJECT POVERTY. VIRTUALLY EVERYWHERESOCIAL LIMIT OR COMMUNISM HAS BEEN TRIED. SOCIAL LIMITSTHIRST FOR POWER LEADS TO EXPANSION AND OPPRESSION. ALL NATIONS OF THE WORLD SHOULD RESIST SOCIAL I’M AND THE MISERY THAT IT BRINGS TO EVERYONE. IN THATSPIRIT, WE ASK THE NATIONS GATHERED HERE TO JOIN US IN CALLING FOR THE RESTORATION OF DEMOCRACY IN VENEZUELA. TODAY WE’RE ANNOUNCING ADDITIONAL SANCTIONS AGAINST THE REPRESS SIEVE REGIME. TARGETING THE INNER CIRCLE AND CLOSE ADVISERS. WE’RE GRATEFUL FOR ALL OF THE WORK THE UNITED NATIONS DOES AROUND THE WORLD TO HELP PEOPLE BUILD BETTER LIVES FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES. THE UNITED STATES IS THE WORLD’S LARGEST GIVER IN THE WORLD BY FAR, OF FOREIGN AID. BUT FEW GIVE ANYTHING TO US , THAT IS WHY WE’RE TAKING A HARD LOOK AT U.S. FOREIGN ASSISTANCE. THAT WILL BE HEADED UP BY THE SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO. WE WILL EXAMINE WHAT IS WORKING, WHAT IS NOT WORKING, AND WHETHER THE COUNTRIES WHO RECEIVE OUR DOLLARS AND OUR PROTECTION ALSO HAVE OUR INTERESTS AT HEART. MOVING FORWARD, WE’RE ONLY GOING TO GIVE FOREIGN AID TO THOSE WHO RESPECT US AND FRANKLY ARE OUR FRIENDS. AND WE EXPECT OTHER COUNTRIES TO PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE FOR THE COST OF THEIR DEFENSE. THE UNITED STATES IS COMMITTED TO MAKING THE UNITED NATIONS MORE EFFECTIVE AND ACCOUNTABLE. I HAVE SAID MANY TIMES THAT THE UNITE NATIONS HAS ULIMITED POTENTIAL AS PART OF OUR REFORM EFFORT I HAVE TOLD OUR NEGOTIATORS THAT THE UNITED STATES WILL NOT PAY MORE THAN 25% OF THE UN PEACEKEEPING BUDGET. THIS WILLENCOURAGE OTHER COUNTRIES TO STEP UP, GET INVOLVED AND ALSO SHARE IN THIS VERY LARGE BURDEN. WE ARE WORKING TO SHIFT MORE OF OUR FUNDING FROM ASSESSED CONTRIBUTIONS TO VOLUNTARILY SO THAT WE CAN TARGET AMERICAN RESOURCES TO THE PROGRAMS WITH THE BEST RECORD OF SUCCESS. ONLY WHEN EACH OF US DOES OUR PART, AND CONTRIBUTES OUR SHARE, CAN WE REALIZE THE UN’S HIGHEST ASPIRATIONS. WE MUST PURSUE PEACE WITHOUT FEAR, HOPE WITHOUT DESPAIR AND SECURITY WITHOUT APOLOGY. LOOKING AROUND THIS HALL WHERE SO MUCH HISTORY HAS TRANSPIRED WE THINK OF THE MANY BEFORE US WHO HAVE COME HERE TO ADDRESS THE CHALLENGES OF THEIR NATIONS AND OF THEIR TIMES. AND OUR THOUGHTS TURN TO THE SAME QUESTION THAT RAN THROUGH ALL THEIR SPEECHES AND RESOLUTIONS THROUGH EVERY WORD, AND EVERY HOPE. IT IS THE QUESTIONOF WHAT KIND OF WORLD WILL WE LEAVE FOR OUR CHILDREN? ANDWHAT KIND OF NATIONS THEY WILL INHERIT ? THE DREAMSTHAT FILL THIS HAUL TODAY ARE AS DIVERSE AS THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE STOOD AT THIS PODIUM AND AS VARIED AS THE COUNTRIES REPRESENTED RIGHT HERE IN THIS BODY ARE. IT REALLY ISSOMETHING. IT REALLY IS GREAT, GREAT HISTORY. THERE IS INDIA, A FREE SOCIETY OVER A BILLION PEOPLE, SUCCESSFULLY LIFTING COUNTLESS MILLIONS OUT OF POVERTY AND INTO THE MIDDLE CLASS. THERE ISSAUDI ARABIA WHERE THE KING AND CROWN PRINCE ARE PURSUING REFORMS, ISRAEL PROUDLY CELEBRATING ITS 70TH ANNIVERSARY AS A THRIVING DEMOCRACY. INPOLAND PEOPLE ARE STANDING UP FOR THEIR INDEPENDENCE, THEIR SECURITY AND SOFT SEVERE TEE. MANY COUNTRIES ARE PURSUING THEIR OWN UNIQUE VISIONS BUILDING THEIR OWN HOPEFUL FUTURES AND CHASING THEIR OWN WONDERFUL DREAMS OF DESTINY, LEGACY, AND OF A HOME. THE WHOLE WORLD IS RICHER. HUMANITY IS BETTER. BECAUSE OF THIS BEAUTIFUL CONSTELLATION OF NATIONS EACH VERY SPECIAL, EACH VERY UNIQUE, AND EACH SHINING BRIGHTLY IN ITS PART OF THE WORLD. AND EACH ONE WE SEE AWESOME PROMISE OF A PEOPLE BOUND TOGETHER BY A SHARED PAST AND WORKING TOWARD A COMMON FUTURE. AS FOR AMERICANS WE KNOW WHAT KIND OF FUTURE WE WANT FOR OURSELVES. WE KNOW WHAT KIND OF A NATION AMERICA MUST ALWAYS BE. IN AMERICA WE BELIEVE IN THE MAJORITY OF FREEDOM AND THE DIGNITY OF THE INDIVIDUAL. WEBELIEVE IN SELF-GOVERNMENT AND THE RULE OF LAW. AND WE PRIZE THE CULTURE THAT SUSTAINS OUR LIBERTY, A CULTURE BUILT ON STRONG FAMILIES, DEEP FAITH, AND FIERCE INDEPENDENCE. WE CELEBRATE OURHEROES, TREASURE OUR TRADITIONS, AND ABOVE ALL, WE LOVE OUR COUNTRY. INSIDE EVERYONE IN THIS GREAT CHAMBER TODAY AND EVERYONE LISTENING ALL AROUND THE GLOBE THERE IS THE HEART OF A PATRIOT THAT FEELS THE SAME POWERFUL LOVE FOR YOUR NATION , THE SAME INTENSE LOYALTY TO YOUR HOME LAND. THE PASSION THAT BURNS IN THE HEARTS OF PATRIOTS AND THE SOULS OF NATIONS HAS INSPIRED REFORM AND REVOLUTION SACRIFICE AND SELFLESSNESS, SCIENTIFIC BREAKTHROUGHS AND MAGNIFICENT WORKS OF ART. OUR TASK IS NOT TO ERASE IT, BUT TO EMBRACE IT. TO BUILD WITH IT, TO DRAW ON ITS ANCIENT WISDOM AND FIND WITHIN IT THE WILL TO MAKE OUR NATIONS GREATER, REGIONS SAFER AND THE WORLD BETTER. TO UNLEASH THIS INCREDIBLE POTENTIAL IN OUR PEOPLE WE MUST DEFEND THE FOUNDATION THAT MAKE IT ALL POSSIBLE, SOVEREIGN AND INDEPENDENT NATIONS ARE THE ONLY VEHICLE WHERE FREEDOM HAS EVER SURVIVED. DEMOCRACY HAS EVERENDURED OR PEACE HAS EVER PROSPERED. AND SO WE MUST PROTECT OUR SOVEREIGNTY AND OUR CHERISHED INDEPENDENCE ABOVE ALL. WHEN WE DO, WE WILL FIND NEW AVENUES FOR COOPERATION, UNFOLDING BEFORE US. WE WILL FIND NEWPASSION FOR PEACE-MAKING RISING WITHIN US. WE WILL FIND NEWPURPOSE, NEW RESOLVE AND NEW SPIRIT FLOURISHING ALL AROUND US. AND MAKING THIS A MORE BEAUTIFUL WORLD IN WHICH TO LIVE. SO TOGETHER LET US CHOOSE A FUTURE OF PATRIOTISM PROSPERITY AND PRIDE, LET US CHOOSE PEACE AND FREEDOM OVER DOMINATION AND DEFEAT. AND LETUS COME HERE TO THIS PLACE TO STAND FOR OUR PEOPLE AND THEIR NATIONS. FOREVER STRONG, FOREVER SOVEREIGN, FOREVER JUST AND FOREVER THANKFUL FOR THE GRACE AND THE GOODNESS AND THE GLORY OF GOD. THANK YOU, GOD BLESS YOU, AND GOD BLESS THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD. THANK YOU VERYMUCH. THANK YOU. . >>ON BEHALF OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY I WISH TO THANK THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA FOR STATEMENT JUST MADE. MAY I REQUESTREPRESENTATIVES TO REMAIN SEATED WHILE WE –. >>ALL RIGHT WE’RE GOING TO PULL AWAY FROM THE UNITED NATIONS. THE PRESIDENT ADDRESSING THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY FOR A LITTLE LESS THAN AN HOUR OR SO. >>UM-HUM. >>WELCOME. >> THANK YOU. >> ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE WERE SORT OF TALKING ABOUT AS WE WERE LISTENING IS, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF WHAT WE HEARD FROM HIM WE EXPECTED TO HEAR. BUT DID ANYTHING JUMP OUT AT YOU AS NOVEL, DIFFERENT, NEW AT ALL? >>IN TERMS OF WHAT HE CITED FOR PROGRESS FOR THE UNITED STATES, YOU SAW AT THE TOP WHEN HE SPOKE ABOUT THE U.S. HAVING UM, ACCOMPLISHED MORE THAN ANY OTHER ADMINISTRATION IN THIS YEAR AND THEN THERE WAS RESOUNDING LAUGHTER. >>YES. >> I DIDN’T EXPECT THAT, BUT OKAY. >>IT’S TRUE. >> EXACTLY. THEN HE TRIED TOMOVE ON AND TALK ABOUT WHAT PROGRESS THE ADMINISTRATION HAS ACCOMPLISHED IN THE PAST YEAR. >>UM-HUM. >>AND NORTH KOREA WAS ON THE TOP OF THE LIST. HE SPOKE ABOUTKIM JONG-uN AND THE CURRENTLY AND THE STEPS THAT HE HAS TAKEN. HE SPOKE ABOUTENCOURAGING MEASURES IN TERMS OF U.S., NORTH KOREA TALKS AND THAT’S ALL TRUE TO A DEGREE, RIGHT? >>RIGHT. >>WE’VE SEEN THE 2 MEET IN SINGAPORE. WE HAVEN’T SEEN MUCHFOLLOW-UP AND TRUMP STAYED PRETTY FAR AWAY FROM THAT. THESE WERE SOME VERY, UM, NICE WORDS ABOUT KIM JONG-uN, BUT THIS WASN’T A WHOLE LOT OF OTHER SUBSTANCE OTHER THAN ROLLING OUT THESE NEW SANCTIONS. . >>YOU KNOW, IT STRUCK ME THAT THE SPEECH HAD A LOT OF STEVEN MILLER’S FINGER PRINTS ON IT THERE WAS A LOT OF PATRIOTISM AND THE PRESIDENT SAYING GLOBALI GLOBALISM IS A GOOD THING. [INAUDIBLE] TO POLICIES THAT HAD LONG BEEN SORT OF DONE AWAY WITH IN THIS COUNTRY. >>GOVERNING FROM THAT STANDPOINT AND STANDING WHERE HE’S STANDING AT THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE UNITED NATIONS, RIGHT? >>RIGHT. >>THIS IS AN INTERNATIONAL BODY CREATED AFTER WORLD WAR II TO AVOID INTERNATIONAL CONFLICT, TO COME TOGETHER, LOOK AT ISSUES TOGETHER TO BRING ALL THESE COUNTRIES TOWARDS A MORE PEACEFUL WORLD. TRUMP ISBASICALLY SAYING YOU DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO, WE’LL DO WHAT WE WANT TO DO, LET’S PROTECT SOVEREIGNTY AND PUSH ON THAT AS THE WAY FORWARD, RATHER THAN COLLECTIVE ACTION ALTOGETHER. >>THAT’S SUCH A GOOD POINT. AGAIN, IT’S NOT — I MEAN, YOU KNOW, PATRIOTISM IS A WONDERFUL THING AND ALL OF US HERE AT THIS TABLE AND THIS COUNTRY ARE PATRIOTS AND LOVE OUR COUNTRY AS DO THE PEOPLE IN THAT BODY. YOUR POINT IS A GOOD ONE WHICH WAS IN THE WAKE OF WORLD WAR II WHERE IT WAS VERY CLEAR THAT THE NATIONS HAD NOT BEEN ABLE TO COME TO AGREEMENTS WHERE THEY CAN CREATE PEACE THAT’S WHY THIS BODY WAS CREATED. >>UM-HUM. >>IT FAILED AFTER WORLD WAR I. SO THE PRESIDENT SORT OF SUGGESTING WE’RE GOING TO DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO, YOU DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO AND LET’S SEE WHAT HAPPENS. >> RIGHT, INDEPENDENCE OVER GLOBAL CONTROL AND DOMINATION THAT’S WHAT HE WAS SAYING. >>RIGHT. >>I WANT TO POINT OUT THAT HE’S ALSO REFERENCING PAST U.S. FOREIGN POLICY OBJECTIVES THAT THIS ADMINISTRATION DOESN’T ADHERE TO. HE SAID THATTHEY’RE NOT GOING TO BE HELD HOSTAGE TO THE OLD DOINGMAS OF THE PAST AND HE’S SHOWN A LIGHT ON THE MOVING OF THE U.S. EMBASSY IN ISRAEL. HE SPOKEABOUT THE TRADE CONFLICT THAT HE’S GOTTEN THE U.S. INTO. BASICALLY TRYING TO ASSERT UM, THE U.S. POSITION THIS ADMINISTRATION’S POSITION ONTO FOREIGN POLICY IN A WAY THAT WE HAVEN’T SEEN IN THE PAST. >>THAT’S REALLY INTERESTING. STAND BY. WE’RE JOINED FROM THE UNITED NATIONS IN NEW YORK CITY. SO, UM, IGUESS I’LL FIRST GET YOUR OVERVIEW. WE WERE SORT OFDISCUSSING THE SPEECH AND KIND OF YOU KNOW, REMARKING THERE WAS NOTHING THAT JUMPED OUT AS REMARKABLE. BASICALLY WHAT WEHAD EXPECTED. WHAT’S YOUR TAKEON THE SPEECH THAW HEARD FROM THE PRESIDENT? >>I THINK THE 3 OF Y’ALL HIT IT ON THE HEAD WHICH IS EVERYTHING THAT HE HAD FLEW IN THE FACE OF THE SPIRIT OF THE UN HERE. HE’SBEEN CRITICAL OF THE UN IN THE PAST. IN FACT, HE POSTED AVIDEO MESSAGE SAYING HE WAS SURPRISED THE UN COULD NOT ACCOMPLISH MORE THAN IT HAS, THAT IT HAS POTENTIAL. SO THISIS EXACTLY WHAT WE EXPECTED IN TERMS OF DELIVERING YET ANOTHER AMERICA FIRST MESSAGE, BUT I WILL SAY WE WERE EXPECTING MORE OF A TALE OF 2 NUCLEAR AMBITIONS FROM MR. TRUMP. HOWEVER, IT WAS AN ABRIDGED VERSION, RIGHT, EVEN THOUGH HE THANKED KIM JONG-uN, HE ALSO ACKNOWLEDGED THERE WAS STILL A LOT OF WORK LEFT TO DO IN TERMS OF REACHING THAT GOAL TO DENZEL AND AS EXPECTED HE TALKED ABOUT IRAN OF COURSE THE CURRENT SITUATIONS FOR BOTH HE BELIEVED ARE DEPENDENT ON THEIR WILLINGNESS TO COME TO THE NEGOTIATING TABLE WITH THE U.S. BUT THE SLAMMING IRAN WAS NO SURPRISE, PAINTING THAT PICTURE AS DIRE AS ONE THAT IS NOT COOPERATIVE AND SORT OF, YOU KNOW, CRITICIZING THE REGIME. HE DIDN’T MENTION, HOWEVER, THE FACT THAT OVERNIGHT ALL OF THE OTHER COUNTRIES THAT ARE STILL PART OF THAT AGREEMENT RECOGNIZED THAT THE CURRENT IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL IS WORKING. OF COURSE, THEPRESIDENT SAID THE SAME THING THAT EVEN THOUGH THE PRESIDENT THOUGHT REIMPOSING ECONOMIC SANCTIONS WOULD BE A STRATEGY TO PUT PRESSURE ON IRAN, IT’S NO . AND SO THE BURDEN IS ON PRESIDENT TRUMP TO EXPLAIN HIS STRATEGY AND WHY HE BELIEVES PULLING OUT OF THAT DEAL REMAINS THE BEST WAY FORWARD AND HE DID NOT TALK ABOUT THAT. >>YEAH, I — >>DURING THE SPEECH. >> I THOUGHT THAT WAS VERY INTERESTING THAT HE DIDN’T TALK ABOUT THE OTHER COUNTRIES THAT SIGNED ONTO THAT DEAL AT ALL REALLY. [INAUDIBLE] SORT OF ATTACKING IRAN. >>YEAH. >>YEAH. >>THE OTHER THING HE DIDN’T MENTION IS HE DIDN’T TALK ABOUT RUSSIA. >>ABSOLUTELY. YES. >> YEAH. >>RIGHT. >>WHAT RUSSIA IS CURRENTLY DOING IN MEDDLING IN ELECTIONS WAS THAT SURPRISING. >> I PUT IT IN ALL CAPS IN INTO NOTES BECAUSE RUSSIA QUESTION MARK, QUESTION MARK. BECAUSE HEUSED A WARNING TO SYRIA AS A SEGUE TO IRAN. HE TALKED ABOUT YOU KNOW, THE CONSEQUENCES THAT WOULD PLAY OUT IF THERE WERE MORE CHEMICAL WEAPONS ATTACKS ON THE CIVILIAN THERE AND SAID, YOU KNOW, IT’S NOT ONLY SYRIA THAT HAS TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE HERE BUT ALSO THOSE FORCES BEHIND SYRIA THAT ARE FUNDING YOU KNOW WHAT’S HAPPENING THERE AND ALLOWING IT TO HAPPEN THEN WENT RIGHT INTO IRAN’S PART, BUT YOU’RE RIGHT, IN THAT MOMENT, I EXPECTED HIM TO ALSO MENTION RUSSIA. AND HE HAS TO BE FAIR IN THE PAST EVEN RECENTLY WARNED RUNNING BACK AND IRAN TO STOP THEIR PART IN THE SYRIAN CONFLICT OTHERWISE THEY WOULD FACE CONSEQUENCES AS WELL. BUTYOU’RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT HE DID NOT DO THAT. SO HERE WE AREAGAIN ON ANOTHER MASSIVE GLOBAL STAGE WHERE THE PRESIDENT HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO POINT THE FINGER AT MOSCOW AND HE DID NOT. >>RIGHT — >>[INAUDIBLE] THAT’S EXACTLY — >>RIGHT. >>YEAH, HE SAID — HE WARNED GERMANY ON BECOMING DEPENDENT ON RUSSIAN ENERGY. BUT HE DIDN’TSPECIFICALLY TARGET RUSSIA AT ALL. >>NO, HE DIDN’T. HE ALSOTALKED ABOUT IMMIGRATION AND WE HAVE SOME SOUND OF WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT THAT. LET’S TAKE ALISTEN. IT’S THERE, I SWEAR. >>WE RECOGNIZE THE RIGHT OF EVERY NATION IN THIS ROOM TO SET ITS OWN IMMIGRATION POLICY IN ACCORDANCE WITH ITS NATIONAL INTEREST JUST AS WE ASK OTHER COUNTRIES TO RESPECT OUR OWN RIGHT TO DO THE SAME WHICH WE ARE DOING. THAT IS ONE REASON THE UNITED STATES WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE NEW GLOBAL COMPACT ON MIGRATION. MY GRADUATION SHOULD NOT BE GOVERNED BY AN INTERNATIONAL BODY, UNACCOUNTABLE TO OUR OWN CITIZENS. ULTIMATELY THE ONLY LONG-TERM SOLUTION TO THE MIGRATION CRISIS IS TO HELP PEOPLE BUILD MORE HOPEFUL FUTURES IN THEIR HOME COUNTRIES. MAKE THEIR COUNTRIES GREAT AGAIN. . >>THERE YOU GO. GOT THAT LINEIN THERE. UM, THIS IS SOMETHINGWE HEARD FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE RECENTLY WHEN HE TALKED ABOUT ALL THAT AMERICA DOES FOR MIGRANTS AND BASICALLY SAID OVER THERE. >>RIGHT. >>WHERE THEY’RE AT. AND THEPRESIDENT REITERATING THIS. IWAS ASKING ABOUT THE GLOBAL COMPACT ON MIGRATION. WHAT IS IT? . >> YEAH, THE COMPACT ON MIGRATION IS ALL THESE COUNTRIES COMING TOGETHER TO TRY AND FIGURE OUT A WAY TO MAKE MIGRATION BETTER, TO WORK ON IT ALTOGETHER. THE U.S. ISSTEPPING AWAY FROM THAT. IMEAN, WE SAW JUST LAST WEEK THE STATE DEPARTMENT ROLL OUT A 30 30,000 REFUGEE CAP, THE LOWEST IN HISTORY SINCE THE PROGRAM WAS CREATED IN 1980. SO WE DIDN’THEAR ANY COUNTRIES COMING FORWARD AND SUPPORTING THE U.S. FOR THAT DECISION. THAT ISREALLY IMPORTANT. YOU KNOW, WEEXPECT IT, HUMANITARIAN ORGANIZATIONS TO COME OUT AGAINST THE U.S. BUT WE DIDN’T EXPECT SUCH A CALMNESS, SUCH A LACK OF COMMENTARY FROM FOREIGN NATIONS WHO ARE THE ONES THAT ARE ACTUALLY YOU KNOW, PUTTING UP THEIR HOUSES , THEIR COUNTRIES TO SUPPORT THESE REFUGEES BECAUSE THE U.S. IS CLOSING THE DOOR. >>UM-HUM. >> I WANT TO GET YOUR TAKE ON WHAT THE PRESIDENT HAD TO SAY ABOUT NORTH KOREA. LET’SPLAY A LITTLE BIT OF THAT. . >>ROCKETS ARE NO LONGER FLYING IN EVERY DIRECTION. NUCLEAR TESTING HAS STOPPED, SOME MILITARY FACILITIES ARE ALREADY BEING DISMANTLED. OUR HOSTAGES HAVE BEEN RELEASED AND HAS PROMISED THE REMAINS OF OUR FALLEN HEROES ARE BEING RETURNED HOME. TO LAY AT REST ONAMERICAN SOIL. I WOULD LIKE TOTHANK CHAIRMAN KIM FOR HIS COURAGE AND FOR THE STEPS HE HAS TAKEN, THOUGH MUCH WORK REMAINS TO BE DONE. THE SANCTIONS WILL STAY IN PLACE UNTIL DENUCLEARIZATION OCCURS. . >>THAT’S AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE. >> IT IS. ALTHOUGH I WONDER,THE CIA DIRECTOR HAS REMAINED DISCREPANT CAL ABOUT THE MOVES THAT NORTH KOREA IS MAKING SEEMINGLY TO CONTRAST THE PRESIDENT’S OPTIMISM. >>RIGHT. HERE’S WHY: ALL THOSE THINGS THAT THE PRESIDENT JUST LISTED WERE THINGS THAT WERE ALSO TRUE ABOUT A MONTH AGO WHEN HE CANCELLED SECRETARY POP PAY I DON’T’S TRIP TO NORTH KOREA CITING A LACK OF PROGRESS. SO WHAT HAPPENEDBETWEEN THEN AND NOW? WELL, KIMJONG-uN SENT HIM A LETTER REQUESTING A SECOND MEETING. HEALSO HAD A MILITARY PARADE THAT DID NOT SHOWCASE THE MISSILES AS HE DID IN THE PAST. THAT’S REALLY IT. BUT IN TERMSOF CONCRETE DELIVERABLES OR ANY KIND OF PLANS THAT SHOWS HE’S COMMITTED TO TAKING STEPS FORWARD WE DON’T HAVE THAT. THAT’S WHY THE SKEPTICISM IS THERE AND WHY THE PRESIDENT HAS YET TO ANSWER WHY HE HAS THIS RENEWED OPTIMISM ONE MONTH LATER AFTER CANCELLING THAT TRIP. SOMETHING THE ADMINISTRATION HAS NOT ANSWERED IS EVEN THOUGH THEY SAY THAT YOU KNOW, A SECOND SUMMIT IS ON THE BRINK AND YOU KNOW, BELIEVE IT WILL HAPPEN IN THE NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE THEY HAVEN’T ANSWERED HOW IS THE STRATEGY GOING TO BE DIFFERENT FROM THE FIRST SUMMIT, AND WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO HOPE TO LEAVE WITH IN TERMS OF WHAT THEY’VE LEARNED AFTER THE FIRST ONE? BECAUSE HERE WE ARE AGAIN THEN HAVING TO SAY AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THEY STILL HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO. UM, AND SO, I THINK, THE PRESIDENT WAS LISTENING, I THINK KIM JONG-uN WAS LISTENING AND KIM GOT AGAIN, WHAT HE ALWAYS WANTED WHICH WAS PRESIDENT TRUMP, THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES STANDING HERE THANKING HIM IN THIS WAY AND SHOWING OPTIMISM ALL WEEK . MEANWHILE SAYING BY THEWAY, THE SANCTIONS ARE GOING TO STAY IN POLICE. SO IF ANYTHINGHE COULD SAY IN THIS TALE OF 2 NUCLEAR POWERS THAT ACTUALLY UM, NORTH KOREA’S NOT GETTING MUCH. SO WHY WOULD IRANCOME TO THE BARGAINING TABLE WHEN THE PRESIDENT IS NOT MAKING ANY KIND OF CONCESSIONS DO YOU REMEMBER THIS NEGOTIATING PROCESS. AND SO EVEN THOUGH THEPRESIDENT TOOK A MILD VICTORY LAP, IT WASN’T AS MUCH AS I EXPECTED, ESPECIALLY COMPARED TO THIS TIME LAST YEAR WHEN HE COINED THE PHRASE LITTLE ROCKET MAN AND SAID HE WAS GOING TO TOTALLY DESTROY NORTH KOREA. >>YEAH, I WANT TO POINT OUT THE NORTH KOREANS ARE PLAYING HARD TO GET WITH THE U.S. THIS WEEK. MIKE POMPEO HAS EXTENDED AN INVITE TO MEET WITH THE FOREIGN MINISTER AND THEY HAVEN’T HEARD BACK YET. >> THAT’S INTERESTING. >>GOSH. I MEAN, YOU KNOW, YOUEXPECT TO PUT YOUR HAND OUT AS A GESTURE AND THE NRTH KOREANS HAVEN’T GOTTEN BACK TO THEM, THAT DOESN’T LOOK SO GOOD FOR THE UNITED STATES HERE. IT’SSOMETHING THEY’RE KNOWN TO DO. THEY DON’T NECESSARILY FOLLOW THROUGH ON ALL OF THEIR PLANS. BUT I ALSO WANT TO POINT OUT THAT TRUMP REFERENCED NORTH KOREA DESTROYING SOME OF ITS MISSILE TEST LAUNCH SITES. HEWASN’T ABLE TO CITE ANY OF THE NUCLEAR TEST SITES THEY ARE DISMANTLING. IN FACT NORTHKOREA SAID DURING THEIR MEETING LAST WEEK [INAUDIBLE] U.S. TOOK [INAUDIBLE] MEASURES. >>RIGHT. >>THAT’S WHY IT WAS SIGNIFICANT THAT HE SAID THE SANCTIONS ARE GOING TO STAY IN PLACE. >> EXACTLY. >>WHATEVER MESSAGE YOU’RE SENDING TO NORTH KOREA THAT’S ALL THEY CARE ABOUT, THAT LAST LINE THERE. >> YES. >>AND CRITICS ARE SAYING WHY SIT DOWN AT THE TABLE WITH KIM JONG-uN AGAIN WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO GET. >>RIGHT. >>THAT’S A GREAT POINT. THEOTHER SORT OF POINT THAT I WANT TO GET REACTION TO IS THE PRESIDENT TALKING ABOUT IMMIGRATION. I’M NOT SURE IF WEHAVE SOME SOUND FROM THAT. DOWE HAVE SOUND OF THE PRESIDENT TALKING ABOUT IMMIGRATION? >>I THINK IT MIGHT — >>OKAY. >>WHAT SPECIFICALLY WERE YOU THINKING OF? >>I WAS CURIOUS ABOUT WHAT HE SAID WHERE HE SAID ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION FUELS CRIME, VIOLENCE AND POVERTY REITERATING A THEME THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS WHETHER AT ONE OF HIS RALLIES OR REMARKS TO THE PRESS. . >>WHAT STANDS OUT IS THAT HE JUST LIKE WHEN THE CHAOS WAS UNFOLDING AT OUR OWN BORDER HERE HE DOES NOT MAKE THE DISTINCTION, UM, FOR REFUGEES FOR PEOPLE FLEEING THEIR HOME COUNTRIES. BECAUSE THEY FEEL LIKE THEY’VE HAD NO CHOICE BECAUSE THEY FEEL LIKE THEY’RE. [INAUDIBLE] WHO IS TRYING TO LEAVE THEIR COUNTRY AND GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. AND ITHINK THAT’S WHERE HE MAKES A MISTAKE [INAUDIBLE] AT THIS INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY YOU KNOW, IN A IS A VERY IMPORTANT DISTINCTION AND, AGAIN, [INAUDIBLE] HIS ARGUMENT THAT HE MAKES MORE SO FOR HIS BASE I WOULD SAY, UM, THAN ANY OTHER. YOU KNOW, SHOWS THAT IN HIS MIND HE ALWAYS KNOWS HIS AUDIENCE AND NOT NECESSARILY THE AUDIENCE SITTING RIGHT BEFORE HIM. >>ALL RIGHT. AT THE UN THANK YOU AS ALWAYS WE APPRECIATE IT. WE’LLTALK TO YOU A LITTLE BIT LATER. YOU’RE STICKING AROUND. SOLET’S TALK ABOUT CHINA. LET’SPLAY WHAT THE PRESIDENT HAD TO SAY ABOUT CHINA AND GET YOUR REACTION. . >>GO TO SOUND ON CHINA IN THE TRADE. >>THE UNITED STATES HAS JUST ANNOUNCED TARIFFS ON ANOTHER 2 $200 BILLION IN CHINESE MADE GOODS FOR A TOTAL SO FAR OF $250 BILLION. I HAVE GREAT RESPECT AND AFFECTION FOR MY FELONY, BUT I’VE MADE CLEAR OUR TRADE IMBASS IS YOU FELT JUST NOT ACCEPTABLE. CHINA’SMARKET DISTORTIONS AND THEY WAY THEY DEAL CANNOT BE TOLERATED. >>THE PRESIDENT SORT OF WALKING THE FINE LINE BETWEEN CRITICIZING THE CHINESE BUT ALSO TALKING ABOUT HOW HE’S GOT GREAT RESPECT. >>UM-HUM. EARLIER IN THESPEECH HE PRAISED CHINA FOR THEIR ASSISTANCE WITH NORTH KOREA. >>YEAH. IT’S IMPORTANT TO ITHINK HIGHLIGHT WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS SAYING ABOUT CHINA BECAUSE ON ONE HAND YOU DO HAVE TO WALK THE FINE LINE, CHINA IS A MASSIVE SOUP POWER AND THERE ARE PROBLEMS WITH THE WAY CHINA MANAGES ITS ECONOMY. THEQUESTION, OF COURSE, IS SOME CASES FOR EXAMPLE IT’S HURTING AMERICAN FARMERS AND MANUFACTURERS. >> YEAH. >>THAT’S THE LINE THAT HE’S TRYING TO THREAD. >>AND THE ADMINISTRATION HAS TO SUBSIDIZE THESE DECISIONS THEY’VE MADE ON TRADE TO BACK UP THEIR ACTIONS BECAUSE THEY’RE HURTING AMERICAN FARMERS AND THESE FOREIGN COUNTRIES AREN’T STUPID. THEY’RE GOING TO COMEBACK AT THE U.S. AND ARGET CITIES AND TARGET STATES THAT ARE KNOWN TO HAVE TRUMP SUPPORTERS. WE’RE COMING UP ONTHE MID-TERMS RIGHT NOW. SOTHEY WANT TO GO BACK AT THE U.S. AND HURT TRUMP WHERE IT HURTS THE MOST. IT’S ALSO A LITTLEBIT CONFUSING BECAUSE WE HAVE SEEN AS YOU SAID TRUMP SAY THAT CHINA HAS BEEN HELPFUL ON NORTH KOREA, BUT ACTUALLY THEY HAVEN’T BEEN ALL THAT HELPFUL ON NORTH KOREA. THEY’RE THE ONESTHAT ARE STILL FUELLING NORTH KOREA’S ECONOMY AND THE ONES THAT HAVE BEEN ALLOWING CERTAIN THINGS TO GO ACROSS A BORDER CONTINUALLY. >> RIGHT. >>I WONDER — LET’S TALK MORE ABOUT THIS IDEA OF SOVEREIGNTY AND FOCUSSING INWARD AND LESS GO AGREEING AND COMING TO THE TABLE WITH PARTNERS AND ALLIES AROUND THE WORLD. I WONDER THERE ARE ALOT OF PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY THAT LIKE THIS COURSE. THEYTHINK THE U.S. HAS BEEN TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF. I GUESS MYQUESTION IS TAKING A STEP BACK: THE IDEA THAT IN SOME INSTANCES THE UNITED STATES MAY NOT GET EVERYTHING THAT IT WANTS BUT IT DOES GET PEACE IN ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD WHERE COUNTRIES KNOW THAT IF THEY ATTEMPT AND — IF THEY ATTEMPT TO COMMIT GENERAL SIDE ON THEIR OWN PEOPLE THAT THE UNITED STATES WILL BE THERE TO PREVENT THAT FROM HAPPENING. BY THE PRESIDENT SAYING LOOK, DO WHAT YOU’VE GOT TO DO WITHIN YOUR OWN BORDERS, WE’RE GOING TO DO WHAT WE WANT TO DO, COULD BE DETRIMENTAL IN THE LONG- TERM, NOT FOR US, PEOPLE IN COUNTRIES WHERE GOVERNMENTS DO NOT TAKE ANY HINTS OR ADVICE FROM COUNTRIES LIKE THE UNITED STATES AND SAY I’M NOT GOING TO GET INVOLVED. >>RIGHT. AND A LOT OF TIMESFOREIGN POLICY AND AID IS STRATEGIC. THEY’RE THINKINGABOUT THE LONG GAME. AND SO WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID IN THIS SPEECH IS, YOU KNOW, IF THE U.S. IS GOING TO BE GIVING AID [INAUDIBLE] RESPECT US, THAT’S A LITTLE BIT OF A DIFFERENT TAKE ON WHAT U.S. FOREIGN POLICY HAS TRADITIONALLY FOLLOWED IN THE PAST. YOU KNOW,EGYPT IS NOT NECESSARILY A COUNTRY THAT ALWAYS RESPECTS THE UNITED STATES THEY’RE ONE OF OUR LARGEST RECIPIENTS OF FOREIGN AID AND THERE’S A REASON FOR THAT. %>>YEAH. >>BECAUSE THEY ARE A PILLAR OF STABILITY IN AN AREA WHERE THE U.S. WANTS TO SEE A STABLE MIDDLE EAST. >>UM-HUM. >>SORRY — >>GO AHEAD. >>THE LAST THING I WANT TO SAY IS THE QUESTION THEN BECOMES: IF THE UNITED STATES IS SEEDING AND SAYING WE’RE GOING TO FOCUS WITHIN MORE OF OUR OWN NATIONAL INTERESTS AND BORDERS, THEN THAT LEAVES A VACUUM AND WHO IS LEFT TO FILL THAT VACUUM SO TO YOUR POINT ABOUT NOT WORRYING ABOUT THE ELECTIONS, WORRYING ABOUT THE BASE IN 10 OR 15 YEARS WHEN — WHAT IT WAS BECAUSE OF CHINA SEEING THAT VACUUM AND SORT OF FILLING IT. I SEEN THATIN AFRICA FOR EXAMPLE. >>I THINK IT’S ALREADY BEEN HAPPENING. WE’VE SEEN CHINAWITH ITS ECONOMIC INFLUENCE ACROSS THE GLOBE. AND WE’RESEEING OTHER COUNTRIES — EXACTLY. >>YEAH, YOU KNOW, WHAT I WANTED TO PIVOT BACK TO IS THE IRAN DEAL. WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT MORE SOUND I WANTED TO PLAY AND TALK TO YOU ABOUT THE FACT THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS SAID BEFORE HE’D BE OPEN TO MEETING WITH THE PRESIDENT. >>UM-HUM. >>LET’S JUST LISTEN TO WHAT HE HAD TO SAY. >>IRAN’S LEADERS — [INAUDIBLE] DEATH AND DESTRUCTION. THEY DONOT RESPECT THEIR NEIGHBORS OR BORDERS OR THE SOVEREIGN RIGHTS OF NATIONS. INSTEAD, IRAN’SEADERS PLUNDER THE NATION’S RESOURCES TO ENRICH THEMSELVES AND TO SEPARATED MAYHEM ACROSS THE MIDDLE EAST AND FAR BEYOND. THAT IS WHY SO MANY COUNTRIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST STRONGLY SUPPORTED MY DECISION TO WITHDRAW THE UNITED STATES FROM THE HONORABLE 2015 IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL. AND REIMPOSE NUCLEAR SANCTIONS. . >>SO WHAT I THOUGHT WAS SORT OF INTERESTING ABOUT THOSE WORDS IS THAT IT WAS REALLY PERM ATTACK ON THE LEADERSHIP. I KNOW WE’VEBEEN HEARING THAT FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE. YOU KNOW,YOU’VE HEARD HIM OFTEN SAY IF THE PEOPLE OF IRON DON’T LIKE WHAT’S HAPPENING THEY SHOULD PROBABLY ADDRESS IT WITH THEIR LEADERSHIP. I HEARD A REINFORCEAM OF THAT. . >>I MEAN, AND TRUTH BE TOLD WE DON’T KNOW WHAT’S HAPPENING BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND BACK CHANNELS. LAST YEAR AT THE UNGENERAL ASSEMBLY IT WAS THE U.S. THAT WENT TO THE FRENCH AND ASK IF HE’D SIT DOWN WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE IRANIAN AS SAID NO. >>UM-HUM. >>BECAUSE THEY’RE FLOATING THAT OUT BECAUSE THEY REALLY DO WANT A MEETING TO HAPPEN BUT DON’T WANT TO BE EMBARRASSED ON THE PUBLIC WORLD STAGE, RIGHT? WHENWE LOOK AT IRAN WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A LOT MORE TOMORROW BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT IS HOSTING THE U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL MEETING AND THE U.S. WANTS IRAN TO BE THE FOCUS OF THAT. SO TRUMP IS PROBABLY GOING TO FACE SOME BLOW BACK FROM HIS ALLIES HONOR NOT SO SUPPORTIVE OF WHAT THE U.S. HAS DONE WITH REGARD TO PULLING OUT OF THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL. >>ALWAYS GRADE TO HAVE YOUR ANALYSIS AND YOUR REPORTING. THANK YOU FOR SPENDING SOME TIME WITH US. WE APPRECIATE IT. WE’RE GOING TO TAKE A QUICK BREAK. STICK AROUND WE’RE GOINGTO GET BACK TO YOU JUST AFTER THIS BREAK.

  1. I'm honestly amazed, completely amazed how people believe a speech, its all talk and double standards, hypocritical speech, but people sit there saying.. wow what a speech, what a man..
    Yes.. great speech but its just a fucken speech..
    The USA is all about globalism..
    A little less conversation a little more action.

  2. Csbn completely trying to pick the small things but it ain't persuading anyone on what a great speech that was. I hope all countries listen and act on Trump's words

  3. Most of the comments here are so uplifting and positive. This is more like how people really think. Don't believe the distortion the media tries to sell.

  4. no media air about this on tv it is just so sad for the stupid media like CNN. He has gust to say what is mean and how is done thing that will benefit for the American

  5. How about your relationship with the rogue terrorist State of Israel Prez Trump??? How about 9/11, how about Palestinian human rights, how about WarCrimesAgainstHumanity by the rogue terrorist State of Israel… how about that, we'd like to know more about that.

  6. THE BEST UNITED STATES PRESIDENT EVER!
    GLOBALISTS'NWO IS ON HOLD. TRUMP SAVED THE USA!
    USA IS AGAIN THE WORLD SUPER POWER.
    GOD BLESS TRUMP!

  7. He’s preaching about bringing about peace. The complete opposite the media has been portraying I’ve been paying attention.

  8. Speech (and relevant part of the video) ends at 35:10. Thank me later. Research and make your own mind up. I know it is harder, but it's always a best practice instead of blindly believing what others have to say.

  9. These media dummies are really DUMB…must be a thing about thinking they're celebrities, but for all they spout, the majority are dumber than mud.

  10. GREAT , MPRESSIVE AND EXCELLENT SPEECH . Sadly and shamelessly, the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA's FAKE NEWS MEDIA, is still desperately attempting to continue "PISSING IN OUR EYES AND CALLING IT RAIN ". This is a blatant insult to the general public, given the fact, that their broadcast licences, require these business firms, to disseminate NEWS. Their obvious dishonesty in reporting the news, demands that their licences be revoked.

  11. CBS is such a joke, these aren’t “journalists” they’re hacks. Stop showing your bias and just report the news.

  12. Thank all Gods and Goddesses that our President Trump is NOT a politician, but a fair, balanced man of integrity and good heart. I’ve despaired for my country for over fifty years, but now have hope. I do not agree with him on every issue – but I have come to trust him to lead us… as long as we work together to make peace and prosperity. If all you can do is criticize and snipe, please take your complaints elsewhere.

  13. LOVE FOR ALL OF EVERY WORDS YOU WERE EXPRESSED TO THIS PUB;IC HALL GREATLY Mr. GREAT PRESIDENT …. May God bless you ever . be safe

  14. You Rock Trump…..keep on keeping it Real !!! Thank you for NOT lying to us !!! May the Lord continue to Bless you in ALL that you do.

  15. Good morning, My love I just wanted to say as citizens we need to reinform our social security cards, format and update the color or something. The same way we're reinform our State ID's and driver license .

  16. NO political correctness TELL IT LIKE IT IS ITS ABOUT TIME WE GOT A PRESIDENT WHO STANDS UP FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

  17. I love my president and I will vote him back in office on the next election this beautiful country under God and if all Americans would open ther eyes and see what is really happening to our country understanding of all lives matter not just black or white but our fellow brothers being born in our wonderful country and seeing how lucky we all are having rights at all because in any other country the unnecessary protest and disrespectful comments on not only our president but people who are supporting our rights to love n defend our president I'm a Hispanic women who don't make excuses why he is in office and understand WE NEED TO PUT AMERICA FIRST no race card or personal beliefs in the world trade in making our country great again

  18. Dude you gotta admit, he’s standing a room with world leaders most of whom hate him, and does it with his nuts hanging out. Calling them out like a savage.

  19. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58S6dwHdWDM&t=10s ARE YOU A WARRIOR? DO YOU HAVE BROWN SKIN? ARE YOU FROM NORTH OR SOUTH AMERICA? THEN YOU MIGHT BE AN AZTEC OR A MAYAN WARRIOR. CLICK THE LINK TO DIG DEEP INTO YOUR ANCESTRAL PRE-HISPANIC ROOTS! LIKED AND SUBSCRIBED.

  20. PODUS trying to tell what he's done in just past two yrs..KEPT HIS PROMISE! First to put US CITZ First! Keeping anymore disease out of US(9 disease entered so America to LA CA..Non treatable TB(Resistant)..Tuberculosis! (CDC REPT)! Disease not racist! Disease REAL! This isn't a game! Action not just flapping Gum lip service for all US Citz! Vote PODUS 2020!

  21. The U.N. is now criminal!  The U.N. does exactly what they want to do! no matter how hateful, criminal, etc., such as raping a 12 year old in front of her parents then impaling her on a fence.  Yeah, that's your "peaceful, United Nations" stands for.  That and many, many more atrocities.  Look them up!!!

  22. The start for a "New world Order" or one world Government, but first they must create fear somehow. And then a treaty will be made for all nations to be under control of one world Government in order to satisfy everyone's "peace."

  23. American as you can get! Telling them how its going to be with them right there in the room. You think Oboma would have done something like this? No he had 8 years and only gave them 💰

    God bless President Trump!

  24. Our leader, our glorious leader
    PRESIDENT Donald J. Trump he brought America back up on its feet. While bringing down the Clinton empire.

  25. Globalist media talking heads ….think their safe. Useful idiots, ……they came after the nationalists and I did nothing because I wasn't a nationalists… they will soon come after you and there will be no one there to defend you…..If globalism is not crushed.

  26. you stupid liberals laugh at him how about you try and do half the things this man has. stop hating like kinderkarten kids. if you don't like how he runs the country then get out of it. your stupid ideals might be better if slaughtered in some communist country, as you should be. go trump

  27. It's time for a public display of solidarity for America.. thousands of people with large red MAGA banners in peaceful marches, MAGA signs plastered everywhere, push back on socialist victim ideology hypocrisy..

  28. Why hasnt the orange man has said anything bad? ooooh because he his speaking the truth and hes making the world into peace

  29. I'm not sure just what speech these dismal self aggrandized drones doing the commentary listened to. President Trump owes them no explanation regarding plans and strategy . It's obvious that they sat and ruminated just waiting for elements that they could use to give the perception of their own superior intellect. The UN is a waste and needs to be moved to Russia.

  30. I just wanted to
    HEAR’DA’SPEECH
    NEAR’DA’BEACH
    BOOOYYYYYYY!
    I don’t need any of the anti American cbs garbage that came afterwards.

  31. The Deep State is in jealous of the President for his great speech at ease ,without any prompting.Its a question how many American leaders can hold a candle in front of him.I challenge.He does because he speaks truth.TRUTH prevails till the end.Long live TRUMP,Long live America.

  32. Mr. Trump

    I am in fear for your health. Since inaugurated you look older by at least 10 years. In the meantime , please peruse anti trust in Buffet and Morgan until you regain control.

  33. I'm here in Britain and honestly, Donald is a very passionate man and is helping the USA through everything. Everyone should be proud of him.

  34. This is a man who is sending the message to the world that I am holding onto MY POWER & you better stay away if you threaten me against anything I say. Sounded like he was looking in a mirror and describing himself about "those trying to control everyone".
