Donald Trump Literally Laughed At By World Leaders During United Nations Speech

"In other words, the United States is stronger, safer, and a richer country than it was when I assumed office two years ago".

Mr Trump argued that since the deal was signed in 2015, "Iran's aggression only increased" and that funds released from the lifting of sanctions had been used "to support terrorism, build nuclear capable missiles and foment chaos".

Pompeo argues that the president's focus on defending American sovereignty has paid dividends for both the USA and the rest of the world.

The United States will not tell you how to live or work or worship.

As one of our loyal readers, we ask you to be our partner.

Barely an hour before he spoke, in fact, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres declared to the assembly that global cooperation is the world's best hope and "multilateralism is under fire precisely when we need it most".

A year after calling North Korean leader Kim Jong-un "little rocket man" from the United Nations podium, Trump thanked Kim for working with the return American hostages and the remains of soldiers killed in the Korean conflict.

Trump told the annual gathering: "They do not respect their neighbors or borders or the sovereign rights of nations".

Trump often criticised former US President Barack Obama's approach to foreign affairs and claimed the world was "laughing" at the country under Obama's leadership.

Asked about the offer of talks, Khamenei's top aide, Ali Akbar Velayati, said "Trump's and Pompeo's dream would never come to reality", according to the IRNA news agency.

Trump, while vowing that the United States is determined to act alone, urged all nations to isolate Iran - whose arch-enemies Saudi Arabia and Israel are close to his administration.

Tensions between the USA and Iran have soared since Trump, an outspoken critic of Tehran, took office last January.

Donald Trump is expected to level new charges against Iran when he chairs the UN Security Council session on the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

During discussions of Russian meddling, Trump has long argued that other countries might have also meddled, including China, or that Russia might not have interfered at all.

"So true", the president said, eliciting several muffled laughs. "We will not allow our workers to be victimized, our companies to be cheated, and our wealth to be plundered and transferred". It came a day after Trump told the United Nations he rejects what he calls the ideology of globalism. "And we embrace the doctrine of patriotism".

Some countries, including Japan, are reportedly seeking waivers from the looming oil sanctions, though it's unclear if the US will grant such requests.

Trump said his administration has added four million new jobs including half a million manufacturing jobs and has passed the biggest tax cuts and reforms in American history.
