President Trump calls on allies to isolate Iran

26 September, 2018, 17:23 | Author: Teresa Adams
  • After his fiery speech before the U.N. a year ago President Trump returns to this week to address the General Assembly and talk about nuclear proliferation

The White House promised Monday to keep exerting "maximum pressure" on Iran and said new sanctions were in the pipeline while insisting that the United States was not seeking the overthrow of Tehran's clerical regime, AFP reports.

Later, German delegates were shown laughing at Trump again when he claimed the country "will become totally dependent" on Russian oil. "We ask all nations to isolate Iran's regime as long as its aggression continues", Trump told the UN General Assembly.

He said 'we are standing up for America and for the American people, and we are also standing up for the world'. As laughter spread across the chamber, Trump said, "So true".

It is unusual for a U.S. president to draw unintentional laughs at a gathering of world leaders, and Trump has long complained that foreign governments are laughing at the United States for what he views as weak policies on trade and other issues.

The reaction on social media was typically huge as fans took the chance to mock Ronaldo's misfortune and particularly his tears. Ronaldo has scored two goals in five games for Juve since arriving at the club from Real Madrid in July.

"This is one year later, a much different time". "I am sure he is an absolutely lovely man", Trump wrote in a post on Twitter.

Trump also thanked the global community for its support in the denuclearization campaign, singling out South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

His second remark received a larger laugh from the assembly as Trump acknowledged the initial laughter.

Speaking to the United Nations General Assembly in New York, Trump said his Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in June was "highly productive".

"We can not allow a regime that chants "Death to America" and that threatens Israel with annihilation, to possess the means to deliver a nuclear warhead to any city on Earth", he said.

He said that preventing Iran from exporting oil would be "very risky".

"We must protect our sovereignty and our cherished independence above all", said Trump.

In his speech, Trump said the U.S. is a "stronger, safer and richer country" than when he took office in January 2017.
