If US has to defend itself, we will 'totally destroy' North Korea

If US has to defend itself, we will 'totally destroy' North Korea

SHAPIRO: Well, speaking of the script, briefly give us a preview of what he's expected to say in his address tomorrow.

"Rocket man is on a suicide mission", Trump said.

It was a characteristically bombastic approach to a crisis that's growing in scale.

Mr. Trump is fourth in line to deliver remarks before the General Assembly today. He bluntly described some regions of the world as "going to hell".

Those who have seen the text of his speech said Trump will call on United Nations members to confront Pyongyang over its nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missile programs, and block them before North Korea's military becomes more formidable, according to administration sources.

"We meet at a time of both enormous promise and great peril", Trump said, calling it up to the nations gathered at the UN General Assembly whether the world grows to "new heights" or falls "into a valley of disrepair".

"On the one hand, he's suggested to North Korea that they need to work with the United Nations to denuclearize the Korean peninsula".

He directed similar ire toward Iran, which he accused of supporting terrorists and destabilizing the region.

Suu Kyi, 72, is banned from the presidency by the military-drafted constitution because her children have British citizenship. There have been allegations and counter-allegations.

Trump labeled Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's government a dictatorship, said it "has inflicted bad pain and suffering" and imposed a "failed ideology" on its people, and threatened unspecified USA intervention.

"We can not abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear program", he said.

"They respect neither their own citizens nor the sovereign rights of their countries", he said. "I don't think you've heard the last of it", he said, calling Iran an "economically depleted rogue state" that exports violence.

Shifting his attention to the Middle East, Trump said America will revisit its agreement with Iran to stop the Islamic country from its nuclear program. U.S. officials say Trump is still weighing his next moves and plans to announce his intentions next month.

"The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented", he said.

Turning to Venezuela, Trump called the collapsing situation there "completely unacceptable" and said the USA "cannot stand by and watch". But the issues at the United Nations are broader, and the geographic spread of Trump's audience wider. Trump is expected to present a worldview where individual nations focus on their self-interest while seeking cooperative solutions for worldwide concerns.

"I will always put American first".

But it was the President's repeated emphasis on these terms that sent an unambiguous message to world leaders - particularly those hopeful that Trump might soften his nationalist ideology in favor of a more cooperative bend toward the world - that he is still strongly committed to the nationalist principles that fueled his political rise.

Hurricane Jose Has Shifted Its Track
Maria poses a significant threat to the Caribbean, the same areas that were impacted by Hurricane Irma a little over a week ago. National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Simpson said the category 1 storm is essentially guaranteed to create rip currents.

"America does not impose its way of life on anyone".

"The president spent an enormous amount of time crafting, developing and fine-tuning his address in every respect", according to the senior White House official.

After first tweeting it days earlier, Trump himself publicly uttered his new moniker for the North Korean dictator during his speech on Tuesday.

He said other countries can learn from his nationalism to put their peoples' needs first but also co-operate with other countries to beat back the threats to the world.

But Trump's use of the phrase Tuesday was a signal to his base that the President is still behind his hardline views on terrorism - particularly after a week during which he's wavered on other campaign promises that animated his base, like protections for certain undocumented immigrants. "Our military will soon be the strongest it has ever been". "Yet in recent years, the United Nations has not reached its full potential because of bureaucracy and mismanagement". His first remarks as president here on Monday were centered on reforming the institution's practices.

Trump warned that as chief executive of the United States - a founding member of the UN and its biggest financial contributor - he wants a better return on his investment.

"Our success depends on a coalition of strong and independent nations that embrace their sovereignty, to promote security, prosperity, and peace, for themselves and for the world". He made little mention of Russian Federation.

The speech drew varying reactions from leaders.
