27 September 2018

President Donald Trump addresses the United Nations Security Council during the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly, at UN headquarters, September 26, 2018. "America is governed by Americans".

Trump added, "So true".

Rouhani pointed to a session of the Security Council chaired by Trump earlier Wednesday, where the leaders of Britain and France backed the nuclear deal, as well as a statement by European powers who say they will find ways to continue business with Iran and evade impending sanctions.

The European Union's foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said earlier on Wednesday that the a special objective vehicle was under consideration to allow trade with Iran without being subject to United States financial pressure.

A gavel-wielding Trump vowed that re-imposed sanctions will be "in full force" and urged world powers to work with the U.S. to "ensure the Iranian regime changes its behaviour and never acquires a nuclear bomb". The reaction he received from the assembled world leaders wasn't what he was expecting.

Leftist Bolivian President Evo Morales bluntly declared that "the United States does not care about human rights or justice".

Trump also commended Kim Jong Un for reaffirming his commitment to denuclearization, prosperity and peace for the peninsula.

In May, Trump withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal under which Iran relinquished its nuclear material in exchange for relief from financial sanctions.

"Permanent members of the UN Security Council must not attack and undermine the global nonproliferation regimes and the institutions that underpin them", Macron said.

In his address a year ago to the UN, Trump insulted Kim as a "rocket man" bent on nuclear destruction.

Asked what North Korea had to do before his next meeting with Kim, Trump said, the two had made "a tremendous amount of progress" since past year. On Tuesday, Trump praised Kim for halting nuclear and missile tests, releasing Americans held prisoner and returning some remains of United States soldiers killed in the 1950s Korean War.

"Regrettably we found that China has been attempting to interfere in our upcoming 2018 election coming up in November against my administration", he charged. "These are not things that can be manipulated by a decision here or there", said Gargash, whose country is an OPEC member.
