Despite Criticism Of UN, Trump Set To Attend Meeting Of World Leaders

  • Donald Trump is set to explain his foreign policy vision at the United Nations General Assembly next week

As he welcomes leaders from almost 200 nations to his hometown of NY, he will press them to join USA efforts to constrain missile and nuclear programs in both North Korea and Iran.

A North Korean state agency threatened Thursday to use nuclear weapons to "sink" Japan and reduce the United States to "ashes and darkness" for supporting a U.N. Security Council resolution and sanctions over the latest nuclear test.

Former top White House aide Steve Bannon told a reporter in August that there are no military solutions for North Korea.

Earlier this week, the UN Security Council agreed to tighten sanctions on North Korea, banning its textile exports and capping fuel supplies.

McMaster sent a mixed message on Friday, insisting that the U.S. retained a "military option" in dealing with North Korea even while calling on "everyone to do everything we can to address the global problem short of war". Now, however, with North Korea perilously close to being able to directly threaten USA cities with nuclear obliteration, the worry for some is that Pyongyang could blackmail Washington into qualifying or limiting its support for its allies in the region.

Trump said America and its allies will never be intimidated. "This includes the regime of North Korea, which has once again shown its utter contempt for its neighbors and for the entire world community". "We must make North Korea understand this", Abe said.


The Security Council's reaction came a day after North Korea fired an intermediate-range missile from Pyongyang over northern Japan yesterday.

The Trump administration appears to be reaching its limit with North Korea. More specifically, China and Russian Federation want the U.S.to accept North Korea's demand to cease joint military exercises with South Korea to bring the Kim regime to the negotiating table. But the North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD) had said the ballistic missile did not pose a threat to North America.

Promoting an "America First" agenda at the United Nations. The US must follow through on Defence Secretary Mattis's much needed "iron-clad" guarantees to Japan and South Korea by reinforcing America's military presence in the region.

"I personally think he slaps the right people, he hugs the right people, and he comes out with the U.S. being very strong in the end", said Haley, who has seen a draft of Trump's address.

Trump has called the nuclear agreement between Iran and six major powers, which requires Teheran to reduce its nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief, "the worst deal ever negotiated". She expected a Trump call for maximum pressure on North Korea.
