Trump Terms Iran “World Leading Terrorism Sponsor”

New York(September 25, 2018): US president Donald Trump has urged the international community to join the US in isolating Iran as he delivered a combative speech to the United Nations.

In a keynote address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York, Mr. Trump began by focusing on his own political achievements, claiming that his administration had accomplished “almost more than any other administration in the history of our country”. His statement elicited laughter from the packed chamber, prompting Mr. Trump to say “didn’t expect that reaction”. While last year Mr. Trump denounced North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as “little Rocket Man” this year he thanked Mr. Kim for his “courage”, highlighting the dialogue between the US and North Korea under his presidency.

Instead, Mr. Trump turned his ire to Iran. Months after the US pulled out of the 2015 nuclear deal, Mr Trump denounced the Iranian regime as the “leading sponsor of terrorism”.“We cannot allow the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism to possess the world’s most dangerous weapons,” he said.

In a wide-ranging speech, Mr Trump hit on many of the protectionist themes that helped propel him to the White House. Denouncing countries for taking advantage of America’s economy, he said that his administration had already started to renegotiate “broken and bad trade deals”. America would “not be taken advantage of any longer,” he said.
