President Trump is set to deliver his first speech ever to the United Nations General Assembly, and he is expected to talk about what his “America First” vision will mean for the rest of the world.
The address is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. EST.
The speech will be a defining moment for international politics since Trump does not have a particularly positive relationship with the United Nations. In the past, Trump has dismissed the organization as “a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time,” and he commented yesterday that the U.N. has an inefficient bureaucracy and poor management.
Indications suggest that Trump will use his speech to mobilize the international community against threats from Iran and North Korea. The Kim Jong Un regime has flouted international condemnation with their most recent, threatening provocations. Trump is likely to make a call to action against the rogue nation’s weapons tests, as well as Iran’s destabilizing, hostile influence in the Middle East.
White House officials have also hinted that Trump’s address will explain what his nationalist political views will mean for global cooperation. Trump is expected to present a worldview where individual nations focus on their self-interest while seeking cooperative solutions for international concerns.
