WATCH LIVE: Trump Addresses United Nations General Assembly


President Donald Trump is set to deliver a major speech before the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday.

The speech, his second before the UN, will start at 10:15 a.m. EST.

National Security Adviser John Bolton said on Fox News over the weekend that Trump “will talk a lot about American sovereignty, how that fits into America’s place in the world as a whole.”

“And we have got major issues with two of the world’s other powers, China on trade and on broader issues of geostrategic conflict, and Russia, where we’re confronting in a number of different areas,” Bolton said.

Bolton added that “nonproliferation policies, dealing with the nuclear threats of North Korea and Iran” will also come up during at the summit this week.

Though Trump is expected to tout his America First foreign policy, it will be hard for him to match the bluster of his inaugural UNGA speech, where he said North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un was a “rocket man” on a “suicide mission” whose “depraved” country the U.S. could “totally destroy.”

According to NPR, “[part] of Trump’s mission at the U.N. this year will be promoting his warmer ties with North Korea as a foreign policy success, while also calling on nations to keep up pressure on Pyongyang through sanctions.”
