In light of President Trump’s long-awaited speech before the U.N., U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said Trump’s speech was designed in such way to “slap” those who needed a slap and “hug” those who were deserving of one. deserved a hug.
Trump justified Haley’s statement, as he opened up fiercely on North Korea, condemning it along with the Islamic Republic of Iran. At the same time, he praised longtime ally, Israel, on everything they’ve done for and together with America.
In his speech, the POTUS asked that extra pressure is applied on North Korea, while telling Iran they need to be more careful and observant of their actions, before it’s too late.
“It is far past time for the nations of the world to confront another reckless regime, one that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing death to America, destruction to Israel, and ruin for many leaders and nations in this room,” Trump stated.
In addition, Trump addressed the Iranian government alongside their “false” democracy, adding it was Iran that their economy suffered the most. “Rather than use its resources to improve Iranian lives, its oil profits go to fund Hezbollah and other terrorists that kill innocent Muslims and attack their peaceful Arab and Israeli neighbors.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seemed to have agreed with the comment Trump made, taking pride in the fact that someone stood up for them in a period of silence.
Trump, however, seemed to have touched a sore spot with the Syrians, stating, “This wealth, which rightly belongs to Iran’s people, also goes to shore up Bashar al-Assad’s dictatorship, fuel Yemen’s civil war, and undermine peace throughout the entire Middle East.”
“We cannot let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building dangerous missiles and we cannot abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear program,” he continued.
“The Iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into,” Trump said. “Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States, and I don’t think you’ve heard the last of it. Believe me.”
The Iranians were naturally not happy with the remarks.
Trump ended his speech by asking the Iranians to release many of the captive foreign nationals and political prisoners, as well as demanding they showed respect for other nations. He closed by stating it is not in their best interest to encourage radical Islam and/or terrorism.
Take a look at Trump’s full speech below:
Israel’s Netanyahu was beaming in satisfaction, especially after Trump made a fair point on Iran. The speech was intended to deliver an unyielding message to every country in the world that does not seem to like America- that we won’t ever back down from keeping our country safe.
Iran needed to hear all of the above, and so did North Korea. Hopefully, this will be a learning experience for them, before matters escalate any further. It is still admirable the fact that President Trump did not shy away from being determined and strict when addressing today’s issues. For that, we are thankful.
