The UN was laughing WITH me, not at me

  • On the opening day of the General Assembly debate Trump and Rouhani are to take their turn at the podium four months after the US president ditched the Iran nuclear deal

However, Trump had said on Tuesday that he had no plans to meet with Iranian leader Hassan Rouhani at the United Nations "despite requests" to do so.

Meanwhile, National Security Adviser John Bolton was adament that regime change in Iranian leadership is "not the administration's policy". Trump called it "horrible" and maintained that many Middle Eastern countries had supported the decision to withdraw.

The other parties to the deal, under which Iran agreed to curbs on its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief, remain in the agreement and met Monday in NY to reaffirm their support for it.

Trump said the bad policies helped create an $800 billion US trade deficit.

As is typical, Fox News tweeted out clips of Trump's speech Tuesday morning to the United Nations General Assembly.

All these showed that Washington, by exiting the deal and sanctioning Iran, has put itself in isolation, Rouhani said. "We are not alone". "We are not isolated; America is isolated". Their efforts to isolate Iran, he said, were "neutralized".

Trump blasts 'con job' on Kavanaugh before showdown hearing
Senators were told to be prepared for a rare weekend session and McConnell said he was confident Kavanugh would be confirmed. Clune is among those asking that the FBI open a new investigation into the sexual assault claims against Kavanaugh.

Trump later claimed he meant to make the audience laugh. "Those who are used to politics, their tone and language is different". The president has a strong advantage over Rouhani in this regard, which he alluded to in statements on Tuesday, but it doesn't guarantee Iran will sit down at the negotiation table.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo repeated the offer on Sunday and also extended it to Khamenei. "What he said was not diplomatic at all".

President Rouhani said: "It is unfortunate that we are witnessing rulers in the world who think they can secure their interests better or at least in the short-term ride public sentiments and gain popular support through the foment of extremists, nationalism and racism". "America in Syria, the presence is illegal", he said.

The United States has moved to reimpose sanctions that had been lifted under the 2015 deal to curb Iran's nuclear program and has vowed to punish foreign firms that do business with Iran.

Rouhani was defiant in his speech to the world body. Trump has said sanctions on North Korea would remain for now. "If America returns to abiding by laws we have no problem with them".

Rouhani, however, added at the press conference that Tehran had no intension to go to war with US forces in the Middle East. They do not respect their neighbors or borders or the sovereign rights of nations. He has disrupted the world order by withdrawing the United States from the nuclear deal and the Paris climate accord, and threatened to punish North Atlantic Treaty Organisation nations for not paying more for their common defense. The United States looks forward to working with you to strengthen our communities, protect our families, and deliver a drug-free future for all of our children, " he said. "This does not benefit the Iranian people, it does not benefit the American people or Europe".
