Trump brings rare laughter to United Nations summit

Donald Trump calls for isolating Iran at UNGA speech The Internet Can’t Get Enough Of Trump Getting Laughed At During His United Nations Speech

"[Kim] said he hoped Mike Pompeo would visit North Korea soon, and also a second summit with Trump would take place in the near future, in order to move the denuclearisation process along quickly", Mr Moon said.

US President Donald Trump raises his glass in a toast during a luncheon for world leaders at the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, September 25, 2018. "He'll call on every country to join our pressure campaign in order to thwart Iran's global torrent of destructive activity".

Rouhani took the podium a few hours after Trump called for Iran's isolation in his United Nations address, accusing the leadership of Iran of sowing "chaos, death and destruction" as he defended his decision to ditch the Iran nuclear accord.

Let my message today be clear: "We are watching, and we will come after you", he will say. They bubbled into chuckles as Trump added a casual "so true".

In an exchange with reporters after his speech, Trump expressed hope that the USA relationship with Iran could eventually follow the same trajectory as its relationship with North Korea - where the prospect of sanctions relief has led Pyongyang to discuss ending its nuclear program.

Mr Trump also boasted that his administration had accomplished "more than nearly any" other in USA history. "Sanctions remain until denuclearization".

Furthermore, Trump urged heavy pressure both on Iran and Washington's trading partners as he offered a robust defence of the USA right to go it alone.

In May, Trump withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal under which Iran relinquished its nuclear material in exchange for relief from financial sanctions.

On Tuesday, Trump touted "tremendous progress" in his negotiations with Kim, even though the North Korean leader has so far taken few concrete steps to eliminate his country's illicit nuclear program.

President Trump addresses the 73rd session of the U.N. General Assembly in NY on Tuesday.

Trump used the speech to criticize the U.N. Human Rights Council which he describes as a "grave embarrassment" for "shielding egregious human rights abusers while bashing America and its many friends".
