"We have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea", Trump said.

Earlier Monday, during a session focused on reforming the United Nations, Trump offered his support for reform while stressing the importance "that no one and no member state shoulders a disproportionate share of the burden, and that's militarily or financially".

Speaking of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, Trump said he's on a "suicide mission".

"If the righteous many don't confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph", Trump said.

Loud murmurs filled the hall after Trump's "totally destroy" comment, Reuters reports. with North Korea's ambassador had left his seat before Trump arrived.

Trump called the North's actions "twisted" and said no nation has an interest in North Korea strengthening its fire power.

The UN Security Council has imposed several rounds of sanctions on North Korea over its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.

It was Trump's first address to the UN General Assembly.

"I don't think you've heard the last of it", he said.

Now, in an interview with 21 News, Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown says the rhetoric used by Pres. Trump "makes us less safe". On the refugee crises across the globe, Trump said the USA supported resettling refugees as close to their home nations as possible.

"Time and time again, President Trump has threatened to curtail the United States' obligations to the global human rights system and to the United Nations itself, " said Jessica Stern, executive director of OutRight Action worldwide. He called it "one of the worst and one-sided transactions the USA has ever entered into".

"The United States has great strength and patience".

Reading from a script, Mr Trump promised the United States military would soon be the strongest it has ever been.

Closer home, talking about situation in Venezuela and Cuba, he spoke about futility of socialism as an ideology and said the USA can't simply sit and watch what's going on in these countries.

Trump said all responsible leaders have an obligation to serve their own citizens, and the nation-state remains the best vehicle for elevating the human condition.

It is possible that Trump is employing the "Madman Theory" employed to great usefulness by Presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. As long as I hold this office, I will defend America's interests above all else.
