Trump warns of 'rogue nation' threat in speech to UN

Trump called North Korea a "depraved regime" and urged member nations to turn up the pressure on Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons - or else the USA will have to step in.

"Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for him and his regime", Trump said of Kim.

But the speech also appeared to be in reference to Trump, who has warned of "fire and fury" awaiting North Korea if it continues to threaten the United States. But hopefully, this will not be necessary.

"And it was only for the reason that the United Nations was here that that turned out to be such a successful project", he said. And he scolded nations that he said have enabled and traded with North Korea, seeming to slight China, though he did not mention it by name. Lets see how they do.

Tuesday will bring a steady flow of big speeches at the United Nations General Assembly in NY, where world leaders will lay out their visions for humanity and address global crises from North Korea to Venezuela.

He went on to emphasize the importance of UN member nations working together to isolate the Kim Jong-un regime.

"Focus more on people and less on bureaucracy", Trump said during a special session on United Nations reform ahead of the General Debate that begins Tuesday. The forces of destruction only gather power and strength ...

North Korea fired a missile over Japan earlier this month and tested a hydrogen bomb, prompting Trump to insist that "all options were on the table" in an implied threat of pre- emptive military action.

A spokesman for United Nations secretary-general Antonio Guterres said at the time such cuts: "would simply make it impossible for the United Nations to continue all of its essential work advancing peace, development, human rights and humanitarian assistance". The Summit presents the U.S leader an opportunity to make his agenda known, at a time when the world faces escalating nuclear threat from North Korea, the spread of terrorism and the contentious climate change debacle.

More broadly, Guterres said all countries need to have a greater commitment to ridding the world of nuclear weapons.

He said Tehran can not be allowed to continue developing its "dangerous missiles".

Trump also castigated the Iran nuclear deal and said the Iranian regime's longest suffering victims are its own people.

The highlight was, as expected, U.S. President Donald Trump's keynote speech at his first appearance at a General Assembly session since his inauguration in January.

He denounced the West's nuclear deal with Tehran as an "embarrassment" - the latest sign Mr Trump wants to rip up or renegotiate the landmark 2015 accord. "Believe me", Trump said.

Fourteen minutes into his speech, Trump attacked North Korea and said the United Nations member states must work together to confront "rogue regimes".
