CNN’s quick take on Donald Trump’s speaking to the UN today:
President Donald Trump warned Tuesday that the US would “totally destroy North Korea” if forced to defend itself or its allies.
“The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,” Trump said during his first address to the UN General Assembly.
The President also suggested he plans to scrap the Iran nuclear deal, calling it an “embarrassment to the US” and saying it was a mistake to enter into the agreement at all. And Trump stated bluntly that certain parts of the world are “going to hell,” suggesting it was within the UN’s power to reverse course.
