Trump bashes N. Korea at UN: ‘Rocket man is on a suicide mission’
At first, Trump did not directly name the North Korean leader, using his nickname for the “dear leader” instead.
“Rocket man is on a suicide mission,” Trump said.
He continued, “No nation on earth has an interest in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles. 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. Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing, and able but hopefully this will not be necessary.”
Trump then called on all nations to isolate the Kim regime in light of its “reckless pursuit” of nuclear weapons and treatment of its citizens.
He also called it “an outrage” that some nations continue to trade with North Korea. At other points, Trump referred to North Korea as “depraved” and “twisted.”
Earlier in his speech, Trump touted his “America First” views and the importance of national sovereignty.
“As president of the United States, I will always put America first just like you, as the leaders of your countries as always and should always put your countries first,” Trump said.
“We can no longer be taken advantage of or enter into a deal,” he went on.
He started his speech underscoring the strength of the U.S., praising the country’s economic growth and stressing the importance of individual nations’ sovereignty.
He said that “companies are moving back creating job growth” and “our military will soon be the strongest it has ever been.”
“In America we do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone but rather let it shine as an example for everyone to watch,” he said.
Trump noted that America stands for “principled realism rooted in shared goals [and] values.”
“We must work together and confront together those who threaten us with chaos,” he said
