Bolton: US Will Be "Aggressive and Unwavering" On Iran Oil Sanctions

Trump touts his own achievements, and the U.N. laughs

Trump touts his own achievements, and the U.N. laughs

Without naming President Trump, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani blasted the United States during his U.N. General Assembly address on Tuesday, suggesting Mr. Trump had "xenophobic tendencies resembling a Nazi disposition", among other criticisms. "It illicitly procures sensitive items to advance its ballistic missile program", Trump said, calling on worldwide partners to pressure Iran to end its missile work. "We were having fun", Trump said on Wednesday.

Trump, in his speech before the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, said in the first minute: "In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than nearly any administration in the history of our country".

"They weren't laughing at me", Trump said.

Tensions have soared between Beijing and Washington after Trump this week slapped new tariffs covering $200 billion in Chinese goods exported to the United States.

Both Trump and Rouhani have dismissed speculation that they could meet on the sidelines of the United Nations summit.

"It's very complicated and I think it would only work in a limited way", a senior European diplomat said on condition of anonymity because the discussions are confidential. His threats are aimed at inflaming tensions, preventing any possibility that his boss might negotiate with Iran, and goading Iran into to doing something that could justify a US attack.

On Wednesday, Trump claimed that reports the crowd laughed at him were "fake news".

Here's What Brett Kavanaugh's College Roommate Has To Say
I thought that knowledge of his actions could be useful for you and those in charge of choosing among the various candidates. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell predicted Kavanaugh will be confirmed, saying, "I'm confident we're going to win".

He went on to say that the group was mostly from other countries as if he didn't know what the United Nations was.

The laughter erupted after Trump told the Assembly his Administration had "accomplished more than nearly any in the history of our country".

The United States has moved to reimpose sanctions that had been lifted under the deal to curb Iran´s nuclear program and has vowed to isolate Tehran, which it accuses of stoking conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen.

After the Trump administration walked away from the deal last May, Iranian officials tried to intimidate the European Union into capitulating, warning that Iran would also quit the nuclear deal.

"Trump really does not care about other country's systems, so he means not to interfere in that". "The U.S. president finds himself deprived of leverage, while Rouhani is the one invoking the legitimacy and legality of the global system the United States built". However, he added that sanctions on the nation will stay in place "until denuclearization occurs".

"The biggest difference between Trump's 2018 and 2017 UNGA speeches is how he characterized North Korea (the DPRK)", said Ferrier. As Trump praised Kim's "courage" on Tuesday, he unloaded harsh rhetoric on nuclear-aspirant Iran as a persistent malign influence across the Middle East.
