President Trump addressed the United Nations General Assembly today and laid a staunchly nationalist platform.
Here's how it went down:
- Trump at the UN: He took shots at China during his UN address today, accusing the nation of breaking promises to the international community to "adopt promised reforms." Trump also took a shot at Venezuela's Nicolás Maduro in his speech, calling him a "dictator" and a "Cuban puppet." He called Iran's regime one of the "greatest security threats facing peace-loving nations" and urged nations not to "subsidize Iran's bloodlust."
- Meanwhile: Trump took questions about his reported attempt to convince Ukraine's leader to investigate a political rival during a summer phone call. He called the prospect that he could be impeached over the scandal "ridiculous" and "a witch hunt."
- What to expect tomorrow: Trump will meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on the sidelines of the summit.
