Global leaders gathered today in New York City for the annual United Nations General Assembly.
Here's how it went down:
- Climate summit: The UN arranged a special Climate Action Summit today. Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg delivered a speech at the summit, telling leaders, "You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words — and yet, I'm one of the lucky ones. People are suffering, people are dying." President Trump, who was initially expected to skip the event, attended the climate session. He left after 15 minutes for his own summit.
- Trump also held a summit: The President organized a religious freedom event, where he announced US funding for protecting religious sites and relics. The event focused on combating religious persecution around the globe.
- The Ukraine drama: Trump faced questions on the Ukraine matter as he went from meeting to meeting at the United Nations today.
- What to expect this week: Trump will deliver remarks at the UN tomorrow morning. He's expected to focus on national sovereignty and individual nations' responsibility for self-defense. On Wednesday, Trump will meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on the sidelines of the summit.
