Trump calls Iran “world’s leading sponsor of terrorism”

Share This

Donald Trump was forced to pause his UN speech amid laughter at claims he has “accomplished almost more than any administration in the history of our country”.

In an almost 40-minute address to the assembled United Nations General Assembly members in New York, he reserved his most stinging remarks for Iran, who he described as the “world’s leading sponsor of terrorism”.

He also praised his team in Washington for its work surrounding the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula and touched on some of the world’s most devastating conflicts, including Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Venezuela.

Opening his speech, he said: “One year ago I stood before you at this grand hall. I addressed the threats facing our world and presented a vision for a brighter future.

“Today, I stand before the United Nations  to share the extraordinary progress we’ve made.

“In less than two years, my administration has accomplished almost more than any administration in the history of our country.”

Laughter and applause filled the room, forcing the President to pause, before continuing: “America…it’s so true…I didn’t expect that reaction, but OK.”


Ahead of his address to the United Nations General Assembly, President Donald Trumphas said he had no plans to meet with Iranian leader Hassan Rouhani at the gathering of world leaders “despite requests” to do so.
