Today Mr Trump criticised much of the UN’s work including; the Iran deal, the human rights council, the international criminal court, OPEC, multilateral trade agreements, migration compacts and foreign aid arrangements.
His speech seemed to be playing to a domestic political audience, rather than to the rest of the world.
Donald Trump’s second-ever address to the UN was then met with laughter by the audience.
He said: “One year ago I stood before you for the first time in this grand hall. I addressed the threats facing our world, and I presented a vision to achieve a brighter future for all of humanity.”
“Today I stand before the United Nations General Assembly to share the extraordinary progress we’ve made.
“In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country,” Mr Trump continued, which was met with laughter in the room.” America’s… So true”.
Mr Trump smirked at the crowd’s reaction. “I didn’t expect that reaction but that’s okay,” he said.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
