Trump to 'slap' foes in first UN speech
Trump's speech on Tuesday, and a series of meetings he will hold next week with foreign leaders gathering here at the annual U.N. General Assembly, are freighted with expectations that the USA leader wants to pull away from the 2015 U.N. -backed nuclear deal with Iran. And he says he thinks foreign leaders expect to hear harsh words from President Trump. His administration has recently signaled that he is likely to say no, raising the specter of renewed US sanctions and the possibility that the deal would fall apart.
On the floor at the United Nations on the day of the landslide decision. "They've violated so many different elements and they've also violated the spirit of that deal".
Trump in 2005 claimed he could do the United Nations renovation project for $700 million, and claimed that anyone saying a building renovation is more expensive than building a new building "does not know the business".
You often have one 15-minute meeting after another.
"I personally think he slaps the right people, he hugs the right people, and he comes out with (the) US being very strong, in the end", she told reporters at a White House press briefing. "And it's my opinion that all parties should do everything possible for this agreement to be preserved".
In addition to Trump and Haley, Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, the president's adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner and his National Economic Council director, Gary Cohn, are all expected to attend events in NY next week.
During the U.N. General Assembly session, Trump will also have separate talks with the leaders of France, Israel, Qatar, Britain, the Palestinian Authority and Turkey, McMaster said.
The US leader will host a lunch with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korea's Moon Jae-in on Thursday on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, Trump's National Security Adviser HR McMaster told a White House briefing. Aung San Suu Kyi, the de facto head of Myanmar, also will not attend amid a spate of government-backed ethnic violence in that country that has drawn global condemnation.
BENNETT: But unlike past presidents, Trump is promoting his America-first agenda.
Coming from the United States, this goal of "sovereignty" is as notable for what it doesn't say as for what it says.
The Trump Administration, per policy, does not acknowledge that Trump is playing even a hole of golf, much less an 18-hole round.
"This is not the kind of environment he likes, but this is the kind of environment the USA president has to plunge into once a year", Alterman said.
"He slaps the right people, he hugs the right people and he comes out very strong in the end", US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said on Friday as she previewed Trump's speech for the Tuesday assembly. Her willingness to work in the United Nations system was likely to affect Trump's tone at the gathering, said one European diplomat, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Once again Kim Jong-un, with his latest threatening launch of a long-range missile over Japan yesterday, has demonstrated both North Korea's rapidly accelerating technical capabilities, and Pyongyang's aptitude for strategic and psychological intimidation.
The Trump administration intends to change that.
Trump has taken a dim view of worldwide groups before. "So whether some believe it's big or small, I think what the President is saying is this is just the beginning of what we can do", Haley said, highlighting the fact that the new sanctions were cleared by a 15-0 record, with China and Russian Federation being on board with the stiff measure. Implying that there is already a course correction at the bidding of Washington, she commented: "The UN has shifted over the past several months".
McMaster said there is a military option against provocative acts by Pyongyang, but that "it's not what we would prefer to do". "A peaceful world depends on the contributions of all nations".
