Trump at the UN: Key Quotes

On North Korea and Iran:

"The United States has great patience and strength, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will totally destroy North Korea," he said.

"'Rocket man' is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime," Trump added of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. "The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary."

"No one has shown more contempt for other nations and the well-being of their own people than the depraved regime of North Korea. It is an outrage that some nations would trade with such a regime."

...

Trump also took aim at Iran, calling the global deal regarding its nuclear weapons program "an embarrassment to the United States."

"The Iranian regime's support for terror is in stark contrast to the recent commitments of several of its neighbors to halt the funding of and fighting terrorism," he said. "Oppressive regimes can not endure forever. And the day will come when people will face a choice."

On Venezuela:

"[President Nicolas] Maduro has inflicted terrible pain and suffering on good people of his country," Trump said during a speech before the United Nations General Assembly. "The United States has taken important steps to hold the regime accountable. We are prepared to take further action if the government of Venezuela persists on its path to impose authoritarian rule on the Venezuelan people."

He added, "The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented but that socialism has been faithfully implemented," which garnered little applause from the world body.

"I ask every country represented here today to be prepared to do more to address this very real crisis," Trump said. "We call for the full restoration of democracy and political freedoms in Venezuela."

He also added:

"From the Soviet Union to Cuba, Venezuela -- wherever through socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish, devastation, and failure. Those who preach the tenets of these discredited ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who live under these cruel systems. America stands with every person living under a brutal regime."

Benjamin Netanyahu was effusive about the speech:

"In over 30 years in my experience with the UN, I never heard a bolder or more courageous speech," Netanyahu tweeted.

President Trump spoke the truth about the great dangers facing our world ... and issued a powerful call to confront them in order to ensure the future of humanity."

Via Twitchy, which is rounding up all the Blue Checkmark Mafia reactions, Democrat flunkies and the media (but I repeat myself) are rather less impressed.


Isn't this the same party calling for a full War on Russia every day?


For people who swear (fingers crossed!) that they're not socialists, they sure spend a lot of time defending thuggish socialists, don't they?


I guess Israel isn't our ally. Certainly that's the feeling one got from Obama and his failed novelist propagandist Rhodes.

And of course we had to hear from Grandstandin' Jim:


Video: The various thugs, communists, and socialists of the UN react rather poorly to Trump's speech.

It's like looking out over a sea of Jim Acostas.
