ADDRESS THE ASSEMBLY.
YOU HAVE THE FLOOR, SIR.
>> MADAM PRESIDENT, MR.
SECRETARY GENERAL, WORLD
LEADERS, AMBASSADORS, AND
EXTINGUISHED DELEGATES.
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 EXTRA ORDINARY
PROGRESS WE'VE MADE.
IN LESS THAN TWO YEARS MY
ADMINISTRATION HAS ACCOMPLISHED
MORE THAN ALMOST ANY
ADMINISTRATION IN THE HISTORY OF
OUR COUNTRY.
AMERICA'S SO TRUE.
DIDN'T EXPECT THAT REACTION, BUT
THAT'S OKAY.
AMERICA'S ECONOMY IS BOOMING
LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
SINCE MY ELECTION, WE'VE ADDED
$10 MILLION IN WEALTH.
THE STOCK MARKET IS AT AN
ALL-TIME HIGH IN HISTORY AND
JOBLESS CLAIMS ARE AT A 50-YEAR
LOW.
AFRICAN-AMERICAN,
HISPANIC-AMERICAN, AND OTHERS
HAVE ACHIEVED THEIR LOWEST
LEVELS RECORDED.
WE'VE ADDED FOUR MILLION NEW
JOBS, INCLUDING HALF A MILLION
MANUFACTURING JOBS.
WE HAVE PASSED THE BIGGEST TAX
CUTS AND REFORMS IN AMERICAN
HISTORY.
WE'VE STARTED THE CONSTRUCTION
OF A MAJOR BORDER WALL AND WE
HAVE GREAT STRENGTHENED BORDER
SECURITY.
WE HAVE SECURED RECORD FUNDING
FOR OUR MILITARY.
$700 BILLION THIS YEAR, AND
$716 BILLION NEXT YEAR.
OUR MILITARY WILL SOON BE MORE
POWERFUL THAN IT HAS EVER BEEN
BEFORE.
IN OTHER WORDS, THE UNITED
STATES IS STRONGER, SAFER, AND A
RICHER COUNTRY THAN IT WAS WHEN
I ASSUMED OFFICE LESS THAN TWO
YEARS ALTHOUGH.
WE ARE STANDING UP FOR AMERICA,
AND FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND
WE ARE ALSO STANDING UP FOR THE
WORLD.
THIS IS GREAT NEWS FOR OUR
CITIZENS.
AND FOR PEACE-LOVING PEOPLE
EVERYWHERE.
WE BELIEVE WHEN NATIONS RESPECT
THE RIGHTS OF THEIR NEIGHBORS
AND DEFEND THE INTEREST OF THEIR
PEOPLE, THEY CAN BETTER WORK
TOGETHER TO SECURE THE BLESSINGS
SAFETY, PROSPERITY AND PEACE.
EACH OF US HERE TODAY IS THE
ADVERSARY OF A RICH CULTURE, AND
PEOPLE BOUND TOGETHER BY TIES OF
MEMORY, TRADITION, AND THE
VALUES THAT MAKE OUR HOMELANDS
LIKE NOWHERE ELSE ON EARTH.
THAT IS WHY AMERICA WILL ALWAYS
CHOOSE INDEPENDENCE OVER GLOBAL
GOVERNANCE.
I HONOR EVERY NATION TO PURSUE
ITS OWN CUSTOMS, BELIEFS AND
TRADITIONS.
THE UNITED STATES WILL NOT TELL
YOU HOW TO LIVE OR WORK OR
WORSHIP.
WE ONLY ASK THAT YOU HONOR OUR
SOVEREIGNTY IN RETURN, FROM
WARSAW, TO BRUSSELS, TO TOKYO,
TO SINGAPORE, IT HAS BEEN MY
HIGHEST HONOR TO REPRESENT THE
UNITED STATES ABROAD.
I HAVE FORGED CLOSE
RELATIONSHIPS AND FRIENDSHIPS
AND STRONG PARTNERSHIPS WITH THE
LEADERS OF MANY NATIONS IN THIS
ROOM AND OUR APPROACH HAS ALWAYS
YIELDED INCREDIBLE CHANGE.
WE SUPPORT MANY COUNTRIES TODAY
AND HAVE ENGAGED IN W NORTH
KOREA TO REPLACE THE INSPECTOR
OF CONTICKET WITH A BOLD AND NEW
PUSH FOR PEACE.
IN JUNE I TRAVELED TO SINGAPORE
TO MEET FACE-TO-FACE WITH NORTH
KOREA'S LEADER, KIM JONG-UN.
WE HAD HIGHLY PRODUCTIVE
CONVERSATIONS AND MEETINGS.
AND WE AGREED THAT IT WAS IN
BOTH COUNTRIES' INTEREST TO
PURSUE THE DENUCLEARIZATION OF
THE KOREAN PENINSULA.
SINCE THAT MEETING WE'VE ALREADY
SEEN A NUMBER OF ENCOURAGING
MEASURES THAT FEW COULD HAVE
IMAGINED ONLY A SHORT TIME AGO.
THE MISSILES AND BEING ROETS ARE
NO LONGER FLYING IN EVERY
DIRECTION.
NUCLEAR TESTING HAS STOPPED,
SOME MILITARY FACILITIES ARE
ALREADY BEING DISMANTLED.
OUR HOSTAGES HAVE BEEN RELEASED
AND AS PROMISED, THE REMAINS OF
OUR FALLEN REROWS ARE BEING
RETURNED HOME, TO LAY AT REST IN
AMERICAN SOIL.
I WOULD LIKE TO THANK CHAIRMAN
KIM FOR HIS COURAGE AND THE
STEPS HE'S TAKEN.
THOUGH MUCH WORK NEEDS TO BE
DONE.
THE SANCTIONS WILL STAY IN PLACE
UNTIL THE DENUCLEARIZATION
OCCURS.
I WANT TO HELP THOSE WHO HAVE
REACHED US REACH THIS MOMENT, A
MOMENT THAT IS FAR GREATER THAN
PEOPLE WOULD UNDERSTAND.
FAR GREATER.
BUT FOR ALSO THEIR SUPPORT AND
THE CRITICAL SUPPORT THAT WE
WILL ALL NEED GOING FORWARD.
SPECIAL THANKS TO PRESIDENT MOON
OF SOUTH KOREA, PRIME MINISTER
ABE OF JAPAN, AND PRESIDENT XI
OF CHINA.
IN THE MIDDLE EAST OUR NEW
APPROACH IS YIELDING GREAT
STRIDES AND VERY HISTORIC
CHANGE.
FOLLOW BE MY TRIP TO SAUDI
ARABIA LAST YEAR, THE GULF
COUNTRIES OPENED A NEW CENTER TO
TARGET TERRORISTS FINANCING.
SAY THAT ARE ENFORCING NEW
SANCTIONS WORKING WITH US TO
IDENTIFY AND TRACK TERRORIST
NETWORKS AND TAKING MORE
RESPONSIBILITY FOR FIGHTING
TERRORISM AND EXTREMISM IN THEIR
OWN REGION.
THE UAE, SAUDI ARABIA, AND QATAR
HAVE PLEDGED BILLIONS OF DOLLARS
TO AID THE PEOPLE OF SYRIA AND
YEMEN.
AND THEY ARE PURSUING MULTIPLE
AVENUES TO ENDING YEMEN'S
HORRIBLE, HORRIFIC CIVIL WAR.
ULTIMATELY, IT IS UP TO THE
NATIONS OF THE REGION TO DECIDE
WHAT KIND OF FUTURE THEY WANT
FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR
CHILDREN.
FOR THAT REASON THE UNITED
STATES IS WORKING WITH THE GULF
CORPORATION COUNCIL, JORDAN AND
EGYPT TO ESTABLISH A REGIONAL
STRATEGIC ALLIANCE SO MIDDLE
EASTERN NATIONS CAN ADVANCE
STABILITY AND SECURITY ACROSS
THEIR HOME REJION.
THANK YOU TO THE UNITED STATES
MILITARY AND OUR PARTNERSHIP
WITH MANY OF YOUR NATIONS, I AM
PLEASED TO REPORT THAT THE BLOOD
THIRSTY KILLERS KNOWN AS ISIS
HAVE BEEN DRIVEN OUT FROM THE
TERRITORY THEY ONCE HELD IN IRAQ
AND SYRIA.
WE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK WITH
FRIENDS AND ALLIES TO DENY
RADICAL ISLAMIC TERARISTS,
FUNDING, TERRITORY OR SUPPORT OR
ANY MEANS OF INFILTRATING OUR
BORDERS.
THE ONGOING TRAGEDY IN SYRIA IS
HEARTBREAKING.
OUR SHARED GOALS MUST BE THE
DEESCALATION OF MILITARY
CONFLICT, ALONG WITH A POLITICAL
SOLUTION THAT HONORS THE WILL OF
THE SYRIAN PEOPLE.
IN THIS VAIN, WE URGE THE UNITED
NATIONS LED PEACE PROCESS BE
REINVIGORATED BUT REV ASSURED
THE UNITED STATES WILL
RESPOND -- REST ASSURED THE
UNITED STATES WILL RESPOND IF
CHEMICAL WEAPONS ARE DEPLOYED BY
THE BASHAR AL-ASSAD REGIME.
I COMMAND OTHER COUNTRIES FOR
HOSTING REFUGEES FROM THIS VERY
BRUTAL CIVIL WAR.
AS WE SEE IN JORDAN, THE MOST
COMPASSIONATE POLICY IS TO PLACE
REFUGEES AS CLOSE TO THEIR HOMES
AS POSSIBLE, TO EASE THEIR
EVENTUAL RETURN TO BE PART OF
THE REBUILDING PROCESS.
THIS APPROACH ALSO STRETCHES
FINITE RESOURCES TO HELP FAR
MORE PEOPLE INCREASING THE
IMPACT OF EVERY DOLLAR SPENT.
EVERY SOLUTION TO THE
HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN SYRIA
MUST INCLUDE A STRATEGY TO
ADDRESS THE BRUTAL REGIME THAT
IS FUELED AND FINANCED IT.
THE CORRUPT DICTATORSHIP IN
IRAN.
IRAN'S LEADERS SAW CHAOS, DEATH,
AND DESTRUCTION.
THEY DO NOT RESPECT THEIR
NEIGHBORS OR BORDERS OR THE
SOVEREIGN RIGHTS OF NATIONS.
INSTEAD, IRAN'S LEADERS
PLUNDERED THE NATION'S RESOURES
TO ENRICH THEMSELVES AND TO
SPREAD MAYHEM ACROSS THE MIDDLE
EAST AND FAR BEYOND.
THE IRANIAN PEOPLE ARE RIGHTLY
OUTRAGED THEIR LEADERS EMBEZZLED
BILLIONS FROM IRAN'S TREASURE,
SEIZED VALUE PORTIONS OF THE
INCOME AND LOOTED THE PEOPLE'S
RELIGIOUS ENDOWMENTES ALL TO
WAGE WAR ON THEIR PROXIES.
NOT GOOD.
IRAN'S NEIGHBORS HAVE PAID A
HEAVY TOLL FOR THE REGION'S
AGENDA OF AGGRESSION AND
EXPANSION.
THAT IS WHY SO MANY COUNTRIES IN
THE MIDDLE EAST STRONGLY
SUPPORTED MY DECISION TO
WITHDRAW UNITED STATES FROM THE
HORRIBLE 2015 IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL
AND REIMPOSE NUCLEAR SANCTIONS.
THE IRAN DEAL WAS A WIN FALL FOR
IRAN'S LEADERS.
IN THE YEARS SINCE THE DEAL WAS
REACHED, IRAN'S MILITARY BUDGET
GREW NEARLY 40%.
THE DICTATOR FUNDS USED TO BUILD
MISSILES, INCREASE INTERNAL
REPRESSION, FINANCE TERRORISM
AND FUND HAVOC AND SLAUGHTER IN
SYRIA AND YEMEN.
THE UNITED STATES HAS LAUNCHED A
CAMPAIGN OF ECONOMIC OPPRESSION
TO REMY THE FUNDS NEEDS TO
ADVANCE ITS BLOODY AGENDA.
LAST MONTH WE BEGAN REIMPOSING
HARD-HITTING NUCLEAR SANCTIONS
THAT HAVE BEEN LIFTED UNDER THE
IRAN DEAL.
ADDITIONAL SANCTIONS WILL RESUME
NOVEMBER 5th AND MORE WILL
FOLLOW AND WE ARE WORKING WITH
COUNTRIES THAT IMPORT IRANIAN
CRUDE OIL TO CUT THEIR PURCHASES
SUBSTANTIALLY.
WE CANNOT ALLOW THE WORLD'S
LEADING SPONSOR OF TERRORISM TO
POSSESS THE PLANET'S MOST
DANGEROUS WEAPONS.
WE CANNOT ALLOW A REGIME THE
CHANCED UP TO AMERICA AND THAT
THREATENED ISRAEL WITH
ANNIHILATION, TO POSSESS THE
MEANS TO DELIVER A NUCLEAR
WARHEAD TO ANY CITY ON EARTH,
JUST CAN'T DO IT.
WE ASK ALL NATIONS TO ISOLATE
IRAN'S REGIME AS LONGER AS ITS
AGGRESSION CONTINUES AND WE ASK
ALL NATIONS TO SUPPORT IRAN'S
PEOPLE AS THEY STRUGGLE TO
RECLAIM, THEIR RELIGIOUS AND
RIGHTEOUS DESTINY.
.
YEAR, WE ALSO TOOK ANOTHER
SIGNIFICANT STEP FORWARD IN THE
MIDDLE EAST IN RECOGNITION OF
EVERY SOVEREIGN STATE TO
DETERMINE ITS OWN CAPITAL, I
MOVED THE U.S. EMBASSY IN ISRAEL
TO JERUSALEM.
THE UNITED STATES HAS COMMITTED
TO A FUTURE OF PEACE AND
CIVILITY IN THE REGION,
INCLUDING PEACE BETWEEN THE
ISRAELIS AND THE PALESTINIANS.
THAT AIM IS ADVANCED NOT HARMED
BY ACKNOWLEDGING THE OBVIOUS
FACTS.
AMERICA'S POLICY OF PRINCIPLE TO
REALISM MUST MEAN WE CANNOT BE
HELD HOSTAGE TO IDEOLOGIES, AND
DOG MAS, PROVEN OVER THE YEARS
TIME AND TIME AGAIN.
THIS IS TRUE NOT ONLY IN MATTERS
OF PEACE, BUT IN MATTERS OF
PROSPERITY.
WE BELIEVE THAT TRADE MUST BE
FAIR AND RECIPROCAL.
THE UNITED STATES WILL NOT BE
TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF ANY LONGER.
FOR DECADES, THE UNITED STATES
OPENED ITS ECONOMY.
THE LARGEST BY FAR ON EARTH WITH
FEW CONDITIONS.
WE ALLOWED FOREIGN GOODS FROM
ALL OVER THE WORLD TO FLOW
FREELY ACROSS OUR BORDERS, YET
OTHER COUNTRIES DID NOT GRANT US
FAIR AND RECIPROCAL ACCESS TO
THEIR MARKETS IN RETURN.
EVEN WORSE, SOME COUNTRIES
ABUSED THEIR OPENNESS TO DUMP
THEIR PRODUCTS, TARGET OUR
INDUSTRIES, AND MANIPULATE THEIR
CURRENCIES TO GAIN UNFAIR
ADVANTAGE OVER OUR COUNTRY.
AS A RESULT, OUR TRADE DEFICIT
BALLOONED TO NEARLY $800 BILLION
A YEAR.
FOR THIS REASON WE ARE
SYSTEMATICALLY RENEGIATIONING
BROKEN AND BAD TRADE DEALS.
LAST MONTH WE ANNOUNCED A
GROUNDBREAKING U.S.-MEXICO TRADE
AGREEMENT AND JUST YET I STOOD
WITH PRESIDENT MOON TO ANNOUNCE
THE SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE
BRAND-NEW U.S.-KOREA TRADE DEAL.
AND THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING.
MANY NATIONS IN THIS HALL WILL
AGREE THAT THE WORLD TRADING
SYSTEM IS IN DIRE NEED OF
CHANGE.
FOR EXAMPLE, COUNTRIES WERE
ADMITTED TO THE WORLD TRADE
ORGANIZATION THEY VIOLATE EVERY
SINGLE PRINCIPAL ON WHICH THE
ORGANIZATION IS BASED.
WHILE THE UNITED STATES AND MANY
OTHER NATIONS PLAY BY THE RULES
THESE COUNTRIES USE
GOVERNMENT-RUN INDUSTRIAL
PLANNING AND STATE-OWNED
ENTERPRISES TO RIG THE SYSTEM IN
THEIR FAVOR.
THEY ENGAGE IN RELENTLESS
PRODUCT DUMPING, FORCED
TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER, AND THE
THEFT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.
THE UNITED STATES LOST OVER 3
MILLION MANUFACTURING JOBS,
NEARLY A QUARTER OF ALL STEEL
JOBS, AND 60,000 FACTORIES AFTER
CHINA JOINED THE WTO.
AND WE HAVE RACKED UP
$13 TRILLION IN TRADE DEFICITS
OVER THE LAST TWO DECADES.
BUT THOSE DAYS ARE OVER.
WE WILL NO LONGER TOLERATE SUCH
ABUSE.
WE WILL NOT ALLOW OUR WORKERS TO
BE VICTIMIZED, OUR COMPANIES TO
BE CHEATED, AND OUR WEALTH TO BE
PLUNDERED AND TRANSFERRED.
AMERICA WILL NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR
PROTECTING ITS CITIZENS.
THE UNITED STATES HAS JUST
ANNOUNCED TARIFFS ON ANOTHER
$200 BILLION IN CHINESE-MADE
GOODS FOR A TOTAL SO FAR OF
$250 BILLION.
I HAVE GREAT RESPECT AND
AFFECTION FOR MY FRIEND
PRESIDENT XI, BUT OUR TRADE
IMBALANCE, I HAVE MADE CLEAR, IS
JUST NOT ACCEPTABLE.
CHINA'S MARKED DISTORTIONS AND
THE WAY THEY DEAL CANNOT BE
TOLERATED.
AS MY ADMINISTRATION HAS
DEMONSTRATED, AMERICA WILL
ALWAYS ACT IN OUR NATIONAL
INTERESTS.
I SPOKE BEFORE THIS BODY LAST
YEAR AND WARNED THAT THE U.N.
HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL HAD BECOME
A GRAVE EMBARRASSMENT TO THIS
CONSTITUTION, SHIELDING
EGREGIOUS HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSERS
WHILE BASHING AMERICA AND ITS
MANY FRIENDS.
OUR AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITE
WOULD NATIONS, NIKKI HALEY, LAID
OUT A CLEAR AGENDA FOR REFORM,
BUT DESPITE REPORTED AND
REPEATED WARNINGS, NO ACTION AT
ALL WAS TAKEN.
SO THE UNITED STATES TOOK THE
ONLY RESPONSIBLE COURSE AND
WITHDREW FROM THE HUMAN RIGHTS
COUNCIL AND WE WILL NOT RETURN
UNTIL REAL REFORM IS ENACTED.
FOR SIMILAR REASONS, THE UNITED
STATES WILL PROVIDE NO SUPPORT
IN RECOGNITION TO THE
INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT.
AS FAR AS AMERICA IS CONCERNED,
THE ICC HAS NEW JURISDICTION, NO
LEGITIMACY, AND NO AUTHORITY.
THE ICC CLAIMS UNIVERSAL
JURISDICTION OVER THE CITIZENS
OF EVERY COUNTRY VIOLATING
PRINCIPLES OF FAIRNESS, JUSTICE,
AND DUE PROCESS.
WE WILL NEVER SUBDUE AMERICA'S
SOVEREIGNTY TO A GLOBAL
BUREAUCRACY.
AMERICA IS GOVERNED BY
AMERICANS.
WE REJECTED IDEOLOGY OF
GLOBALISM AND EMBRACE THE
DOCTRINE OF PATRIOTISM AROUND
THE WORLD, RESPONSIBLE NATIONS
MUST DEFEND AGAINST THREATS TO
SOVEREIGNTY NOT JUST FROM
DOMINATION.
WE BELIEVE STRONGLY IN ENERGY
SECURITY FOR OURSELVES AND FOR
OUR ALLIES.
WE HAVE BECOME THE LARGEST
ENERGY PRODUCER ANYWHERE ON THE
FACE OF THE EARTH THE UNITED
STATES STANDS READY TO EXPORT
OUR ABUNDANT SUPPLY OF OIL,
CLEAN COAL AND NATURAL GAS.
OPEC AND OPEC NATIONS ARE AS
USUAL RIPPING OFF THE REST OF
THE WORLD AND I
.
>>> NOT GOOD.
WE WANT THEM TO STOP RAISING
PRICES, WE WANT THEM TO START
LOWERING PRICES AND MUST
CONTRIBUTE SUBSTANTIALLY TO
MILITARY PROTECTION FROM NOW
ON.
WE'RE NOT GOING TO PUT UP WITH
IT THESE HONORABLE PRICES
MUCH LONGER.
RELIANCE ON A SINGLE FOREIGN
SUPPLIER CAN LEAVE A NATION
VULNERABLE TO EXTORTION AND
INTIMIDATION.
THAT IS WHY WE CONGRATULATE
EUROPEAN STATES SUCH AS POLAND
FOR LEADING THE CONSTRUCTION OF
A PIPELINE SO THAT NATIONS ARE
NOT DEPENDENT ON RUSSIA TO MEET
THEIR ENERGY NEEDS.
IT HAS BEEN THE FORMAL POLICY
OF OUR COUNTRY SINCE PRESIDENT
MONROE THAT WE REJECT THE
INTERFERENCE OF FOREIGN NATIONS
IN THIS HEMISPHERE AND IN OUR
OWN AFFAIRS.
THE UNITED STATES HAS RECENTLY
STRENGTHEN IT HAD OR LAWS TO
BETTER SCREEN FOREIGN
INVESTMENTS, IN OUR COUNTRY
FOR NATIONAL SECURITY THREATS.
AND WE WELCOME COOPERATION
WITH COUNTRIES IN THIS REGION
AND AROUND THE WORLD THAT WISH
TO DO THE SAME.
YOU NEED TO DO IT FOR YOUR OWN
PROTECTION.
THE UNITED STATES IS ALSO
WORKING WITH PARTNERS IN LATIN
AMERICA TO CONFRONT THREATS TO
-- FROM UNCONTROLLED MIGRATION,
TOLERANCE FOR HUMAN STRUGGLING,
AND HUMAN SMUGGLING AND
TRAFFICKING IS NOT HUMANE.
IT'S A HONORABLE THING THAT'S
GOING ON AT LEVELS THAT NOBODY
IS EVER SEEN BEFORE.
IT'S VERY, VERY CRUEL.
ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION FUNDS
CRIMINAL NETWORKS, RUTHLESS
GANG AND THE FLOW OF DEADLY
DRUGS.
ILLEGALIMMIGRATION EXPLOITS AS
A RULE OTHER VALUABLE
POPULATIONS, HURTS HARD WORKING
CITIZENS AND HAS PRODUCED A
VICIOUS CYCLE OF CRIME,
VIOLENCE AND POINT OF POVERTY.
ONLY BY UPHOLDING NATIONAL
BORDERS, DESTROYING CRIMINAL
GANGS CAN WE BREAK THIS CYCLE
AND ESTABLISH A REAL FOUNDATION
FOR PROSPERITY.
WE RECOGNIZE THE RIGHT OF
EVERY NATION IN THIS ROOM TO
SET ITS OWN IMMIGRATION POLICY
IN ACCORDANCE WITH ITS NATIONAL
INTERESTS.
JUST AS WEASK OTHER COUNTRIES
TO RESPECT OUR OWN RIGHT TO DO
THE SAME WHICH WE ARE DOING.
THAT IS ONEREASON THE UNITED
STATES WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN
THE NEW GLOBAL COMPACT ON
MIGRATION.
MY GRADUATION SHOULD NOT BE
GOVERNED BY AN INTERNATIONAL
BODY UNACCOUNTABLE TO OUR OWN
CITIZENS.
ULTIMATELY THE ONLY LONG-TERM
SOLUTION TO THE MIGRATION
CRISIS IS TO HELP PEOPLE BUILD
MORE HOPEFUL FUTURES IN THEIR
HOME COUNTRIES.
MAKE THEIR COUNTRIES GREAT
AGAIN.
CURRENTLY WE ARE WITNESSING A
HUMAN TRAGEDY AS AN EXAMPLE,
IN VENEZUELA, MORE THAN 2
MILLION PEOPLE HAVE FLED THE
ANGUISH INFLICTED BY THE
SOCIALIST REGIME AND ITS CUBAN
SPONSORS.
NOT LONG AGO CONVENIENCE WALL
LAW WAS ONE OF THE RICHEST
COUNTRIES ON EARTH.
TODAYSOCIAL LIMIT HAS BANK
ERUPTED THE OIL RICH NATION AND
DRIVEN ITS PEOPLE INTO ABJECT
POVERTY.
VIRTUALLY EVERYWHERESOCIAL
LIMIT OR COMMUNISM HAS BEEN
TRIED.
SOCIAL LIMITSTHIRST FOR POWER
LEADS TO EXPANSION AND
OPPRESSION.
ALL NATIONS OF THE WORLD SHOULD
RESIST SOCIAL I'M AND THE
MISERY THAT IT BRINGS TO
EVERYONE.
IN THATSPIRIT, WE ASK THE
NATIONS GATHERED HERE TO JOIN
US IN CALLING FOR THE
RESTORATION OF DEMOCRACY IN
VENEZUELA.
TODAY WE'RE ANNOUNCING
ADDITIONAL SANCTIONS AGAINST
THE REPRESS SIEVE REGIME.
TARGETING THE INNER CIRCLE AND
CLOSE ADVISERS.
WE'RE GRATEFUL FOR ALL OF THE
WORK THE UNITED NATIONS DOES
AROUND THE WORLD TO HELP PEOPLE
BUILD BETTER LIVES FOR
THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES.
THE UNITED STATES IS THE
WORLD'S LARGEST GIVER IN THE
WORLD BY FAR, OF FOREIGN AID.
BUT FEW GIVE ANYTHING TO US ,
THAT IS WHY WE'RE TAKING A HARD
LOOK AT U.S. FOREIGN
ASSISTANCE.
THAT WILL BE HEADED UP BY THE
SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO.
WE WILL EXAMINE WHAT IS
WORKING, WHAT IS NOT WORKING,
AND WHETHER THE COUNTRIES WHO
RECEIVE OUR DOLLARS AND OUR
PROTECTION ALSO HAVE OUR
INTERESTS AT HEART.
MOVING FORWARD, WE'RE ONLY
GOING TO GIVE FOREIGN AID TO
THOSE WHO RESPECT US AND
FRANKLY ARE OUR FRIENDS.
AND WE EXPECT OTHER COUNTRIES
TO PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE FOR
THE COST OF THEIR DEFENSE.
THE UNITED STATES IS COMMITTED
TO MAKING THE UNITED NATIONS
MORE EFFECTIVE AND ACCOUNTABLE.
I HAVE SAID MANY TIMES THAT
THE UNITE NATIONS HAS ULIMITED
POTENTIAL AS PART OF OUR
REFORM EFFORT I HAVE TOLD OUR
NEGOTIATORS THAT THE UNITED
STATES WILL NOT PAY MORE THAN
25% OF THE UN PEACEKEEPING
BUDGET.
THIS WILLENCOURAGE OTHER
COUNTRIES TO STEP UP, GET
INVOLVED AND ALSO SHARE IN THIS
VERY LARGE BURDEN.
WE ARE WORKING TO SHIFT MORE OF
OUR FUNDING FROM ASSESSED
CONTRIBUTIONS TO VOLUNTARILY SO
THAT WE CAN TARGET AMERICAN
RESOURCES TO THE PROGRAMS WITH
THE BEST RECORD OF SUCCESS.
ONLY WHEN EACH OF US DOES OUR
PART, AND CONTRIBUTES OUR
SHARE, CAN WE REALIZE THE UN'S
HIGHEST ASPIRATIONS.
WE MUST PURSUE PEACE WITHOUT
FEAR, HOPE WITHOUT DESPAIR AND
SECURITY WITHOUT APOLOGY.
LOOKING AROUND THIS HALL WHERE
SO MUCH HISTORY HAS TRANSPIRED
WE THINK OF THE MANY BEFORE US
WHO HAVE COME HERE TO ADDRESS
THE CHALLENGES OF THEIR NATIONS
AND OF THEIR TIMES.
AND OUR THOUGHTS TURN TO THE
SAME QUESTION THAT RAN THROUGH
ALL THEIR SPEECHES AND
RESOLUTIONS THROUGH EVERY
WORD, AND EVERY HOPE.
IT IS THE QUESTIONOF WHAT KIND
OF WORLD WILL WE LEAVE FOR OUR
CHILDREN?
ANDWHAT KIND OF NATIONS THEY
WILL INHERIT ? THE DREAMSTHAT
FILL THIS HAUL TODAY ARE AS
DIVERSE AS THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE
STOOD AT THIS PODIUM AND AS
VARIED AS THE COUNTRIES
REPRESENTED RIGHT HERE IN THIS
BODY ARE.
IT REALLY ISSOMETHING.
IT REALLY IS GREAT, GREAT
HISTORY.
THERE IS INDIA, A FREE SOCIETY
OVER A BILLION PEOPLE,
SUCCESSFULLY LIFTING COUNTLESS
MILLIONS OUT OF POVERTY AND
INTO THE MIDDLE CLASS.
THERE ISSAUDI ARABIA WHERE THE
KING AND CROWN PRINCE ARE
PURSUING REFORMS, ISRAEL
PROUDLY CELEBRATING ITS 70TH
ANNIVERSARY AS A THRIVING
DEMOCRACY.
INPOLAND PEOPLE ARE STANDING UP
FOR THEIR INDEPENDENCE, THEIR
SECURITY AND SOFT SEVERE TEE.
MANY COUNTRIES ARE PURSUING
THEIR OWN UNIQUE VISIONS
BUILDING THEIR OWN HOPEFUL
FUTURES AND CHASING THEIR OWN
WONDERFUL DREAMS OF DESTINY,
LEGACY, AND OF A HOME.
THE WHOLE WORLD IS RICHER.
HUMANITY IS BETTER.
BECAUSE OF THIS BEAUTIFUL
CONSTELLATION OF NATIONS EACH
VERY SPECIAL, EACH VERY
UNIQUE, AND EACH SHINING
BRIGHTLY IN ITS PART OF THE
WORLD.
AND EACH ONE WE SEE AWESOME
PROMISE OF A PEOPLE BOUND
TOGETHER BY A SHARED PAST AND
WORKING TOWARD A COMMON FUTURE.
AS FOR AMERICANS WE KNOW WHAT
KIND OF FUTURE WE WANT FOR
OURSELVES.
WE KNOW WHAT KIND OF A NATION
AMERICA MUST ALWAYS BE.
IN AMERICA WE BELIEVE IN THE
MAJORITY OF FREEDOM AND THE
DIGNITY OF THE INDIVIDUAL.
WEBELIEVE IN SELF-GOVERNMENT
AND THE RULE OF LAW.
AND WE PRIZE THE CULTURE THAT
SUSTAINS OUR LIBERTY, A CULTURE
BUILT ON STRONG FAMILIES, DEEP
FAITH, AND FIERCE
INDEPENDENCE.
WE CELEBRATE OURHEROES,
TREASURE OUR TRADITIONS, AND
ABOVE ALL, WE LOVE OUR COUNTRY.
INSIDE EVERYONE IN THIS GREAT
CHAMBER TODAY AND EVERYONE
LISTENING ALL AROUND THE GLOBE
THERE IS THE HEART OF A
PATRIOT THAT FEELS THE SAME
POWERFUL LOVE FOR YOUR NATION ,
THE SAME INTENSE LOYALTY TO
YOUR HOME LAND.
THE PASSION THAT BURNS IN THE
HEARTS OF PATRIOTS AND THE
SOULS OF NATIONS HAS INSPIRED
REFORM AND REVOLUTION SACRIFICE
AND SELFLESSNESS, SCIENTIFIC
BREAKTHROUGHS AND MAGNIFICENT
WORKS OF ART.
OUR TASK IS NOT TO ERASE IT,
BUT TO EMBRACE IT.
TO BUILD WITH IT, TO DRAW ON
ITS ANCIENT WISDOM AND FIND
WITHIN IT THE WILL TO MAKE OUR
NATIONS GREATER, REGIONS SAFER
AND THE WORLD BETTER.
TO UNLEASH THIS INCREDIBLE
POTENTIAL IN OUR PEOPLE WE MUST
DEFEND THE FOUNDATION THAT MAKE
IT ALL POSSIBLE, SOVEREIGN AND
INDEPENDENT NATIONS ARE THE
ONLY VEHICLE WHERE FREEDOM HAS
EVER SURVIVED.
DEMOCRACY HAS EVERENDURED OR
PEACE HAS EVER PROSPERED.
AND SO WE MUST PROTECT OUR
SOVEREIGNTY AND OUR CHERISHED
INDEPENDENCE ABOVE ALL.
WHEN WE DO, WE WILL FIND NEW
AVENUES FOR COOPERATION,
UNFOLDING BEFORE US.
WE WILL FIND NEWPASSION FOR
PEACE-MAKING RISING WITHIN US.
WE WILL FIND NEWPURPOSE, NEW
RESOLVE AND NEW SPIRIT
FLOURISHING ALL AROUND US.
AND MAKING THIS A MORE
BEAUTIFUL WORLD IN WHICH TO
LIVE.
SO TOGETHER LET US CHOOSE A
FUTURE OF PATRIOTISM
PROSPERITY AND PRIDE, LET US
CHOOSE PEACE AND FREEDOM OVER
DOMINATION AND DEFEAT.
AND LETUS COME HERE TO THIS
PLACE TO STAND FOR OUR PEOPLE
AND THEIR NATIONS.
FOREVER STRONG, FOREVER
SOVEREIGN, FOREVER JUST AND
FOREVER THANKFUL FOR THE GRACE
AND THE GOODNESS AND THE GLORY
OF GOD.
THANK YOU, GOD BLESS YOU, AND
GOD BLESS THE NATIONS OF THE
WORLD.
THANK YOU VERYMUCH.
THANK YOU.
.
>> ON BEHALF OF THE GENERAL
ASSEMBLY I WISH TO THANK THE
PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
OF AMERICA FOR STATEMENT JUST
MADE.
MAY I REQUESTREPRESENTATIVES TO
REMAIN SEATED WHILE WE --.
>> ALL RIGHT WE'RE GOING TO
PULL AWAY FROM THE UNITED
NATIONS.
THE PRESIDENT ADDRESSING THE
GENERAL ASSEMBLY FOR A LITTLE
LESS THAN AN HOUR OR SO.
>> UM-HUM.
>> WELCOME.
>> THANK YOU.
>> ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE
WERE SORT OF TALKING ABOUT AS
WE WERE LISTENING IS, YOU KNOW,
A LOT OF WHAT WE HEARD FROM HIM
WE EXPECTED TO HEAR.
BUT DID ANYTHING JUMP OUT AT
YOU AS NOVEL, DIFFERENT, NEW
AT ALL?
>> IN TERMS OF WHAT HE CITED
FOR PROGRESS FOR THE UNITED
STATES, YOU SAW AT THE TOP WHEN
HE SPOKE ABOUT THE U.S. HAVING
UM, ACCOMPLISHED MORE THAN ANY
OTHER ADMINISTRATION IN THIS
YEAR AND THEN THERE WAS
RESOUNDING LAUGHTER.
>> YES.
>> I DIDN'T EXPECT THAT, BUT
OKAY.
>> IT'S TRUE.
>> EXACTLY.
THEN HE TRIED TOMOVE ON AND
TALK ABOUT WHAT PROGRESS THE
ADMINISTRATION HAS ACCOMPLISHED
IN THE PAST YEAR.
>> UM-HUM.
>> AND NORTH KOREA WAS ON THE
TOP OF THE LIST.
HE SPOKE ABOUTKIM JONG-uN AND
THE CURRENTLY AND THE STEPS
THAT HE HAS TAKEN.
HE SPOKE ABOUTENCOURAGING
MEASURES IN TERMS OF U.S.,
NORTH KOREA TALKS AND THAT'S
ALL TRUE TO A DEGREE, RIGHT?
>> RIGHT.
>> WE'VE SEEN THE 2 MEET IN
SINGAPORE.
WE HAVEN'T SEEN MUCHFOLLOW-UP
AND TRUMP STAYED PRETTY FAR
AWAY FROM THAT.
THESE WERE SOME VERY, UM, NICE
WORDS ABOUT KIM JONG-uN, BUT
THIS WASN'T A WHOLE LOT OF
OTHER SUBSTANCE OTHER THAN
ROLLING OUT THESE NEW
SANCTIONS.
.
>> YOU KNOW, IT STRUCK ME THAT
THE SPEECH HAD A LOT OF STEVEN
MILLER'S FINGER PRINTS ON IT
THERE WAS A LOT OF PATRIOTISM
AND THE PRESIDENT SAYING GLOBALI
GLOBALISM IS A GOOD THING.
[INAUDIBLE]
TO POLICIES THAT HAD LONG BEEN
SORT OF DONE AWAY WITH IN THIS
COUNTRY.
>> GOVERNING FROM THAT
STANDPOINT AND STANDING WHERE
HE'S STANDING AT THE
HEADQUARTERS OF THE UNITED
NATIONS, RIGHT?
>> RIGHT.
>> THIS IS AN INTERNATIONAL
BODY CREATED AFTER WORLD WAR II
TO AVOID INTERNATIONAL
CONFLICT, TO COME TOGETHER,
LOOK AT ISSUES TOGETHER TO
BRING ALL THESE COUNTRIES
TOWARDS A MORE PEACEFUL WORLD.
TRUMP ISBASICALLY SAYING YOU DO
WHAT YOU WANT TO DO, WE'LL DO
WHAT WE WANT TO DO, LET'S
PROTECT SOVEREIGNTY AND PUSH ON
THAT AS THE WAY FORWARD, RATHER
THAN COLLECTIVE ACTION
ALTOGETHER.
>> THAT'S SUCH A GOOD POINT.
AGAIN, IT'S NOT -- I MEAN, YOU
KNOW, PATRIOTISM IS A WONDERFUL
THING AND ALL OF US HERE AT
THIS TABLE AND THIS COUNTRY ARE
PATRIOTS AND LOVE OUR COUNTRY
AS DO THE PEOPLE IN THAT BODY.
YOUR POINT IS A GOOD ONE WHICH
WAS IN THE WAKE OF WORLD WAR II
WHERE IT WAS VERY CLEAR THAT
THE NATIONS HAD NOT BEEN ABLE
TO COME TO AGREEMENTS WHERE
THEY CAN CREATE PEACE THAT'S
WHY THIS BODY WAS CREATED.
>> UM-HUM.
>> IT FAILED AFTER WORLD WAR I.
SO THE PRESIDENT SORT OF
SUGGESTING WE'RE GOING TO DO
WHAT YOU WANT TO DO, YOU DO
WHAT YOU WANT TO DO AND LET'S
SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
>> RIGHT, INDEPENDENCE OVER
GLOBAL CONTROL AND DOMINATION
THAT'S WHAT HE WAS SAYING.
>> RIGHT.
>> I WANT TO POINT OUT THAT
HE'S ALSO REFERENCING PAST U.S.
FOREIGN POLICY OBJECTIVES THAT
THIS ADMINISTRATION DOESN'T
ADHERE TO.
HE SAID THATTHEY'RE NOT GOING
TO BE HELD HOSTAGE TO THE OLD
DOINGMAS OF THE PAST AND HE'S
SHOWN A LIGHT ON THE MOVING OF
THE U.S. EMBASSY IN ISRAEL.
HE SPOKEABOUT THE TRADE
CONFLICT THAT HE'S GOTTEN THE
U.S. INTO.
BASICALLY TRYING TO ASSERT UM,
THE U.S. POSITION THIS
ADMINISTRATION'S POSITION ONTO
FOREIGN POLICY IN A WAY THAT WE
HAVEN'T SEEN IN THE PAST.
>> THAT'S REALLY INTERESTING.
STAND BY.
WE'RE JOINED FROM THE UNITED
NATIONS IN NEW YORK CITY.
SO, UM, IGUESS I'LL FIRST GET
YOUR OVERVIEW.
WE WERE SORT OFDISCUSSING THE
SPEECH AND KIND OF YOU KNOW,
REMARKING THERE WAS NOTHING
THAT JUMPED OUT AS REMARKABLE.
BASICALLY WHAT WEHAD EXPECTED.
WHAT'S YOUR TAKEON THE SPEECH
THAW HEARD FROM THE PRESIDENT?
>> I THINK THE 3 OF Y'ALL HIT
IT ON THE HEAD WHICH IS
EVERYTHING THAT HE HAD FLEW IN
THE FACE OF THE SPIRIT OF THE
UN HERE.
HE'SBEEN CRITICAL OF THE UN IN
THE PAST.
IN FACT, HE POSTED AVIDEO
MESSAGE SAYING HE WAS SURPRISED
THE UN COULD NOT ACCOMPLISH
MORE THAN IT HAS, THAT IT HAS
POTENTIAL.
SO THISIS EXACTLY WHAT WE
EXPECTED IN TERMS OF DELIVERING
YET ANOTHER AMERICA FIRST
MESSAGE, BUT I WILL SAY WE
WERE EXPECTING MORE OF A TALE
OF 2 NUCLEAR AMBITIONS FROM MR.
TRUMP.
HOWEVER, IT WAS AN ABRIDGED
VERSION, RIGHT, EVEN THOUGH HE
THANKED KIM JONG-uN, HE ALSO
ACKNOWLEDGED THERE WAS STILL A
LOT OF WORK LEFT TO DO IN TERMS
OF REACHING THAT GOAL TO DENZEL
AND AS EXPECTED HE TALKED ABOUT
IRAN OF COURSE THE CURRENT
SITUATIONS FOR BOTH HE BELIEVED
ARE DEPENDENT ON THEIR
WILLINGNESS TO COME TO THE
NEGOTIATING TABLE WITH THE U.S.
BUT THE SLAMMING IRAN WAS NO
SURPRISE, PAINTING THAT PICTURE
AS DIRE AS ONE THAT IS NOT
COOPERATIVE AND SORT OF, YOU
KNOW, CRITICIZING THE REGIME.
HE DIDN'T MENTION, HOWEVER, THE
FACT THAT OVERNIGHT ALL OF THE
OTHER COUNTRIES THAT ARE STILL
PART OF THAT AGREEMENT
RECOGNIZED THAT THE CURRENT
IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL IS WORKING.
OF COURSE, THEPRESIDENT SAID
THE SAME THING THAT EVEN THOUGH
THE PRESIDENT THOUGHT
REIMPOSING ECONOMIC SANCTIONS
WOULD BE A STRATEGY TO PUT
PRESSURE ON IRAN, IT'S NO . AND
SO THE BURDEN IS ON PRESIDENT
TRUMP TO EXPLAIN HIS STRATEGY
AND WHY HE BELIEVES PULLING OUT
OF THAT DEAL REMAINS THE BEST
WAY FORWARD AND HE DID NOT TALK
ABOUT THAT.
>>YEAH, I --
>> DURING THE SPEECH.
>> I THOUGHT THAT WAS VERY
INTERESTING THAT HE DIDN'T TALK
ABOUT THE OTHER COUNTRIES THAT
SIGNED ONTO THAT DEAL AT ALL
REALLY.
[INAUDIBLE]
SORT OF ATTACKING IRAN.
>>YEAH.
>> YEAH.
>> THE OTHER THING HE DIDN'T
MENTION IS HE DIDN'T TALK ABOUT
RUSSIA.
>> ABSOLUTELY.
YES.
>> YEAH.
>> RIGHT.
>> WHAT RUSSIA IS CURRENTLY
DOING IN MEDDLING IN ELECTIONS
WAS THAT SURPRISING.
>> I PUT IT IN ALL CAPS IN
INTO NOTES BECAUSE RUSSIA
QUESTION MARK, QUESTION MARK.
BECAUSE HEUSED A WARNING TO
SYRIA AS A SEGUE TO IRAN.
HE TALKED ABOUT YOU KNOW, THE
CONSEQUENCES THAT WOULD PLAY
OUT IF THERE WERE MORE CHEMICAL
WEAPONS ATTACKS ON THE CIVILIAN
THERE AND SAID, YOU KNOW, IT'S
NOT ONLY SYRIA THAT HAS TO BE
HELD ACCOUNTABLE HERE BUT ALSO
THOSE FORCES BEHIND SYRIA THAT
ARE FUNDING YOU KNOW WHAT'S
HAPPENING THERE AND ALLOWING IT
TO HAPPEN THEN WENT RIGHT INTO
IRAN'S PART, BUT YOU'RE RIGHT,
IN THAT MOMENT, I EXPECTED HIM
TO ALSO MENTION RUSSIA.
AND HE HAS TO BE FAIR IN THE
PAST EVEN RECENTLY WARNED
RUNNING BACK AND IRAN TO STOP
THEIR PART IN THE SYRIAN
CONFLICT OTHERWISE THEY WOULD
FACE CONSEQUENCES AS WELL.
BUTYOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT HE
DID NOT DO THAT.
SO HERE WE AREAGAIN ON ANOTHER
MASSIVE GLOBAL STAGE WHERE THE
PRESIDENT HAD THE OPPORTUNITY
TO POINT THE FINGER AT MOSCOW
AND HE DID NOT.
>> RIGHT --
>> [INAUDIBLE]
THAT'S EXACTLY --
>> RIGHT.
>> YEAH, HE SAID -- HE WARNED
GERMANY ON BECOMING DEPENDENT
ON RUSSIAN ENERGY.
BUT HE DIDN'TSPECIFICALLY
TARGET RUSSIA AT ALL.
>> NO, HE DIDN'T.
HE ALSOTALKED ABOUT IMMIGRATION
AND WE HAVE SOME SOUND OF WHAT
HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT THAT.
LET'S TAKE ALISTEN.
IT'S THERE, I SWEAR.
>> WE RECOGNIZE THE RIGHT OF
EVERY NATION IN THIS ROOM TO
SET ITS OWN IMMIGRATION POLICY
IN ACCORDANCE WITH ITS NATIONAL
INTEREST JUST AS WE ASK OTHER
COUNTRIES TO RESPECT OUR OWN
RIGHT TO DO THE SAME WHICH WE
ARE DOING.
THAT IS ONE REASON THE UNITED
STATES WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN
THE NEW GLOBAL COMPACT ON
MIGRATION.
MY GRADUATION SHOULD NOT BE
GOVERNED BY AN INTERNATIONAL
BODY, UNACCOUNTABLE TO OUR OWN
CITIZENS.
ULTIMATELY THE ONLY LONG-TERM
SOLUTION TO THE MIGRATION
CRISIS IS TO HELP PEOPLE BUILD
MORE HOPEFUL FUTURES IN THEIR
HOME COUNTRIES.
MAKE THEIR COUNTRIES GREAT
AGAIN.
.
>> THERE YOU GO.
GOT THAT LINEIN THERE.
UM, THIS IS SOMETHINGWE HEARD
FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE
RECENTLY WHEN HE TALKED ABOUT
ALL THAT AMERICA DOES FOR
MIGRANTS AND BASICALLY SAID
OVER THERE.
>> RIGHT.
>> WHERE THEY'RE AT.
AND THEPRESIDENT REITERATING
THIS.
IWAS ASKING ABOUT THE GLOBAL
COMPACT ON MIGRATION.
WHAT IS IT?
.
>> YEAH, THE COMPACT ON
MIGRATION IS ALL THESE
COUNTRIES COMING TOGETHER TO
TRY AND FIGURE OUT A WAY TO
MAKE MIGRATION BETTER, TO WORK
ON IT ALTOGETHER.
THE U.S. ISSTEPPING AWAY FROM
THAT.
IMEAN, WE SAW JUST LAST WEEK
THE STATE DEPARTMENT ROLL OUT A
30 30,000 REFUGEE CAP, THE
LOWEST IN HISTORY SINCE THE
PROGRAM WAS CREATED IN 1980.
SO WE DIDN'THEAR ANY COUNTRIES
COMING FORWARD AND SUPPORTING
THE U.S. FOR THAT DECISION.
THAT ISREALLY IMPORTANT.
YOU KNOW, WEEXPECT IT,
HUMANITARIAN ORGANIZATIONS TO
COME OUT AGAINST THE U.S. BUT
WE DIDN'T EXPECT SUCH A
CALMNESS, SUCH A LACK OF
COMMENTARY FROM FOREIGN NATIONS
WHO ARE THE ONES THAT ARE
ACTUALLY YOU KNOW, PUTTING UP
THEIR HOUSES , THEIR COUNTRIES
TO SUPPORT THESE REFUGEES
BECAUSE THE U.S. IS CLOSING THE
DOOR.
>> UM-HUM.
>> I WANT TO GET YOUR TAKE ON
WHAT THE PRESIDENT HAD TO SAY
ABOUT NORTH KOREA.
LET'SPLAY A LITTLE BIT OF THAT.
.
>> ROCKETS ARE NO LONGER FLYING
IN EVERY DIRECTION.
NUCLEAR TESTING HAS STOPPED,
SOME MILITARY FACILITIES ARE
ALREADY BEING DISMANTLED.
OUR HOSTAGES HAVE BEEN RELEASED
AND HAS PROMISED THE REMAINS OF
OUR FALLEN HEROES ARE BEING
RETURNED HOME.
TO LAY AT REST ONAMERICAN SOIL.
I WOULD LIKE TOTHANK CHAIRMAN
KIM FOR HIS COURAGE AND FOR THE
STEPS HE HAS TAKEN, THOUGH MUCH
WORK REMAINS TO BE DONE.
THE SANCTIONS WILL STAY IN
PLACE UNTIL DENUCLEARIZATION
OCCURS.
.
>> THAT'S AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE.
>> IT IS.
ALTHOUGH I WONDER,THE CIA
DIRECTOR HAS REMAINED
DISCREPANT CAL ABOUT THE MOVES
THAT NORTH KOREA IS MAKING
SEEMINGLY TO CONTRAST THE
PRESIDENT'S OPTIMISM.
>> RIGHT.
HERE'S WHY: ALL THOSE THINGS
THAT THE PRESIDENT JUST LISTED
WERE THINGS THAT WERE ALSO
TRUE ABOUT A MONTH AGO WHEN HE
CANCELLED SECRETARY POP PAY I
DON'T'S TRIP TO NORTH KOREA
CITING A LACK OF PROGRESS.
SO WHAT HAPPENEDBETWEEN THEN
AND NOW?
WELL, KIMJONG-uN SENT HIM A
LETTER REQUESTING A SECOND
MEETING.
HEALSO HAD A MILITARY PARADE
THAT DID NOT SHOWCASE THE
MISSILES AS HE DID IN THE PAST.
THAT'S REALLY IT.
BUT IN TERMSOF CONCRETE
DELIVERABLES OR ANY KIND OF
PLANS THAT SHOWS HE'S COMMITTED
TO TAKING STEPS FORWARD WE
DON'T HAVE THAT.
THAT'S WHY THE SKEPTICISM IS
THERE AND WHY THE PRESIDENT HAS
YET TO ANSWER WHY HE HAS THIS
RENEWED OPTIMISM ONE MONTH
LATER AFTER CANCELLING THAT
TRIP.
SOMETHING THE ADMINISTRATION
HAS NOT ANSWERED IS EVEN THOUGH
THEY SAY THAT YOU KNOW, A
SECOND SUMMIT IS ON THE BRINK
AND YOU KNOW, BELIEVE IT WILL
HAPPEN IN THE NOT TOO DISTANT
FUTURE THEY HAVEN'T ANSWERED
HOW IS THE STRATEGY GOING TO BE
DIFFERENT FROM THE FIRST
SUMMIT, AND WHAT ARE THEY GOING
TO HOPE TO LEAVE WITH IN TERMS
OF WHAT THEY'VE LEARNED AFTER
THE FIRST ONE?
BECAUSE HERE WE ARE AGAIN THEN
HAVING TO SAY AND ACKNOWLEDGE
THAT THEY STILL HAVE A LOT OF
WORK TO DO.
UM, AND SO, I THINK, THE
PRESIDENT WAS LISTENING, I
THINK KIM JONG-uN WAS LISTENING
AND KIM GOT AGAIN, WHAT HE
ALWAYS WANTED WHICH WAS
PRESIDENT TRUMP, THE PRESIDENT
OF THE UNITED STATES STANDING
HERE THANKING HIM IN THIS WAY
AND SHOWING OPTIMISM ALL WEEK .
MEANWHILE SAYING BY THEWAY, THE
SANCTIONS ARE GOING TO STAY IN
POLICE.
SO IF ANYTHINGHE COULD SAY IN
THIS TALE OF 2 NUCLEAR POWERS
THAT ACTUALLY UM, NORTH
KOREA'S NOT GETTING MUCH.
SO WHY WOULD IRANCOME TO THE
BARGAINING TABLE WHEN THE
PRESIDENT IS NOT MAKING ANY
KIND OF CONCESSIONS DO YOU
REMEMBER THIS NEGOTIATING
PROCESS.
AND SO EVEN THOUGH THEPRESIDENT
TOOK A MILD VICTORY LAP, IT
WASN'T AS MUCH AS I EXPECTED,
ESPECIALLY COMPARED TO THIS
TIME LAST YEAR WHEN HE COINED
THE PHRASE LITTLE ROCKET MAN
AND SAID HE WAS GOING TO
TOTALLY DESTROY NORTH KOREA.
>>YEAH, I WANT TO POINT OUT THE
NORTH KOREANS ARE PLAYING HARD
TO GET WITH THE U.S. THIS WEEK.
MIKE POMPEO HAS EXTENDED AN
INVITE TO MEET WITH THE FOREIGN
MINISTER AND THEY HAVEN'T HEARD
BACK YET.
>> THAT'S INTERESTING.
>> GOSH.
I MEAN, YOU KNOW, YOUEXPECT TO
PUT YOUR HAND OUT AS A GESTURE
AND THE NRTH KOREANS HAVEN'T
GOTTEN BACK TO THEM, THAT
DOESN'T LOOK SO GOOD FOR THE
UNITED STATES HERE.
IT'SSOMETHING THEY'RE KNOWN TO
DO.
THEY DON'T NECESSARILY FOLLOW
THROUGH ON ALL OF THEIR PLANS.
BUT I ALSO WANT TO POINT OUT
THAT TRUMP REFERENCED NORTH
KOREA DESTROYING SOME OF ITS
MISSILE TEST LAUNCH SITES.
HEWASN'T ABLE TO CITE ANY OF
THE NUCLEAR TEST SITES THEY ARE
DISMANTLING.
IN FACT NORTHKOREA SAID DURING
THEIR MEETING LAST WEEK
[INAUDIBLE]
U.S. TOOK [INAUDIBLE]
MEASURES.
>> RIGHT.
>> THAT'S WHY IT WAS
SIGNIFICANT THAT HE SAID THE
SANCTIONS ARE GOING TO STAY IN
PLACE.
>> EXACTLY.
>> WHATEVER MESSAGE YOU'RE
SENDING TO NORTH KOREA THAT'S
ALL THEY CARE ABOUT, THAT LAST
LINE THERE.
>> YES.
>> AND CRITICS ARE SAYING WHY
SIT DOWN AT THE TABLE WITH KIM
JONG-uN AGAIN WHEN YOU DON'T
KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO GET.
>> RIGHT.
>> THAT'S A GREAT POINT.
THEOTHER SORT OF POINT THAT I
WANT TO GET REACTION TO IS THE
PRESIDENT TALKING ABOUT
IMMIGRATION.
I'M NOT SURE IF WEHAVE SOME
SOUND FROM THAT.
DOWE HAVE SOUND OF THE
PRESIDENT TALKING ABOUT
IMMIGRATION?
>> I THINK IT MIGHT --
>> OKAY.
>> WHAT SPECIFICALLY WERE YOU
THINKING OF?
>> I WAS CURIOUS ABOUT WHAT HE
SAID WHERE HE SAID ILLEGAL
IMMIGRATION FUELS CRIME,
VIOLENCE AND POVERTY
REITERATING A THEME THAT THE
PRESIDENT HAS WHETHER AT ONE OF
HIS RALLIES OR REMARKS TO THE
PRESS.
.
>> WHAT STANDS OUT IS THAT HE
JUST LIKE WHEN THE CHAOS WAS
UNFOLDING AT OUR OWN BORDER
HERE HE DOES NOT MAKE THE
DISTINCTION, UM, FOR REFUGEES
FOR PEOPLE FLEEING THEIR HOME
COUNTRIES.
BECAUSE THEY FEEL LIKE THEY'VE
HAD NO CHOICE BECAUSE THEY FEEL
LIKE THEY'RE.
[INAUDIBLE]
WHO IS TRYING TO LEAVE THEIR
COUNTRY AND GO SOMEWHERE ELSE.
AND ITHINK THAT'S WHERE HE
MAKES A MISTAKE [INAUDIBLE]
AT THIS INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY
YOU KNOW, IN A IS A VERY
IMPORTANT DISTINCTION AND,
AGAIN, [INAUDIBLE]
HIS ARGUMENT THAT HE MAKES
MORE SO FOR HIS BASE I WOULD
SAY, UM, THAN ANY OTHER.
YOU KNOW, SHOWS THAT IN HIS
MIND HE ALWAYS KNOWS HIS
AUDIENCE AND NOT NECESSARILY
THE AUDIENCE SITTING RIGHT
BEFORE HIM.
>> ALL RIGHT.
AT THE UN THANK YOU AS ALWAYS
WE APPRECIATE IT.
WE'LLTALK TO YOU A LITTLE BIT
LATER.
YOU'RE STICKING AROUND.
SOLET'S TALK ABOUT CHINA.
LET'SPLAY WHAT THE PRESIDENT
HAD TO SAY ABOUT CHINA AND GET
YOUR REACTION.
.
>> GO TO SOUND ON CHINA IN THE
TRADE.
>> THE UNITED STATES HAS JUST
ANNOUNCED TARIFFS ON ANOTHER 2
$200 BILLION IN CHINESE MADE
GOODS FOR A TOTAL SO FAR OF
$250 BILLION.
I HAVE GREAT RESPECT AND
AFFECTION FOR MY FELONY, BUT
I'VE MADE CLEAR OUR TRADE
IMBASS IS YOU FELT JUST NOT
ACCEPTABLE.
CHINA'SMARKET DISTORTIONS AND
THEY WAY THEY DEAL CANNOT BE
TOLERATED.
>> THE PRESIDENT SORT OF
WALKING THE FINE LINE BETWEEN
CRITICIZING THE CHINESE BUT
ALSO TALKING ABOUT HOW HE'S GOT
GREAT RESPECT.
>> UM-HUM.
EARLIER IN THESPEECH HE PRAISED
CHINA FOR THEIR ASSISTANCE WITH
NORTH KOREA.
>> YEAH.
IT'S IMPORTANT TO ITHINK
HIGHLIGHT WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS
SAYING ABOUT CHINA BECAUSE ON
ONE HAND YOU DO HAVE TO WALK
THE FINE LINE, CHINA IS A
MASSIVE SOUP POWER AND THERE
ARE PROBLEMS WITH THE WAY CHINA
MANAGES ITS ECONOMY.
THEQUESTION, OF COURSE, IS SOME
CASES FOR EXAMPLE IT'S HURTING
AMERICAN FARMERS AND
MANUFACTURERS.
>> YEAH.
>> THAT'S THE LINE THAT HE'S
TRYING TO THREAD.
>> AND THE ADMINISTRATION HAS
TO SUBSIDIZE THESE DECISIONS
THEY'VE MADE ON TRADE TO BACK
UP THEIR ACTIONS BECAUSE
THEY'RE HURTING AMERICAN
FARMERS AND THESE FOREIGN
COUNTRIES AREN'T STUPID.
THEY'RE GOING TO COMEBACK AT
THE U.S. AND ARGET CITIES AND
TARGET STATES THAT ARE KNOWN
TO HAVE TRUMP SUPPORTERS.
WE'RE COMING UP ONTHE MID-TERMS
RIGHT NOW.
SOTHEY WANT TO GO BACK AT THE
U.S. AND HURT TRUMP WHERE IT
HURTS THE MOST.
IT'S ALSO A LITTLEBIT CONFUSING
BECAUSE WE HAVE SEEN AS YOU
SAID TRUMP SAY THAT CHINA HAS
BEEN HELPFUL ON NORTH KOREA,
BUT ACTUALLY THEY HAVEN'T BEEN
ALL THAT HELPFUL ON NORTH
KOREA.
THEY'RE THE ONESTHAT ARE STILL
FUELLING NORTH KOREA'S ECONOMY
AND THE ONES THAT HAVE BEEN
ALLOWING CERTAIN THINGS TO GO
ACROSS A BORDER CONTINUALLY.
>> RIGHT.
>> I WONDER -- LET'S TALK MORE
ABOUT THIS IDEA OF SOVEREIGNTY
AND FOCUSSING INWARD AND LESS
GO AGREEING AND COMING TO THE
TABLE WITH PARTNERS AND ALLIES
AROUND THE WORLD.
I WONDER THERE ARE ALOT OF
PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY THAT
LIKE THIS COURSE.
THEYTHINK THE U.S. HAS BEEN
TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF.
I GUESS MYQUESTION IS TAKING A
STEP BACK: THE IDEA THAT IN
SOME INSTANCES THE UNITED
STATES MAY NOT GET EVERYTHING
THAT IT WANTS BUT IT DOES GET
PEACE IN ALL PARTS OF THE
WORLD WHERE COUNTRIES KNOW
THAT IF THEY ATTEMPT AND -- IF
THEY ATTEMPT TO COMMIT GENERAL
SIDE ON THEIR OWN PEOPLE THAT
THE UNITED STATES WILL BE THERE
TO PREVENT THAT FROM HAPPENING.
BY THE PRESIDENT SAYING LOOK,
DO WHAT YOU'VE GOT TO DO WITHIN
YOUR OWN BORDERS, WE'RE GOING
TO DO WHAT WE WANT TO DO, COULD
BE DETRIMENTAL IN THE LONG-
TERM, NOT FOR US, PEOPLE IN
COUNTRIES WHERE GOVERNMENTS DO
NOT TAKE ANY HINTS OR ADVICE
FROM COUNTRIES LIKE THE UNITED
STATES AND SAY I'M NOT GOING TO
GET INVOLVED.
>> RIGHT.
AND A LOT OF TIMESFOREIGN
POLICY AND AID IS STRATEGIC.
THEY'RE THINKINGABOUT THE LONG
GAME.
AND SO WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP
SAID IN THIS SPEECH IS, YOU
KNOW, IF THE U.S. IS GOING TO
BE GIVING AID [INAUDIBLE]
RESPECT US, THAT'S A LITTLE BIT
OF A DIFFERENT TAKE ON WHAT
U.S. FOREIGN POLICY HAS
TRADITIONALLY FOLLOWED IN THE
PAST.
YOU KNOW,EGYPT IS NOT
NECESSARILY A COUNTRY THAT
ALWAYS RESPECTS THE UNITED
STATES THEY'RE ONE OF OUR
LARGEST RECIPIENTS OF FOREIGN
AID AND THERE'S A REASON FOR
THAT. %
>> YEAH.
>> BECAUSE THEY ARE A PILLAR OF
STABILITY IN AN AREA WHERE THE
U.S. WANTS TO SEE A STABLE
MIDDLE EAST.
>> UM-HUM.
>> SORRY --
>> GO AHEAD.
>> THE LAST THING I WANT TO SAY
IS THE QUESTION THEN BECOMES:
IF THE UNITED STATES IS SEEDING
AND SAYING WE'RE GOING TO FOCUS
WITHIN MORE OF OUR OWN NATIONAL
INTERESTS AND BORDERS, THEN
THAT LEAVES A VACUUM AND WHO IS
LEFT TO FILL THAT VACUUM SO TO
YOUR POINT ABOUT NOT WORRYING
ABOUT THE ELECTIONS, WORRYING
ABOUT THE BASE IN 10 OR 15
YEARS WHEN -- WHAT IT WAS
BECAUSE OF CHINA SEEING THAT
VACUUM AND SORT OF FILLING IT.
I SEEN THATIN AFRICA FOR
EXAMPLE.
>> I THINK IT'S ALREADY BEEN
HAPPENING.
WE'VE SEEN CHINAWITH ITS
ECONOMIC INFLUENCE ACROSS THE
GLOBE.
AND WE'RESEEING OTHER COUNTRIES
-- EXACTLY.
>>YEAH, YOU KNOW, WHAT I WANTED
TO PIVOT BACK TO IS THE IRAN
DEAL.
WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT MORE SOUND
I WANTED TO PLAY AND TALK TO
YOU ABOUT THE FACT THAT THE
PRESIDENT HAS SAID BEFORE HE'D
BE OPEN TO MEETING WITH THE
PRESIDENT.
>> UM-HUM.
>> LET'S JUST LISTEN TO WHAT HE
HAD TO SAY.
>> IRAN'S LEADERS --
[INAUDIBLE]
DEATH AND DESTRUCTION.
THEY DONOT RESPECT THEIR
NEIGHBORS OR BORDERS OR THE
SOVEREIGN RIGHTS OF NATIONS.
INSTEAD, IRAN'SEADERS
PLUNDER THE NATION'S RESOURCES
TO ENRICH THEMSELVES AND TO
SEPARATED MAYHEM ACROSS THE
MIDDLE EAST AND FAR BEYOND.
THAT IS WHY SO MANY COUNTRIES
IN THE MIDDLE EAST STRONGLY
SUPPORTED MY DECISION TO
WITHDRAW THE UNITED STATES
FROM THE HONORABLE 2015 IRAN
NUCLEAR DEAL.
AND REIMPOSE NUCLEAR SANCTIONS.
.
>> SO WHAT I THOUGHT WAS SORT
OF INTERESTING ABOUT THOSE
WORDS IS THAT IT WAS REALLY
PERM ATTACK ON THE LEADERSHIP.
I KNOW WE'VEBEEN HEARING THAT
FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE.
YOU KNOW,YOU'VE HEARD HIM OFTEN
SAY IF THE PEOPLE OF IRON DON'T
LIKE WHAT'S HAPPENING THEY
SHOULD PROBABLY ADDRESS IT WITH
THEIR LEADERSHIP.
I HEARD A REINFORCEAM OF THAT.
.
>> I MEAN, AND TRUTH BE TOLD WE
DON'T KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING
BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND BACK
CHANNELS.
LAST YEAR AT THE UNGENERAL
ASSEMBLY IT WAS THE U.S. THAT
WENT TO THE FRENCH AND ASK IF
HE'D SIT DOWN WITH PRESIDENT
TRUMP AND THE IRANIAN AS SAID
NO.
>> UM-HUM.
>> BECAUSE THEY'RE FLOATING
THAT OUT BECAUSE THEY REALLY DO
WANT A MEETING TO HAPPEN BUT
DON'T WANT TO BE EMBARRASSED ON
THE PUBLIC WORLD STAGE, RIGHT?
WHENWE LOOK AT IRAN WE'RE GOING
TO HAVE A LOT MORE TOMORROW
BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT IS
HOSTING THE U.N. SECURITY
COUNCIL MEETING AND THE U.S.
WANTS IRAN TO BE THE FOCUS OF
THAT.
SO TRUMP IS PROBABLY GOING TO
FACE SOME BLOW BACK FROM HIS
ALLIES HONOR NOT SO SUPPORTIVE
OF WHAT THE U.S. HAS DONE WITH
REGARD TO PULLING OUT OF THE
IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL.
>> ALWAYS GRADE TO HAVE YOUR
ANALYSIS AND YOUR REPORTING.
THANK YOU FOR SPENDING SOME
TIME WITH US.
WE APPRECIATE IT.
WE'RE GOING TO TAKE A QUICK
BREAK.
STICK AROUND WE'RE GOINGTO GET
BACK TO YOU JUST AFTER THIS
BREAK.
