UN members laugh at Donald Trump

The Internet Can’t Get Enough Of Trump Getting Laughed At During His United Nations Speech World leaders literally laugh at Trump as he boasts about accomplishments at UN
| 26 September, 2018, 17:24

Trump often criticised former US President Barack Obama's approach to foreign affairs and claimed the world was "laughing" at the country under Obama's leadership.

Repeating his accusations, Trump further called Iran "the world leading sponsors of terrorism", saying that they can not allow a country that chants "Death to America" and tries to wipe out Israel from the world map to obtain nuclear arms.

President Donald Trump claimed that his administration "has accomplished more than nearly any administration in the history of our country", drawing laughter from an audience at the United Nations on Tuesday. "We only ask that you honor our sovereignty in return", he said.

The president responded: "I didn't expect that reaction, but that's OK". They bubbled into chuckles as Trump added a casual "so true".

In response, Trump reiterated the United States commitment to a "campaign of economic pressure" to deny Iran funds for its "regional behavior", and that more sanctions will follow after the resumption of oil sanctions on November 5.

"The United States is a stronger, safer, and richer country than it was when I assumed office less than two years ago", Trump declared.


Trump also said he expects countries with on-the-ground USA troops to pay their "fair share for the cost of their defense", a statement that appeared to be aimed at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, and allies like South Korea and Japan.

Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in met at the United Nations, where many world leaders are gathering this week for the General Assembly.

Last September, President Donald Trump used the opportunity of his annual address to the United Nations, to the shock and horror of many, to lob insults at North Korea's Kim Jong-un: "Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime..."

"In less than two years, my administration has achieved more than any administration in the history of our country", Trump boasted, little more than a month before USA congressional elections.

But the assembled delegates greeted Mr. Trump's victory lap with audible grumbling and some derisive laughter.

In May, Mr Trump withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal - officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action which reduced sanctions on Iran in exchange for curbing their nuclear program - because he said they had continued nuclear proliferation and considered it a bad deal.
