Addressing the United Nations General Assembly, President Trump called out the “corrupt dictatorship of Iran” for lining their own pockets and sending proxies to wage war at the expense of the Iranian people.
He defended his decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal, noting that since the deal was signed Iran’s military budget has risen 40%. He also called for other countries to join the United States in sanctioning and applying economic pressure on the Islamic nation.
This wasn’t the President’s best delivery of a speech. He is best when speaking off the cuff rather than reading from a teleprompter. Nonetheless, the words he spoke were true and appropriate for the world stage of the United Nations.
The message itself was strong even if the delivery was lackluster.
