President Donald Trump’s speech at the United Nations didn’t have applause lines. He didn’t need or want any. He intended to make world leaders uncomfortable by publicly holding their feet to the fire.
Trump isn’t afraid to call it as he sees it. “The future does not belong to globalists. The future belongs to patriots,” he proudly proclaimed. “The future belongs to sovereign and independent nations.”
He asked the world for help in convincing Iran to play nice. “America is ready to embrace friendship to all who genuinely seek peace and respect,” Trump said. “The United States has never believed in permanent enemies. We want partners, not adversaries.”
Although Iran has a passion for war, there is a path to peace. “America knows that while anyone can make war, only the most courageous can choose peace,” Trump reminded world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is being pushed to meet with Trump. During a meeting with Rouhani and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, France’s Emmanuel Macron nudged the Iranian hardliner. “What is important is that if he (Rouhani) leaves the country without meeting with President Trump, this is a lost opportunity.”
Macron noted, “because he will not come back in a few months.” Of course, “President Trump will not go to Tehran so they have to meet now.” Rouhani isn’t listening. He childishly sent a diplomat to the U.N. chamber instead of appearing himself.
Rouhani wants it all and he wants it now, then he’ll talk. He insists that the sanctions are ended and Obama’s one sided deal put back in place then he might consider “small changes.” Trump isn’t only keeping the sanctions, he just added a bunch of new ones.
Trump offered a more reassuring tone at this third U.N. appearance. In the words of Theodore Roosevelt, he speaks softly but carries a big stick. Trump understands what it takes to encourage a world leader to do something different.
He doesn’t want war and he doesn’t want to rule the world. However, he will protect his nation just as other world leaders should protect theirs. That’s why he wants other mid-east countries to lead the efforts to make Iran behave.
“All nations have a duty to act. No responsible government should subsidize Iran’s bloodlust. As long as Iran’s menacing behavior continues, sanctions will not be lifted, they will be tightened,” Trump vowed.
Rouhani babbled incoherent nonsense in response. “This is a type of terrorism, this is inhumane. And if there is a cessation to this, then, of course, the atmosphere will change.”
Today, Rouhani continued, “America unfortunately is a supporter of terrorism in our region. And wherever America has gone, terrorism has expanded in their wake.” This comes from a regime caught with their hand in the cookie jar kidnapping oil tankers and blowing up refineries. He’ll keep doing it as long as he thinks he can get away with it.
The media world seemed more interested in covering globalist child activists than listening to what President Trump had to say.
President Trump also tried to reassure the world about the trade war with China. “How China chooses to handle the situation will say a great deal about its role in the world in the future. We are all counting on President Xi as a great leader.”
One of President Trump’s talking points is stolen trade secrets. “Hopefully we can reach an agreement that will be beneficial to both countries. But as I have made clear I will not accept a bad deal for the American people.”
