Trump touts his own achievements, and the United Nations laughs

Chelsea Beck  NPR

And Secretary of State Mike Pompeo addressed what he called the "regime's malign behavior at home and overseas", and released an accompanying report on illicit financial activities, human rights abuses and terrorism, among other "destructive activities".

US President Donald Trump wants Iran to be isolated by nations around the world due to what he deems to be aggressive behaviour. "He'll call on every country to join our pressure campaign in order to thwart Iran's global torrent of destructive activity".

Alireza Miryousefi, Spokesman for Iran's United Nations mission, told newsmen that Iran has not requested a meeting with Trump.

"We can not allow a regime that chants "Death to America" and that threatens Israel with annihilation, to possess the means to deliver a nuclear warhead to any city on Earth", he said.

Paul Pogba: Manchester United must 'attack, attack, attack' more at Old Trafford
Mourinho then went on to slate his players for how the game turned out saying, "I was expecting more from my attacking players". Pogba believes there is an attitude problem against the league's less fashionable sides.

At the time, Trump seemed surprised by the reaction, but he later said it "was meant to get some laughter".

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.

Mr Trump also boasted that his administration had accomplished "more than nearly any" other in United States history.

He had said it is an "outrage" that some nations would not only trade with a regime like North Korea, but would arm, supply and financially support a country that imperils the world with nuclear conflict.

Bills' Twitter shows team traveling to Wisconsin for game vs. Vikings
Twice in the first quarter against Buffalo, Minnesota got caught looking as a Bills player was left uncovered for a big gain. The fans booed early and often in the Vikings' second-worst defeat in the three-year history of the stadium.

Trump withdrew from the nuclear deal in May to the dismay of European allies, Russian Federation and China which had invested years in negotiations to achieve a milestone agreement on keeping Iran's nuclear ambitions in check. "The sanctions will stay in place until denuclearization occurs".

On Monday, Trump and Moon met on the sidelines of the General Assembly and agreed to move forward with engaging North Korea.

Responding to the laughs, Trump said, "Didn't expect that reaction, but that's OK".

The president - who threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea in his United Nations speech past year - is expected to employ a forceful tone toward the Islamic Republic, even if not as bellicose as he did toward Pyongyang.

Turkey condemns deadly terrorist attack in Iran
Four gunmen opened fire on the crowd on Saturday, killing civilians and 12 members of the country's elite Revolutionary Guards. The attack in Ahvaz came as the country marked the anniversary of the start of its 1980 to 1988 war with Saddam Hussein's Iraq.
