Trump: address to the UN General Assembly

Due to the pandemic, it was decided to broadcast the speech

President Donald Trump prefers to speak in front of a live audience, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was decided to broadcast his address to the UN General Assembly. The President’s speech at the UN comes against the backdrop of a pandemic, aggravation in relations with China, threats from North Korea and Iran and a tense struggle for re-election.

Trump told reporters Monday that his speech would contain a “powerful message” for China, but did not elaborate. Trump administration criticizes the Chinese Communist Party for its reaction to COVID-19, meddling in foreign elections, espionage in the United States and instilling influence around the world.

“In the early days of the virus’s spread, China banned domestic travel, while allowing it to fly out of China and infect the rest of the world,” Trump said. “The Chinese government and the World Health Organization, which is effectively controlled by China, falsely stated that there is no evidence of human-to-human transmission of the virus … Later they falsely stated that people without symptoms of disease do not spread the disease.”.

“UN should hold China accountable for its actions,” Trump said.

“75 years after the end of World War II and the founding of the UN, we are once again engaged in a great global struggle. We are fighting a fierce battle against an invisible enemy – the Chinese virus that has claimed countless lives in 188 countries, Trump said. “In the United States, we launched the most aggressive mobilization since World War II … We will distribute the vaccine, we will defeat the virus, we will end the pandemic and usher in a new era of unprecedented prosperity, cooperation and peace.”.

Speaking of China, he also touched on environmental issues: “Those who criticize America’s outstanding environmental performance while ignoring China’s rampant pollution are not interested in the environment. They only want to punish America. And I will not tolerate this “.

In his speech, the President highlighted the US-mediated agreements between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain: “We have achieved a landmark breakthrough by concluding two peace agreements in the Middle East after decades of lack of progress.”.

Trump also cites his services for brokering economic cooperation between Serbia and Kosovo, and for putting pressure on Allies to meet defense spending targets.

“We also know that American prosperity is the foundation of freedom and security around the world. In three short years, we have built the greatest economy in history, ”he said. “Over the past 4 years, we have spent $ 2.5 trillion on our military … We breathed new energy into NATO.”.

Trump: address to the UN General Assembly

Commenting on the decision to reinstate sanctions on Iran, despite the objections of other members of the Security Council, Trump said: “We have pulled out of the terrible nuclear deal with Iran and imposed serious sanctions on the leading state sponsor of terrorism.”.

Trump also highlighted efforts to end the war in Afghanistan, where US forces have been stationed since 2001. By November, it is planned to reduce the contingent to 4,500 troops. “The United States is also working to end the war in Afghanistan, and we are bringing our military home. America fulfills its peacekeeping mission “.

Another topic is the North Korean issue. Speaking at the UN in 2017, Trump said he was on a peace mission, but then said that if the US had to defend itself against Pyongyang, it would “have no choice but to completely destroy North Korea.” He called Kim Jong-un a “little rocketman” but has met him three times since then, although North Korea has taken no steps towards ditching its nuclear arsenal..

Throughout his presidency, Trump has repeatedly entered into polemics with international organizations, although, according to aides, he is not against all multilateral groups, but only against those that are ineffective. Following COVID-19 Spread, Trump Suspends Funding To UN World Health Organization, Says It Shows A Bias In Favor Of China.

Commenting on the work of the UN as a whole, Trump said: “For the UN to be an effective organization, it must focus on the real issues of the world. These are terrorism, oppression of women, forced labor, drug trafficking, human trafficking and sex trafficking, religious persecution and ethnic cleansing of religious minorities, “Trump said..

The president, known for his ‘America First’ slogan, also said: “For decades, the same tired voices have been proposing the same unfortunate solutions, pursuing global ambition at the expense of their own people. But only by taking care of your own citizens, you will find a real basis for cooperation “.
