WORLD : US President Donald Trump spoke to the United Nations General Assembly for the first time as president on Tuesday morning. New York Post reports that the president, in a fiery speech, vowed to “destroy” North Korea if it continues to threaten the US and its allies with nuclear weapons. “The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime,” Trump said.  In his first formal speech to the 193-member organization, he rallied its members to stand together against “those who threaten us with chaos and turmoil and terror.”

Earlier on Monday morning, President Trump gave his first speech to the UN during a panel on reforming the organization, Vox reported. “The United Nations was founded on truly noble goals,” he said. “The United Nations has helped advance these goals in so many ways: feeding the hungry, providing disaster relief, and empowering women and girls in many societies all across the world.”
