The 72nd United Nations General Assembly had world leaders deliver speeches on the theme ‘Focusing on People: Striving for Peace and Decent Life for All on a Sustainable Planet’. While TwitterNG adjudged President Buhari’s speech to be lacking in nationalism and heavy on hypocrisy, Zimbawaweans found Trump’s speech to be so boring, they slept through it. Also, Americans couldn’t wrap their head around Trump campaigning for war instead of peace.
At first we thought:
America is going to love this Trump speech. I know this because journalists are hating it.

Sure, this Trump speech is belligerent and irresponsible. But I'm sure we'll be fine because Kim Jong Un is known for his level-headedness.

"I can't believe this imbecile is the President of the USA."

UN speech was a lot of Trump tweets strung together. Saber-rattling. But no clear doctrine. Threats of confrontation around the world.

Trump is using his speech before the UN – a body founded by the US to help BRING WORLD PEACE – to make a case for TWO NUCLEAR WARS.

Trump's UN speech is despicable trash. He's standing in front of an international diplomatic organization arguing nationalism and war.

Listening back to Trump's UN speech and I'm even more horrified than before.
