President Donald Trump has said the United States will be forced to destroy North Korea, if it is prompted to defend itself or allies.
In his first United Nations speech, Trump lashed out at North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as “Rocket Man”.
According to him, major portions of the world are “going to hell.”
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,” Trump said on Tuesday.
“Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime.”
He stated that though the US was ready, such incident will hopefully not be necessary.
“That’s what the United Nations is all about. That’s what the United Nations is for,” he said. “Let’s see how they do. It is time for North Korea to realize that the denuclearization is its only acceptable future.”
He also said Iran was running a corrupt dictatorship under the guise of democracy.
“It is far past time for the nations of the world to confront another reckless regime, one that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing death to America, destruction to Israel and ruin for many leaders and nations in this room,” Trump said.
“The Iranian government masks a corrupt dictatorship behind the false guise of a democracy.”
He added, “Terrorists and extremists have gathered strength and spread to every region of the planet. Rogue regimes represented in this body not only support terrorists but threaten other nations and their own people with the most destructive weapons known to humanity,” Trump said.
“Authority and authoritarian powers seek to collapse the values, the systems and alliances that prevented conflict and tilted the world toward freedom since World War II.”
