Trump speaking at UN in first General Assembly address

US President Donald Trump takes the podium at the United Nations headquarters in New York for his first address to the annual General Assembly.

He is expected to use his speech to urge the international community to put pressure on Iran and North Korea.

In brief remarks to a UN panel yesterday, Trump chastised the world body for its bloated bureaucracy and budget, saying, “We are not seeing the results in line with this investment.”

But even with that scolding, Trump pledged to the UN that the United States would be “partners in your work” to make the organization a more effective force for world peace.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is listening to the speech in the plenary. He will give his own address later tonight.
