Earlier this week, President Trump delivered a lengthy speech to the United Nations General Assembly. The president touched on numerous issues throughout his remarks, including immigration and nationalism. He also addressed the current conflict with Iran, promising to do anything necessary to defend the interests of the United States.

“Wise leaders always put the good of their own people and their country first,” President Trump said during the speech. “The future does not belong to globalists, the future belongs to patriots. The future belongs to sovereign and independent nations who protect their citizens, respect their neighbors and honor the differences that make each country special and unique.”

“If you want freedom, take pride in your country,” the president continued. “If you want democracy, hold on to your sovereignty. If you want peace, love your nation.”

During the speech, President Trump also targeted his opponents on immigration. “Today, I have a message for those open border activists who cloak themselves in the rhetoric of social justice: Your policies are not just, your policies are cruel and evil,” he said. “You are empowering criminal organizations that prey on innocent men, women and children. You put your own false sense of virtue before the lives and well-being of countless innocent people. When you undermine border security, you are undermining human rights and human dignity.”

Trump condemned Iran for allegedly attacking oil facilities in Saudi Arabia earlier this month. He went on to encourage other nations to impose further economic sanctions on the country. “All nations have a duty to act, no responsible government should subsidize Iran’s bloodlust,” President Trump said.

The president brought up international trade as well, specifically his ongoing feud with China. “For decades, the international trading system has been easily exploited by nations acting in very bad faith,” he said during the speech. “As jobs were outsourced, a small handful grew wealthy at the expense of the middle class.”
