On Tuesday morning, President Donald Trump addressed the United Nations General Assembly in New York City. When the audience began to chuckle during his speech, Trump immediately delivered a “nasty surprise” that none of them were expecting.
President Donald Trump began his remarks to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday morning by celebrating the fact that his administration has accomplished so much in such little time. “In less than two years, my administration has accomplished almost more than any other administration in the history of our country,” said the president.
Indeed, it’s difficult to believe that we have come so far, especially after having been left in such a dire situation when Barack Obama left office. Unemployment has reached the lowest numbers on record, GDP is at a staggering 4.2 percent, and major companies are investing in our economy once again. Remember when Obama mocked Trump, saying he couldn’t just wave a magic wand and make jobs come back to America? Apparently, Trump has that magic wand.
Perhaps jealous that President Trump has been so successful, the audience at the United Nations on Tuesday began to chuckle as he lauded his administration’s accomplishments. “Didn’t expect that reaction but that’s OK,” the president said, brushing it off. However, they didn’t think it was so funny when Trump schooled them on the dangers of globalism and sung the praises of patriotism.
“We reject the ideology of globalism and embrace the doctrine of patriotism,” said Trump, adding that the United States “will not be taken advantage of any longer.”
President Trump excoriated the “ideology of globalism” and multinational authorities, underscoring the importance of national sovereignty and need for countries to pay for their own defense in his address before the United Nations General Assembly in New York Tuesday.

“I honor every nation to pursue its own customs, beliefs, and traditions. The United States will not tell you how to live or work or worship,” said Trump. “We only ask that you honor our sovereignty in return.”
The president also spent time lamenting the current state of affairs in Venezuela, which has been ruined by socialism. “All nations of the world should resist socialism and the misery that it brings to everyone,” Trump said.
He took aim at Iran, as well, saying, “Iran’s leaders sow chaos, death, and destruction. They do not respect their neighbors or borders, or the sovereign rights of nations. Instead, Iran’s leaders plunder the nation’s resources to enrich themselves and to spread mayhem across the Middle East and far behind. The Iranian people are rightly outraged that their leaders have embezzled billions of dollars from Iran’s treasury, seized valuable portions of the economy, and looted the people’s religious endowments, all to line their own pockets and send their proxies to wage war. Not good.”
And before all was said and done, the president called out Germany for the country’s dependence on Russian oil. “Germany will become totally dependent on Russian energy if it does not immediately change course,” he said. “Here in the Western Hemisphere, we are committed to maintaining our independence from the encroachment of expansionist foreign powers.”
The nations listening at the UN on Tuesday ought to be taking notes from Trump’s success. They may have laughed during his speech, but any one of them would love to get the kind of results our president has.
