He singled out China for "abuse" in its trade practices.
These are the highlights of Donald Trump's speech. USA officials said Trump is not seeking a meeting with him but is not opposed to talking if Iran requests a session. Trump last week announced US$200 billion ($275 billion) worth of new tariffs on Chinese goods. "They do not respect their neighbors or borders or the sovereign rights of nations".
He says a regime that chants "death to America" and threatens Israel with destruction must not be allowed to have the means to deliver a nuclear warhead.
With midterm elections in the United States little more than a month away, Trump's address at times took on the feel of a campaign address as he heralded low unemployment. He received a stay of punishment at least until Thursday, when he is to meet with Trump at the White House.
"That is why America will always choose independence and cooperation over global governments, control and domination".
He said the United States would help create a regional strategic alliance between Gulf nations and Jordan and Egypt, an initiative that the United States sees as a bulwark against Iran.
Woods wins Tour Championship, ending five-year drought
Afterwards, the crowd chanted his name with "crazy scenes" (according to Rose) of celebration rarely seen at a golf event. Only when he was on the green, the last one to putt after Rory McIlroy tapped in for birdie, did it start to sink in.
But his 35-minute speech in the green-marbled UN hall, while relatively low-key, was also aimed squarely at Iran, which the United States accuses of harbouring nuclear ambitions and fomenting instability in the Middle East through its support for militant groups in Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.
Trump has pulled the US out of a nuclear agreement with Iran while signing an agreement in principle with North Korea to abandon its nuclear program. He crowed that in "less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than nearly any administration in the history of our country".
Delivering his address to the annual gathering of United Nations heads of state, Trump began in the hyperbolic style of a domestic campaign as he boasted of his record.
Trump responded by saying, "I didn't expect that reaction, but that's OK".
"The United States is a stronger, safer and richer country than it was when I assumed office less than two years ago", Trump declared.
The laughter in the first moments of the address evoked a campaign line Trump frequently deployed against his predecessor Barack Obama - who embraced worldwide engagement - suggesting that due to weak American leadership, "the world is laughing at us".
Buffalo Bills' Twitter account confuses Minnesota and Wisconsin in video
Seemed like an easy payday with the Buffalo Bills getting blown out 47-3 in Week 1, and a player retiring at half time in Week 2. Minnesota is a really hard place to play and Allen made it look easy on a 75-yard touchdown drive to start the game.
Outside of concerns about what Trump's unchecked attempts to direct a global war on drugs might look like, drug policy experts are anxious that Trump's decision to hold a speech and photo opportunity where only those who signed his call to action were invited - and his insistence that world leaders sign the document without any comments - is yet another example of Trump's exclusionary style of diplomacy.
"You are the only person who can solve this problem", Moon said to Trump, relaying Kim's words.
India is also seeking a waiver from USA sanctions to buy Iranian oil and might create its own alternative payment system if the request is not granted.
Iran is a major focus of the annual week of United Nations diplomacy, months after Trump irritated USA allies in Europe by withdrawing from a 2015 agreement under which Tehran has sharply curtailed its nuclear program in return for sanctions relief.
Trump praised Kim as "very open" and "terrific", despite the sluggish pace of progress toward denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula.
Trump ran a bit late for his once-a-year speech at the U.N. General Assembly, forcing organizers to change the order of speakers.
