Trump Slams Iran’s ‘Bloody Agenda’ In Return To US Patriotism


Donald Trump, the President of the United States of America, intensified his criticism of Iran in a speech that he delived during to the United Nations General Assembly that was held this afternoon. He accused its leadership of running a “corrupt dictatorship” that has a “bloody agenda.”

He informed the body that the Iranian leadership is sowing “chaos, death and destruction. ” He added that “they do not respect their neighbours or borders or the sovereign right of nations.”

The news comes as the relations between the two nations have been fraught since May, when Trump decided to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran. He also re-imposed sanctions on Iran last August.

As he made his way to deliver his speech, Trump nformed the reporters that he would not be holding a meeting with any of the officials of Iran unless Tehran decides to “change its tune.”

He added: “Iran has acted very badly. We look forward to having a great relationship with Iran, but it won’t happen now.”

Laster, Hassan Rouhani, the President of Iran, hit back at the US leader, informing the General Assembly that “no state and nation can be brought to the negotiation table by force and if so what follows is the accumulation of the grapes of wrath … to be reaped later by the oppressors.”

Trump also made use of his address to inform his fellow world leaders that he had instructed Mike Pompeo, the US secretary of state, to review foreign aid contributions of the US. He said  that from now on it will only be giving aid to “our friends” who “respect us.”

He stated: “America is governed by Americans. We reject the ideology of globalism and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism.”

He also led a further attack on the International Criminal Court and the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). He received a laugh from the floor as he slammed OPEC of taking advantage of the US with the increasing oil prices and “I don’t like it.”

The speech signified an important change in tone from his address last year which concentrated on the nation’s deteriorating ties with North Korea. Instead, Trump said that the ongoing denuclearisation discussions were “doing very well.”
