Hillary Clinton calls Trump's United Nations speech 'very dark' and 'dangerous'

The president blasted "loser terrorists", the "corrupt" government in Venezuela, "murderous" regimes in Iran and referred to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man", the Daily Mail reported. That's why we can not simply look on as if we are spectators.

"I don't think as long as Donald Trump is president Iran is gong to be doing a lot of high-fiving", Sanders quipped.

SEOUL-South Korea approved a plan on Thursday to send $8 million (900 million yen) worth of aid to North Korea, as China warned the crisis on the Korean Peninsula was getting more serious by the day and the war of words between Pyongyang and Washington continued. The U.S. president said North Korea's "reckless pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles threatens the entire world with unthinkable loss of human life".

President Donald Trump sounded like a "barking dog" in his speech to the U.N. General Assembly this week, North Korea's foreign minister said Thursday.

The United Nations Security Council has approved multiple rounds of sanctions on North Korea, including on its exports. Trump also admonished nations that continue to trade with North Korea.

But German Chancellor Angela Merkel was in "clear disagreement" with Trump, saying in a radio interview that "any kind of military solution is completely deficient".


It is the ninth round of United Nations sanctions to hit North Korea since 2006. This all occurred while most of the other nations on this planet were cutting ties and creating new sanctions with Pyongyang.

Ms Mira Rapp-Hooper, senior research scholar at the Paul Tsai China Center at Yale Law School, said it was unclear whether Mr Trump's "apocalyptic" language was a strategy to scare Beijing to take a tougher line on its isolated neighbour, or a reflection of his belief in the effectiveness of military action.

Instead of insulting the despot who conducts missile tests that threaten the USA and its allies, Trump managed to make him sound cool.

Trump responded to Clinton on September 20, stating on Twitter, "After allowing North Korea to research and build Nukes while Secretary of State (Bill C also), Crooked Hillary now criticizes". South Korea and the United States are technically still at war with North Korea after the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended with a truce, not a peace treaty.

A senior US official said Trump is leaning toward not certifying that Iran is complying with the pact and letting Congress effectively decide whether to kill the agreement. We have tried to do this through dialogue, we have tried to do this through sanctions, we have tried every diplomatic measure that we possibly can. "We will act to prevent Iran from establishing permanent military bases in Syria for its air, sea and ground forces", he said, also vowing to prevent Iran from producing any weapons that could hit Israel.
