TRUMP Says US Economically Becoming Robust, Much Safer

US president Donald Trump has claimed that his country’s economy is booming after he assumed office. Addressing the United Nations General Assembly Session, he said “Today, I stand before the United Nations general assembly to share the extraordinary progress we have made. In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country. So true,” Trump said at the top of his speech. As some  delegates  burst into laughter and clapped  interrupting his speech ,  Trump said America’s economy is booming like never before and since his election, the US has added USD 10 trillion in wealth.“The stock market is at an all-time high in history … African-American, Hispanic-American, and Asian-American unemployment have all achieved their lowest levels ever recorded,” he said. Trump said his administration has added four million new jobs including half a million manufacturing jobs and has passed the biggest tax cuts and reforms in American history.“We have started the construction of a major border wall and we have greatly strengthened border security. We have secured record funding for our military, USD 700 billion this year and USD 716 billion next year. Our military will soon be more powerful than it has ever been before. “In other words, the United States is stronger, safer, and a richer country than it was when I assumed office two years ago. We are standing up for America and the American people, and we are also standing up for the world,” he said. Trump denounced clerical regime in Tehran for sowing ‘chaos, death and destruction’ as he defended his decision to ditch Iran nuclear deal. He called for Iran’s isolation while welcoming another former adversary, North Korea, in from the cold in an unabashedly boastful speech to the United Nations General Assembly which provoked laughter from fellow leaders. Hours before Iranian President Hassan Rouhani was due to speak from the same rostrum, Trump denounced the clerical regime in Tehran for sowing “chaos, death and destruction” as he defended his decision to ditch an internationally brokered nuclear deal four months ago. But after stunning the global body with his bellicose language on North Korea a year ago, including a threat to “totally destroy” Kim Jong Un’s state, Trump instead praised his one-time arch enemy for his “courage” as he hailed progress in fragile peace efforts with Pyongyang. Trump came to power vowing that the world’s most powerful country would follow an “America First” foreign policy creating fears about the US commitment to multilateral institutions such as the United Nations. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres in his  opening  speech said trust in the rule-based global order and among states was “at a breaking point” and international cooperation becoming more difficult, without mentioning Trump.”Today, world order is increasingly chaotic. Power relations are less clear,” Guterres told the 193-nation assembly. The United States is stronger, safer and a richer country than it was when I assumed office less than two years ago,” Mr. Trump told the General Assembly, in his second address as president. “We are standing up for America and the American people. We are also standing up for the world.”President Trump said  under his administration the United States had started building a wall along the border with Mexico, defeated the Islamic State and eased the crisis with North Korea through dialogue with the leader of the nuclear-armed state.“We have engaged with North Korea to replace the spectre of conflict with a bold and new push for peace,” Mr. Trump said, speaking about his Singapore summit meeting with Mr. Kim.
