Trump Addresses UN, Kim Jong Un Receives Annihilation Notice
In his first UN Address, President Trump vowed to seek international peace. However, he reiterated his America first policy.
Obviously, North Korea had a sneaking suspicion Trump would single them out. Shortly before his speech, North Korea’s U.N. ambassador left his seat. I’m not sure if he lacked the patience or the balls to listen. Either way, he exited the room before a single word was spoken. However, the junior North Korean diplomat remained.
The Kim Dynasty has plagued US Presidents dating back to the 1960s. However, Trump is the first President to have them running scared.
As Reuters reports:
Pyongyang’s two intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July, its testing of a Hwasong-12 missile over Japan in August and the September 3 test of what Pyongyang claimed was a hydrogen bomb have only accelerated the sense of urgency in Washington, Seoul, and Tokyo about the need for a strong collective response.
There are many options on the table for Trump. A preventive military strike would have a devastating effect on the region. (Brigadier General Rob Givens (retired) estimates that 20,000 people would perish in Seoul in the first day of a conflict.)

Furthermore, the U.N. Security Council voted Monday to step up sanctions against Pyongyang. However, economic restrictions may have a limited impact.
Pyongyang is a master of sanctions evasion, devising ever new and effective ways to keep their weapons programs funded.
No Match for Trump
The Kim dynasty has been accused of exporting and cooperating with countries like Iran and Syria on nuclear designs, missile technology, and possibly chemical weapons development, the Security Council ought to deliver a similar message to Pyongyang that a continuation of this behavior would be grounds for an even tougher and more comprehensive boycott of what it can import and export.
Trump already took a hard stance on unequal trade with foreign nations. It’s no stretch to predict Trump will soon impose huge tariffs against North Korea. Trump knows how to hit a man where it hurts- in the wallet.
Trump Speaks on North Korea
No one has shown more contempt for other nations and for the well-being of their own people than the depraved regime in North Korea. It is responsible for the starvation deaths of millions of North Koreans, and for the imprisonment, torture, killing, and oppression of countless more.
If this is not twisted enough, now North Korea’s reckless pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles threatens the entire world with unthinkable loss of human life.
It is an outrage that some nations would not only trade with such a regime, but would arm, supply, and financially support a country that imperils the world with nuclear conflict. No nation on earth has an interest in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles.
The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary. That’s what the United Nations is all about; that’s what the United Nations is for. Let’s see how they do.
It is time for North Korea to realize that the denuclearization is its only acceptable future. The United Nations Security Council recently held two unanimous 15-0 votes adopting hard-hitting resolutions against North Korea, and I want to thank China and Russia for joining the vote to impose sanctions, along with all of the other members of the Security Council. Thank you to all involved.
But we must do much more. It is time for all nations to work together to isolate the Kim regime until it ceases its hostile behavior.
Let’s just take a moment to translate Trump’s speech. North Korea is a bully. The US States is ready to kick their ass. We’re just hoping the UN is able to solve the problem so we don’t have to. However, Trump reinforced his America first policy. He will continue to work toward international peace, but the ultimate goal will always be the best interest of the United States.
