Yesterday, President Trump stood before the United Nations General Assembly and delivered a hearty, patriot, and impactful speech. He did not mince words. The President’s convictions were clear; he made it known that America will always prioritize our interests and the interests of our allies. Naturally, his speech both pleased and irked many people, as noted by USA Today.
Excerpts and Explanations
“Rocket Man [Kim Jong Un] is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. 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.”
The above excerpt was arguably one of the most controversial segments of President Trump’s address. Critics slammed him as an authoritarian dictator with no qualms about ending millions of lives. The President’s critics need to understand a few things. First and foremost, America comes first. Our nation comes first, our interests come first, and our people come first. Also, as the leader of the free world, it is in President Trump’s job description to take actions in the best interest of this nation.
