Trump also said any solution for Syria must include a deal with Iran, adding that the USA will respond if chemical weapons are deployed by the Assad regime.

When President Barack Obama was in the White House, Trump was often critical of his approach to foreign affairs and routinely claimed that the world was laughing at the United States because of Obama's leadership.

He said 'we are standing up for America and for the American people, and we are also standing up for the world'. One of Trump's early boasts drew unexpected laughter from the audience, though he laughed it off and went on to press his case. Trump said in a posting on Twitter.

He again promoted the ideals of isolationism while also laying into nations like Iran, for its perceived aggression towards the United States, and China, for its continuing role in what Trump has labelled an out-and-out trade war.

Iran's leaders sow chaos, death and destruction, U.S. President Donald Trump said at the 73rd United Nations General Assembly session on Tuesday.

But the assembled delegates greeted Mr. Trump's victory lap with audible grumbling and some derisive laughter. "They do not respect their neighbors or borders or the sovereign rights of nations".

He further said that all the nations should isolate Iran's leadership and vowed to impose more sanction on Iran in November.

Throughout the rest of his address, Trump championed his "America first" ideals, saying, "We reject the ideology of globalism", USA Today reports.

"The United States is a stronger, safer and a richer country than when I assumed office less than two years ago", he said.

"No worse reaction he can think of than being laughed at", tweeted Maggie Haberman, the New York Times reporter who has covered Trump for decades.

Bolton, a votary of military action against Iran, said the U.S. would aggressively enforce sanctions against Tehran.

Trump said his "face-to-face" meetings with Kim were followed by "encouraging measures", including the absence of provocations in 2018.
