The President of the United States, Donald Trump, is poised to add to his commitment towards the foreign strategy of ‘America First’ on the stage of the United Nations this week. The meeting of the general body of the United Nations will take place in New York this week, and Trump is all ready to stand by his principled foreign perspective that he has hosted ever since he became president.
In the sequel to his rather stormy and aggressive entrance to the United Nations last year, this time around Trump is looking to stress upon many things that are best for the USA. Trump would put U.S. interests first during his speech and while competing with allies for trade links. He is also expected to shine some light on the threat that Iran poses to the Middle East and all countries beyond.
Everyone remembers Trump’s speech from last year where he was his fiery self and labeled North Korean premier Kim Jong Un as the Rocket Man.
“It’s always been surprising to me that more things aren’t resolved,” said Trump in a video message, “because you have all of these countries getting together in one location but it doesn’t seem to get there. I think it will.”
Nikki Haley, who is the ambassador of the United States in the United Nations, talked to reporters just yesterday and mentioned that Trump’s focus would very much be on the United States. “He is looking forward to talking about foreign policy successes the United States has had over the past year and where we’re going to go from here,” said Nikki. “He wants to talk about protecting U.S. sovereignty,” while building relationships with nations that share those values.”
It is glad to finally see a President from the United States who is not willing to compromise on national interests in a foreign meeting.
