Trump Urges World to Isolate Iran in UN Address
AVA- Trump used a large portion of his address to the 73rd session of the General Assembly on Tuesday ranting against Iran, accusing it of  sponsoring terrorism and sowing "chaos, death and destruction," in the Middle East.
"We ask all nations to isolate Iran's regime as long as its aggression continues," he continued. "They do not respect their neighbors or borders or the sovereign rights of nations."
He condemned “the horrible 2015 nuclear deal” between Iran and six world powers and called on other countries to completely isolate the Islamic Republic.
The US president said more sanctions will follow after the resumption of oil sanctions on Iran on November 5.
UN audience laughs at Trump  
The US president opened his speech by touting his domestic policies, including tax cuts and his push to build a wall along the US-Mexico border, before addressing his foreign policy priorities.
Trump boasted that his administration had accomplished "more than almost any" other in US history. The remark drew laughter from the audience of world leaders.
The audience then again began chuckling when Trump said "so true." Trump paused, and then responded: "I didn't expect that reaction but that's OK."
