Trump draws APPLAUSE at the UN for blasting Iran’s ‘murderous regime’ and warning that Tehran’s mullahs are still working on nuclear missiles, by David Martosko.

Donald Trump unleashed broadside after broadside against Iran on Tuesday at the United Nations, warning that the ‘rogue state’ is still racing toward the completion of a nuclear weapon that would destabilize the entire Middle East.

‘Major portions of the world are in conflict, and some in fact are going to hell,’ he said, in a speech to the General Assembly that included direct attacks on Iran, North Korea, Venezuela and Cuba. …

‘We cannot let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building dangerous missiles. And we cannot abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear program,’ Trump said, drawing applause from leaders of more than 180 nations in the room.

‘The Iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into. Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States and I don’t think you’ve heard the last of it, believe me,’ he said.

‘It’s time for the entire world to join us in demanding that Iran’s government end its pursuit of death and destruction.’ …

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised Trump. ‘In over 30 years in my experience with the UN, I never heard a bolder or more courageous speech … President Trump spoke the truth about the great dangers facing our world and issued a powerful call to confront them in order to ensure the future of humanity.’
