Make the UN Great? Trump's Big UN Speech Has the World Watching

Make the UN Great? Trump's Big UN Speech Has the World Watching Read Transcript

Minister of Israel.

Heather Sells brings us the story.

Many US allies are carefully watching

the president's debut speech today,

as are America's adversaries.

North Korea's top diplomat has a front row seat.

Mounting tensions with North Korea

are expected to dominate conversations in New York

during the six day UN meeting.

The Secretary General calls it the most dangerous crisis

that we face today.

And President Trump will take it up in his address.

HEATHER SELLS: The president is expected

to argue that the nation should rally together

when faced with common threats, like North Korea.

It's a marked change from the campaign trail, where

he suggested that the UN was not a friend to the US

and called it weak and incompetent.

The United Nations is not a friend of democracy.

It's not a friend to freedom.

It's not a friend even to the United States of America.

HEATHER SELLS: The president is also

expected to talk about Iran's nuclear agenda and the chaos

in Venezuela and Syria.

And in keeping with his campaign comments,

he will push for reform at the UN,

a point he previewed on Monday.

In recent years, the United Nations

has not reached its full potential

because of bureaucracy and mismanagement.

HEATHER SELLS: On one issue, there's

no question where the US stands at the UN,

taking a strong position in support of Israel.

The Prime Minister of Israel reinforced that when

he met with President Trump Monday.

I will say that under your leadership,

the alliance between America and Israel has never been stronger,

never been deeper.

HEATHER SELLS: Trump said they're

working very hard to bring peace between Israel

and the Palestinian Authority, and said

he hopes for significant progress by the year's end.

He's expected to meet later this week

with the Palestinian president, as well as many other world


Another key point for the president at the UN--

emphasizing his America first policy

actually working hand in hand with international cooperation.

The president believes all nations should

put their own interests first, and they can also work together

when faced with common concerns, like threats

from terrorists and rogue countries, like North Korea.
