President Donald Trump claimed his administration is one of the most accomplished in US history during a speech Tuesday at the United Nations General Assembly ― and the audience's reaction caught him off guard.
Trump compared USA relations with Iran to what he called improved ties with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who Trump had met in Singapore in June as part of a still-unfulfilled drive to get Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons.
Indeed, the absence of bombshells like last year's made Trump's speech this time nearly boring by comparison. "We will examine what is working, what is not working, and whether the countries who receive our dollars and our protection also have our interests at heart".
In his address a year ago to the UN, Trump insulted Kim as a "rocket man" bent on nuclear destruction. The deal with South Korea is more complicated because of North Korea, which is in the midst of negotiations with the USA and South Korea over the dismantling of its nuclear program. "The sanctions will stay in place until denuclearization occurs".

"So true", Mr. Trump said of America's progress.
Trump addressed the General Assembly after a news-filled day at the United Nations, where he vowed to continue sanctions against Iran to take down its nuclear programme and signed a revised trade deal with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
Mr Trump told the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, "The U.S. will not be taken advantage of any longer".
Bolton says the "murderous regime and its supporters will face significant consequences if they do not change their behavior" and there will be "hell to pay" if Iran harms USA citizens or its allies.
