Trump says decision made on Iran deal

Trump’s trashing of Iran deal a problem for NK strategy
United Nations — President Donald Trump’s threat before the world to obliterate North Korea left no doubt about his determination to stop the communist country’s nuclear weapons buildup. His disparagement of the Iran nuclear deal in the same speech offered Pyongyang little hope of a negotiated solution. In his maiden address at the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, Trump spelled out in blunt and personal terms the reasons why Kim Jong Un and his government should be treated as pariahs   Read More ...

Washington — President Donald Trump used variations of the word “sovereign” 21 times during Tuesday’s 42-minute speech to the U.N.
