POTUS Just Threatened NoKo In Front Of the Entire UN

The Background 

Just in case you were hoping for a good night’s sleep tonight, DT is here to take that away from you. POTUS gave his first speech in front of the United Nations General Assembly (speaking of sleep, some members used it as an opportunity to catch some Zs) and boy was it a doozy. Not only did he threaten to “totally destroy” North Korea (we’re sure Kim Jong Un loved that), but he took swipes at Russia and China for continuing to do business with the rogue nation. He also criticized the Iran Nuclear Deal, calling it “an embarrassment to the United States.” National Post

What Else You Need to Know

While Trump’s speech was clearly a highlight (or lowlight, depending on who you’re talking to) of the two-week-long meeting, it’s certainly not the only thing going on. There are tons of meetings (we’re talking hundreds or thousands) that go on over the course of the event, and many of them will focus on topics that have become key issues in 2017. Here are just a few of the topics that are sure to be on everyone’s agenda: Trump (obviously) and what “America First” means for the UN and its members, what to do about North Korea along with other international crises, climate change and world health issues, including antibiotic-resistant superbugs and tuberculosis (you know, the things nightmares are made of.)
