"They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. he has been very threatening beyond a normal state".
In an indictment of the global body, Mr. Trump said the Iran nuclear deal provides a "cover for the potential construction of a nuclear program" in the region, an outcome that the US would not tolerate.
We will stop radical Islamic terrorism because we can not allow it to tear up our nation and, indeed, to tear up the entire world.
But it was Mr Trump's mention of the 1977 kidnapping of teenager Megami Yokata by North Korean agents that made headlines in Japan, where the event remains etched into the national consciousness.More news: A North Korean Defector Describes Life Under Kim Jong
"It is an outrage that some nations would not only trade with such a regime - but arm, supply and financially support a regime that imperils the world with nuclear conflict".
"After allowing North Korea to research and build Nukes while Secretary of State (Bill C also), Crooked Hillary now criticizes.", Trump wrote in the tweet, also mentioning Bill Clinton, the day after his first formal address to the UN General Assembly.
In a speech that also called out Iran and other "forces of destruction", the American president urged all nations to work together to isolate Pyongyang until it stops its "hostile" behavior.
Whether Trump is aware of such obligations is unclear; since taking the presidency eight months ago, he has shown little inclination to think beyond the "America first" policy that took him to the White House.
"Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States, and I don't think you've heard the last of it", Trump declared.More news: Opioids decrease life span by 2.5 months
Rouhani said the end of the nuclear deal would be more detrimental to the United States than to Iran.
"Yet, saying it in this setting, in front of world leaders, and calling the deal the worst and most one-sided transaction in United States history and an embarrassment to the U.S., I think that really makes it hard now for Trump not to de-certify the deal and pull out of it - and that's just what all the other players in the worldwide community don't want", he said.
"In America, we do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to watch", he said.
Under him, Mr Trump said, the United States was "calling for a great reawakening of nations, for the revival of their spirits, their pride, their people, and their patriotism".
Wrote one Twitter user: "Trump's ignorant hate speech belongs in medieval times-not the 21st Century UN -unworthy of a reply". Last year, the Iranian president was dour, complaining that the United States had not done enough to convince worldwide business and banks that it was safe to invest in Iran.More news: Bernie Casey Dead - 'Revenge of the Nerds' Actor Dies at 78
"We do not expect diverse countries to share the same cultures, values or systems of Government", he said. He called out thug nations like Iran, Venezuela and, most importantly, North Korea with a line Churchill would be proud of: "The scourge of our planet today is a small group of rogue regimes that violate every principle on which the United Nations is based. This is the lovely vision of this institution and the foundation for cooperation and success".
