Trump, who begins his political rallies with boasts about his economic record in less than two years in office, used the same rhetoric before the crowd of world leaders and diplomats, telling them he had accomplished more than nearly any previous USA president. "They do not want me or us to win because I am the first president to challenge China on trade".
Trump said at a NY news conference that he views such accusations "differently" because he's "had a lot of false charges made against me".
"So true", Trump said as he looked out at the crowd of United Nations diplomats.
Tensions with North Korea have eased since last year's General Assembly, when Trump called North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "rocket man" and threatened to "totally destroy" the country if it threatened the USA or its allies.
"We need to build together a long-term strategy in order to manage this crisis and it can not boil down to just sanctions and containment", Macron said. "They do not respect their neighbors or borders or the sovereign rights of nations".
"During the past 40 years we have been subjected to that type of language many times", he said."In this American administration, unfortunately, the language has been said to be somewhat unique and they speak with a different style, presumably because they are new to politics", he said. Other parties to the nuclear deal are reluctant to go along, noting that Iran continues to abide by the terms of the agreement. "But not in the way that they're mandated on what the United States does or that infringes on the American people".

Tensions have soared between Beijing and Washington after Trump this week slapped new tariffs covering $200 billion in Chinese goods exported to the United States.
"With no links to the USA financial system, the idea is, the payment system would be protected from the main US sanctions threat-disconnecting a firm from USA markets".
While Wednesday's meeting of the council will be addressing the issue of nonproliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, Trump himself has left little doubt that it'll be another chance to target Tehran.
Trump started his United Nations speech much like one of his signature campaign rallies: by touting his achievements since taking office two years ago in trademark hyperbolic terms.
However, Trump added that sanctions on the nation will stay in place "until denuclearization occurs".
Macron responded to that, too, by saying he rejects Trump's ideas on globalism. On Tuesday, Trump praised Kim for halting nuclear and missile tests, releasing Americans held prisoner and returning some remains of United States soldiers killed in the 1950s Korean War.
