Trump criticises Iran as 'corrupt dictatorship' at U.N.

U.S. President Donald Trump criticised Iran on Tuesday as a 'corrupt dictatorship' that is plundering the Iranian people to pay for aggression abroad, using his speech to the United Nations General Assembly to lay down a tough message for Tehran.'Iran's leaders sow chaos, death and destruction,'Mr. Trump told the annual gathering. 'They do not respect their neighbors or borders or the sovereign rights of nations.'
Mr. Trump compared U.S. relations with Iran to what he called improved ties with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, praising him for halting nuclear and missile tests and returning some U.S. remains from the 1950s Korean War. Trump had called Kim a 'rocket man' bent on nuclear destruction in his U.N. speech last year.Mr. Trump used his speech to call for international trade reforms and insist that his main objective as president is to protect American sovereignty. He called on OPEC to stop raising oil prices and criticized China's trade practices.
And Mr. Trump prompted some murmuring from the crowd of world leaders and diplomats when he declared that he had accomplished more as president than almost any other administration in history.
