The entire United Nations just laughed in the middle of Trump's speech

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani speaks in a meeting with US media officials in New York

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani speaks in a meeting with US media officials in New York

"Didn't expect that reaction but that's okay", Trump responded, as the delegates in the UNGA hall laughed and clapped.

Rouhani said it was "quite unusual, unprecedented and amazing" that while presiding over the Security Council as its president Trump also called on the 14 other council members to violate the legally binding resolution endorsing the JCPOA that the council adopted unanimously in 2015 - including a "yes" vote from the United States. Trump says the deal was a "horrible" agreement that didn't do enough to contain Iranian "aggression".

Trump reimposed some sanctions on Iran after withdrawing from the nuclear deal, and he plans to ratchet up the pressure in November with sanctions on Tehran's oil sector.

Pompeo argues that the president's focus on defending American sovereignty has paid dividends for both the USA and the rest of the world.

"The United States will not tell you how to live or work or worship", Trump told the global assembly.

The broadside against Iran was emblematic of Trump's willingness to go it alone on the world stage to advance what he sees as USA interests, a central theme of his speech to the general assembly.

He touted his "highly productive" summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and pointed to progress on denuclearization, thanking Kim "for his courage".

While the president's approach to North Korea has softened, his attitude toward Iran has not.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday said that as long as the Iran nuke deal meets with Iran's interests, his country will remain in the deal.

"But we ask the United States to adhere to laws and to respect national sovereignty of nations", he said.

Tiger Woods wins Tour Championship
Tiger Woods has continued his monumental rise up the World Golf Rankings after his first PGA Tour victory in over five years. At one stage, Woods was also projected to win the FedEx Cup outright with Justin Rose dropping rapidly down the leaderboard.

Trump, and the majority of the world's leaders, convened for the U.N. General Assembly in NY on Tuesday.

It came after the commander in chief said the American economy is booming like never before.

Rouhani accused the USA of pressuring other countries to violate the nuclear agreement and threatening to punish those who comply with the Security Council resolution endorsing it.

It was only the third time in United Nations history that a U.S. president chaired a Security Council meeting. Trump has also slashed countless regulations, which can be viewed here.

When he continued "So true", any attempts to muffle laughter in the room were thrown out, with the laughing at the US President heard very clearly around the room. "We will not allow our workers to be victimized, our companies to be cheated, and our wealth to be plundered and transferred".

"We need a President who isn't a laughing stock to the entire World".

"Together, let us choose a future of patriotism, prosperity and pride", Trump said. In my opinion, for any country that can trample upon US sanctions, this would be a great point of pride because of the illegal nature of those sanctions.

Rouhani took what many perceived to be veiled shots at Trump in his speech to the UNGA on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the Iranian chief executive also met with leaders of US Muslim communities in NY.
