Trump vs. the world: POTUS clashes with fellow leaders at UN

September 29, 2019 0 By Stanley Isaacs


♪>>Dana: PRESIDENT TRUMP AT THE UNITED NATIONS TODAY WHERE HIS AMERICA FIRST AGENDA IS CREATING STARK DIFFERENCES WITH WORLD LEADERS. HE HAS ALREADY BUTTED HEADS ON CLIMATE CHANGE, NORTH KOREA AND IRAN IT. ALL COMES BEFORE THE PRESIDENT’S BIG SPEECH TOMORROW BEFORE THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY. THAT’S HAPPENING AROUND 10:15 TOMORROW. I WILL BE ON WITH MARTHA AND — I KNOW YOU CANNOT WAIT FOR THAT DO YOU ENJOY SEEING THE PRESIDENT UP THERE WITH THE WORLD LEADERS.>>Jesse: I LOVE IT. MUCH BETTER THAN WATCHING BARACK OBAMA UP THERE AT THE SAME TIME. IT COMES DOWN TO WE HAVE OUR BOYS. WE HAVE THE BRITISH AND AUSTRALIANS AND CANADIANS.>>Dana: DON’T FORGET MICRONESIA.>>Greg: MY SOUL COUNTRY.>>Jesse: NOT SURE WHY WE HAVE MIKE DEGREE NEARBY MIVE MIKE DEGREE NEARBY MICR MIKE DEGREE NEARBY MICRONIKE DEGREE NEARBY MICRONESE DEGREE NEARBY MICRONESIADEGREE NEARBY MICRONESIA.EGREE NEARBY THEY ARE ALWAYS SITTING THERE WITH THEIR HAND OUT. WE GIVE THEM BILLIONS OF DOLLARS. ONCE WE CUT THE CHECK WE HAVE NO IDEA WHERE THE MONEY IS GOING. THEY ALWAYS VOTE AGAINST US. BUFF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY? THEY ARE VOTING THEIR OWN INTERESTS. PEOPLE VOTING THEIR OWN INTERESTS. THAT’S VERY IMPORTANT. I DON’T WANT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES POPULAR AT THE U.N. IF HE IS POPULAR AT THE U.N., HE IS NOT PUTTING AMERICA FIRST. THAT’S WHAT THIS IS ABOUT. THE U.N., AND ALL THESE INDIVIDUAL COUNTRIES, THEY TRY TO CONSTRAIN AMERICA, OUR ENERGY, OUR MILITARY, ANY TIME WE ARE TRYING TO ROOT OUT CORRUPTION OR CALL THEM OUT FOR THEIR, YOU KNOW, IMMORAL CONDUCT, THAT’S FINE THE FACT IS THEY HAVE A HISTORY OF RAPING, PILLAGING AND SQUANDERING MONEY AND BLOCKING DEMOCRATIC PROGRESS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. SO I DON’T LIKE BEING LECTURED BY THEM AND I’M SURE THE PRESIDENT DOESN’T LIKE BEING LECTURED BY THEM, EITHER. DO YOU THINK THE CHINESE CARE WHAT THE U.N. THINKS THE RUSSIANS CARE? NO ONE CARES. WE USE THEM WHEN WE NEED THEM AND THEN WHEN WE DON’T NEED THEM WE DO WHAT WE WANT.>>Dana: I DON’T KNOW IF YOU AGREE WITH, THIS I WAS THINKING ABOUT IT BEFORE THE SHOW, THE U.N., YOU HEAR A LOT MORE ABOUT THEM AND REALLY, YOU KIND OF HAVEN’T IN THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS. IT’S ALMOST AS IF THEY ARE OFF ON THEIR OWN DOING SOMETHING NOBODY KNOWS ABOUT.>>Juan: NO, OBVIOUSLY THE UNITED STATES HAS HAD MAJOR DIFFERENCES IN TERMS OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL AND KIND OF VOTES THAT HAVE TAKEN PLACE. STARK DIFFERENCE BETWEEN U.S. POLICY. I DON’T KNOW THAT THEY ARE ANTI-SEMITIC AS MY FRIEND SAID.>>Jesse: I THINK THERE IS A RECORD OF ANTI-SEMITISM.>>Juan: I THINK ARABS ARE SEMITE.>>Jesse: ANTI-ISRAELI.>>Juan: ESPECIALLY CLEAR WITH TRUMP IN THE WHITE HOUSE U.N. DOESN’T SET U.S. FOREIGN POLICY. THE BETTER ARGUMENT I WOULD MAKE SORT OF CONTRARY WHAT WE JUST HEARD FROM JESSE IS THAT THIS PRESIDENT HAS AIL I DIDN’T KNOW NATEED SO ALDIDN’T KNOW NATEED SO ALIEDN’T KNOW NATEED SO ALIENA’T KNOW NATEED SO ALIENATE KNOW NATEED SO ALIENATEDKNOW NATEED SO ALIENATED SOW NATEED SO ALIENATED SO MNATEED SO ALIENATED SO MANTEED SO ALIENATED SO MANYEED SO ALIENATED SO MANY OD SO ALIENATED SO MANY OF SO ALIENATED SO MANY OF OO ALIENATED SO MANY OF OUR ALLIES. THEN YOU COME DOWN TO HIS FOREIGN POLICY. DIDN’T WE JUST SEND TROOPS TO SAUDI ARABIA. WE PULL OUT OF THE IRAN DEAL IT. SEEMS TO DESTABILIZE THE REGION, HAD REPERCUSSIONS HE DIDN’T ANTICIPATE. YOU LOOK AT WHAT’S GOING ON IN NORTH KOREA. THEY ARE TESTING MORE MISSILES. YOU STOP AND YOU THINK ABOUT THE AFGHAN PULLOUT. WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT? I THINK WE ARE STILL IN AFGHANISTAN. SYRIA IS ON FIRE. THAT’S OUR FOREIGN POLICY. THAT’S NOT THE UNITED NATIONS.>>Dana: OKAY.>>Greg: THAT’S CALLED A LAUNDRY LIST WAY YOU HAVE ARGUING. EACH ONE ALONE DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING. PUT THEM TOGETHER IT MEANS ZERO.>>Juan: OUR FOREIGN POLICY UNDER PRESIDENT TRUMP.>>Greg: EACH ONE OF THOSE TAKE THEM APART NORTH KOREA SMALL MISSILES THEY ARE TESTING. THE ANALOGY I WOULD USE IS THAT THE U.N. IS LIKE THE COLLEGE UNDERGRADS AND THEY EXPECT THE DEAN, THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES TO APPEASE AND LISTEN TO THEIR COMPLAINTS AND SAY WE WILL DO THE BEST WE CAN. HE IS NOT GOING TO DO THAT RIGHT? HE IS NOT GOING TO SIT THERE AND GO OH WE UNDERSTAND HERE TAKE MORE MONEY EVEN THOUGH DISCRIMINATE AGAINST WOMEN AND GUYS AND JEWS. THEY DEMAND MONEY FROM AMERICA AND TRUMP ISN’T GIVING INTO THEM. SPEAK TO WHETHER OR NOT HE IS ALIENATING ANYBODY. WHENEVER I SEE HIM AROUND WORLD LEADERS THEY EITHER WANT TO MEET HIM OR BE HIM.>>Dana: TALK BADLY BEHIND HIS BACK THEY ACTUALLY IS PRETTY SUPPORTIVE. NEXT ON THIS LIST OF SUPPORT, CANADA, AUSTRALIA, GREAT BRITAIN, FRANCE, THAT SOUNDS.>>Greg: MICRONESIA.>>Dana: DON’T FORGET THE CZECH REPUBLIC.>>Emily: THE LEFT MAKES A BIG DEAL ABOUT THE PRESIDENT BEING AT ODD WITH THE U.N. LEADERSHIP. THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE WORLD DOESN’T SEE THEM AS THIS GLOWING INTERNATIONAL BODY. THEY ARE NOT THE PHYSICAL CHANGE MAKER FRANKLY THAT THEY WERE EITHER SUPPOSED TO BE OR THAT THEY THINK THEY’RE. THE PARIS CLIMATE ACCORD WAS SYMBOLIC. THEY FILED HOLD CHINA ACCOUNTABLE. WE LOST OUT AND THERE WAS INCREMENTAL EFFECT ON THE CLIMATE. THEY REFUSE TO CONDEMN HAMAS AND TO RESPONDENT TO YOUR REQUEST FOR STATISTICS FOR ANTI-SEMITISM. LAST YEAR THE U.N. PASSED 21 RESOLUTIONS CONDEMNING ISRAEL AND ONLY SIX FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD. THEY ADOPTED NINE RESOLUTIONS AGAINST ISRAEL AND TOTALLY IGNORED SAUDI ARABIA, VENEZUELA, CHINA, TUCKERY, PAKISTAN, ET CETERA, ON AND ON. I THINK WE SHOULD EMPHASIZE AS WELL THE FACT THAT THE PRESIDENT THIS WEEK IS MEETING BILATERALLY WITH SO MANY LEADERS, PAKISTAN, INDIA, EGYPT, JAPAN, ETSZ, WHICH, TO ME, IS SO MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT ON THE INTERNATIONAL DIPLOMACY FRONT.
