Trump slated for UN address
US President Donald Trump has been heavily criticised for his speech to the UN General Assembly on Tuesday.
He set his sights on Iran and Venezuela saying they are despotic regimes.
There is also a concern after he vowed to “totally destroy” North Korea if it threatened the United States or its allies.
Addressing the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, Trump took aim at Kim Jong-un, saying "Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime."
