President Donald Trump will deliver his first address to the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday at 10 am. His remarks will be streamed on the UN’s live feed, available below…

Since late yesterday, senior members of the Trump administration, a group that may include the president himself, have been furiously leaking details of the president’s first address to the United Nations to various media outlets. The upshot, according to the WSJ, is that the president’s speech – perhaps his most highly anticipated since his first address to a joint session of Congress back in February – will focus largely on railing against the US’s many geopolitical enemies while attempting to reconcile Trump’s “America First” populism with the US’s role as a global leader. In particular, he’s expected to try and rally international support for suppressing North Korea’s nuclear program, while labeling both Iran and the isolated North as “global threats.” Moving further down the list of US enemies, Trump is expected to castigate Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro for his anti-demoncratic crackdowns as his country continues to sink into economic chaos, driven by low oil prices and years of mismanagement.

According to WSJ, Trump will also touch on the need for reforming the UN, which he criticized in remarks made Monday during a working group for being too bloated and overly bureaucratic, while advocating a foreign policy that’s “driven by outcomes.”
