Donald Trump trained his rhetorical cannons at Iran and China on Tuesday, telling world leaders and a global audience that the Islamist nation’s ‘bloodlust’ and Beijing’s trade manipulations are testing his patience.

At the annual United Nations General Assembly, the U.S. president said nationalism must overrule globalism as people assert their rights. Globalism has ‘exerted a religious pull over past leaders, causing them to ignore their own national interests,’ he said.

‘But as far as America is concerned, those days are over.’

Trump adopted an uncharacteristically dour, plodding tone – a State Department source said afterward that it was to accommodate translators working in dozens of languages – that robbed from his usual fire-and-brimstone approach to diplomacy.

He used a teleprompter and appeared to stick to his script.

In his 37 minutes remarks, Trump called Iran’s nuclear saber-rattling ‘one of the greatest threats facing peace-loving nations today and reiterated the U.S. government’s longstanding view of the Middle Eastern power as ‘the world’s number one state sponsor of terrorism.’

On the heels of Iran’s attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil infrastructure, he made a direct appeal to the country’s people – blaming the regime there for ‘squandering the nation’s wealth in a fanatical quest to develop weapons.’

‘No responsible government should subsidize Iran’s bloodlust,’ he said, blasting Tehran for ‘monstrous anti-Semitism’ – and saying Iran’s anti-Israel credos are ‘like a malignant tumor that has to be eradicated.’

‘It is time for Iran’s leaders to finally put the Iranian people first,’ he said, test-firing an olive branch: ‘The United States has never believed in permanent enemies.’
