It wasn’t the fiery campaign or rally speech that the President is usually noted for. However, although subdued and low key in tone, the message was indeed loud and clear.
A confident almost serene President Trump came to the UN on Tuesday to address world leaders assembled before the General Assembly, and methodically without fanfare recited where America stands on the world stage, no doubt to the dismay of both the “globalists” and open-border activists who were purposely singled out by the President.
“Today, I have a message for those open border activists who cloak themselves in the rhetoric of social justice: Your policies are not just, your policies are cruel and evil,” he said, accusing them of promoting human smuggling and the “erasure of national borders.”
“You are empowering criminal organizations that prey on innocent men, women, and children. You put your own false sense of virtue before the lives and well-being of countless innocent people,” he said. “When you undermine border security, you are undermining human rights and human dignity.”
The stunning broadside was delivered void of emotion, as a statement of fact that caught the assembled leaders by surprise, which dovetailed into a wider theme regarding the misguided concept of open borders along with “globalists,” pushing their agenda for a one-world government.
Although the President’s demeanor appeared serious and somber, his message was clear. America is the “big dog” on the world stage, with a robust economy that is the envy of the world, matched only by the most powerful military the world has ever known.
He spoke about patriotism and the need for world leaders to put their countries interests first, to respect their citizens and to do what’s right for them, before they can take care of others.
“Wise leaders always put the good of their own people and their country first. The future does not belong to globalists, the future belongs to patriots,” he said earlier in the speech. “The future belongs to sovereign and independent nations who protect their citizens, respect their neighbors and honor the differences that make each country special and unique.”
Like a dad reminding his forgetful teen, the President advised member nations, “If you want freedom, take pride in your country. If you want democracy, hold on to your sovereignty. If you want peace, love your nation.”
The Presidents message was clear; it was in a sense a call to arms, a nation’s sovereignty versus globalists who’ve thus far have high jacked most of those leaders assembled within the UN, and most will go on believing in a one-world government.
The Commander-in-Chief than pivoted to Iran, extending an olive branch and urging the Islamic regime to put its people first and to abandon its quest for nuclear weapons and support of terror in the region.
He once again told the assembled delegates that America doesn’t seek a conflict with Iran, and suggested that if Iran actually seeks peace they could once again become an economic power within the region; however warned the terrorist state that if they continue their foolish military provocations that “I will never fail to defend America’s interests.”
Trump also took the opportunity to address the ongoing trade war with China, saying that it’s time for the communist nation to play fair.
“For decades, the international trading system has been easily exploited by nations acting in very bad faith,” he said. “As jobs were outsourced, a small handful grew wealthy at the expense of the middle class.”
The President is no doubt the odd man out, when it comes to the UN, a position that most patriotic Americans welcome.
