The New York Times reports:
If the United States is “forced to defend itself and its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,” President Trump told the gathering.
In his address to the General Assembly on Tuesday morning, Mr. Trump denounced North Korea and its leader, Kim Jong-un, saying the nation “threatens the entire world with unthinkable loss of life” as a result of its nuclear weapons program.
“If the righteous many don’t confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph,” he said. Mr. Trump emphasized that it was against the interest of the entire world for North Korea — which he called a “band of criminals” — to obtain missiles and nuclear weapons. “Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself,” he said of Mr. Kim.
He’s going to kill us all.
