In surprisingly hostile UN speech, Trump comes out swinging against Iran

News ID: 4092089 -
TEHRAN, Sep. 19 (MNA) – US President Donald Trump gave a harsh assessment of the Iranian nation calling Iran nuclear deal an “embarrassment”.

During his first address to the United Nations General Assembly as President on Tuesday, Donald Trump gave a harsh assessment of the Iranian nation . "Iran is a “murderous regime” and that the nuclear deal negotiated by his predecessor with the country is an “embarrassment”, Independent reported.

Lashing out at the historic nuclear deal, he said “the Iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the US has ever entered into; frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States, and I don't think you've heard the last of it. Believe me.”

He also called Iran a violent and oppressive regime, and called on the country to release US and other foreign citizens currently held in prisons there.

Trump made his biased and full of hatred remarks, while Iran has repeatedly warned that pulling back from the 2015 nuclear deal would force America to pay a "high cost". Iranian President Hassan Rouhani reiterated that threat just a day before Trump delivered his hostile remarks at the United Nations.

"Exiting such an agreement would carry a high cost for the United States of America, and I do not believe Americans would be willing to pay such a high cost for something that will be useless for them," Mr Rouhani said during an interview in New York.
