President Donald Trump will lay out his vision for global integration during the 72nd United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) at around 9.30am EDT (2.30pm BST) today.
The customary 15 minute speech will give the President a chance to promote global peace, prosperity, sovereignty and accountability, Mr Trump’s aides have claimed.
According to US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, the rest of there world is “anxious” to hear the controversial figurehead.
Speaking on Friday, she said: “They are all anxious to see what the US delegation looks like next week, and I think they will be heavily impressed with the fact that we have the President, the Vice President, the Secretary of State, and many members of the National Security Council coming to really show the US strength that we have in the world.
She added: “I personally think he slaps the right people, he hugs the right people, and he comes out with the US being very strong in the end.”
Mr Trump, who arrived at the UN HQ on Monday, is understood to focus heavily today on the issue of North Korea and Iran.
“This will be a great week, we look forward to it, as far as North Korea is concerned, I think that most of you know how I feel,” the President said yesterday.
Mr Trump, who heavily criticised the UN during his presidential campaign, will likely also address the supposed “mismanagement” of the UN since 1945.
“Make the United Nations great,” President Trump told reporters on Monday. “Not again. Make the United Nations great.
“Such tremendous potential, and I think we’ll be able to do this.”
