In face of blank stares, headshake, and frowning, U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday delivered a speech at the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly, touting his America First foreign policy and trade stance, while attacking globalism.
 
SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH): DONALD TRUMP, US President
"We've never surrendered American sovereignty to an unelected, unaccountable, global bureaucracy. America is governed by Americans. We reject the ideology of globalism, and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism."
 
Trump highlighted his commitment to "putting sovereignty above global governance" and defended several of his highly controversial diplomatic decisions.
 
He attacked several international organizations and treaties, such as UN Human Rights Council, International Criminal Court and the Iran nuclear deal, all of which his administration has announced to exit or sanction against.
 
He lashed out at Iran, Venezuela and Germany, among others, boasting about the just-announced U.S. sanctions on Venezuela earlier on Tuesday.
 
According to several media outlets on-site, the speech, meeting with blank stares, headshake, and frowning all over the process, has ended "in polite, muted applause".
