United States President Donald Trump says at the United Nations that the Iranian government is an “economically depleted rogue state” whose chief export is violence.
Trump told world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly that the world cannot allow the “murderous regime” to continue its destabilizing activities while building dangerous missiles.
The president also questioned the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran. He says world leaders “cannot abide” by the agreement if it “provides cover” for Iran to eventually build its nuclear program.
The administration last week extended sanctions relief to Iran, avoiding imminent action that could implode the landmark agreement.
