US President Donald Trump raised a toast to «the great, great potential of the United Nations» at the end of his address to world leaders during the UN official luncheon, at the UN headquarters, in New York City, Tuesday. Trump, who has criticised the UN in the past, said «the potential of the United States in terms of what it's done has been wonderful, but we can do better and we're going to... Еще. The potential of the United Nations is unlimited», adding «you're going to do things that will be epic». The luncheon was held on the first day of the 72nd United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). During his first speech at the UNGA, Trump said that the United States would “totally destroy” North Korea if threatened. In his luncheon speech, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres urged world leaders to seized the “chance to influence the history of the times to come.” “History strongly depends on the individual action of every one of us and I don’t think it is possible to imagine a room in the world where so many leaders are gathered, where so much power is concentrated,” he said. Representatives of all 193 UN member states gathered in New York City for the first day of the 72nd UNGA session. The gathering is set to continue until September 25.
