That’s the only word I have to describe the barnstormer of a speech President Trump just delivered before the United Nations.
Trump took no prisoners in decrying countries that continue to be a pain in our behind. He made it clear that he was elected to represent America, not the world. As such, he would defend our country first and foremost. The U.N. comes second – America comes first.
Trump: I will always put America first just like you will always put your countries first. All responsible leaders need to do it

Trump wasted little time before laying into North Korea, sending a clear message about its dangerous activity. The regime of Kim Jong-un is, in Trump’s words, on a “suicide mission” by continuing to test missiles. The president was unequivocal in his assessment:
Wow: If US or allies threatened "We will have no choice but to totally destroy #NorthKorea" – Trump

Trump then set his sights on Iran, and the dreaded nuclear deal former President Barack Obama cooked up with the rogue nation. The president minced no words when it came to his feelings on the deal: “The Iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States 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.”
Trump wasn’t done there. He didn’t just trash the flawed deal Obama brokered. He went after Iran itself, saying, “The Iranian government masks a corrupt dictatorship behind the false guise of a democracy. It has turned a wealthy country with a rich history and culture into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed and chaos.”
BOOM! We never heard sharp and true rhetoric like that from President Appeasement, who was more interested in pleasing the mullahs than protecting our great ally Israel.

President Trump received a lot of criticism for his full-throated defense of America and her allies. But one person who liked the speech was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He not only praised the speech, but called it one of the clearest, most courageous speeches before the U.N. he has ever heard:

I call that a ringing endorsement.
