María Fernanda Espinosa Garcés, President-elect of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA), announced in July 2018 that the theme of the general debate will be, ‘Making the United Nations Relevant to All People: Global Leadership and Shared Responsibilities for Peaceful, Equitable and Sustainable Societies.’ The list of speakers is here.

The response prompted laughter from some diplomats at the U.N. headquarters in New York. “Didn’t expect that reaction,” Trump said, “but that’s okay.” In the video “Trump brags at UN, crowd laughs” below:

On Wednesday, Sep. 26, 2018, President Donald Trump criticized Iran and China at the start of Wednesday’s U.N. Security Council meeting over nonproliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. It was Trump’s first time leading the meeting, part of the United Nations General Assembly in New York City. In his opening remarks, the president renewed his criticism of Iranian leaders and accused China of “attempting to interfere” in the upcoming U.S. midterm elections. Trump suggested that Chinese leaders didn’t want him to win. “They don’t want us to win, because I am the first president to challenge them on trade,” he said.
