Glenn: This Quote From Trump’s UN Speech Is Chilling – What Does It Mean?

What happened?

President Donald Trump is making his first appearance at the United Nations General Assembly this week. He addressed world leaders this morning and called for the world to confront the Kim regime and the nuclear threat from North Korea.

Some key quotes from Trump:

  • “If the righteous many do not confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph.”
  • “Our government’s first duty is to its people, to our citizens, to serve their needs, to ensure their safety, to preserve their rights, and to defend their values.”
  • “It is time for North Korea to realize that the denuclearization is its only acceptable future. … It is time for all nations to work together to isolate the Kim regime until it ceases its hostile behavior.”

Glenn’s take:

Glenn zeroed in on one crucial quote from Trump’s speech: If the U.S. “is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.”

Glenn praised Trump’s strong rhetoric and his stand for American sovereignty, but he wondered if Trump’s threats toward North Korea meant he was truly prepared to take on the Kim regime.

“That is either a whole lot of bravado or this situation is on the verge of spiraling out of control,” Glenn said.

GLENN: President Trump just got finished with his address to the United Nations. As expected, went strong on North Korea. Quote, if the righteous many don't confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph. End quote.

That is a great line.

But what happens if from Trump's perspective, there is a lack of righteous many willing to step forward. Does that mean America is willing to go it alone? According to his speech today at the United Nations, it kind of sounds like it.

He -- he said a phrase that made my blood run a little chilly. That if the United States is, quote, forced to defend itself and its allies, we will have no choice, but to totally destroy North Korea.

Holy cow. What -- what?

Now, that is either a whole lot of bravado, or this situation is on the verge of spiraling out of control. Yesterday, Defense Secretary Mattis said that kinetic military options that could ensure the safety of Seoul were viable and on the table.

I'm -- I'm curious. Is the survival of the South Korean capital the only thing holding Trump back here?

Because we know that a nuclear-armed North Korea doesn't threaten South Korea.

Kim Jong-un is not going to nuke Seoul with an ICBM. That's the threat that the United States has to deal with.

Perhaps the statement at the end of his speech was a hint to South Korea. He said, quote, in foreign affairs, we are renewing this founding principle of sovereignty.

This is such a great line. As president, I will always put America first, just like you as leaders of your countries will always do. And you should always put your country first.

All responsible leaders have an obligation to serve their own citizens. Our government's first duty is to its people, end quote.

I'm not sure if we're nearing the endgame in this standoff. I'm not sure. But I do know it's not making me more comfortable every day that goes by.

Ultimately, it may come down to an outcome we have not seen since World War II. And if it does, the world changes dramatically overnight. Let us all pray that cooler heads will prevail.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.

Glenn SNAPS over Dem corruption: ‘It’s NOT OVER!’

Glenn has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just for everyone to look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China...the list goes on, but no consequences are ever paid. So while the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, and insists no one can question it, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair. But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands.
