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.

WARNING from a survivor: Is China’s horrific past America’s terrifying future?

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Segregation Survivor: How to Counter BLM's Race LIES | Bob Woodson | Ep 106

Civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson has lived through segregation and been a victim of racism. But he doesn't fit the Left's mold. In fact, he's providing an alternative narrative to their "equity." With the Woodson Center and 1776 Unites, he is offering solutions that BLM rejects, but that are actually helping improve the lives of countless people trapped in poverty and inner-city violence. He goes through all of this and more in his latest book, "Red, White, and Black: Rescuing American History from Revisionists and Race Hustlers." And he joins Glenn to make the case that the radical Left does not represent the majority of the black community. As leftist race-baiters make millions off branding the police as white supremacists while breaking the spirits of Americans of ALL races, Woodson calls out their moral treason, speaks truth to power, and denounces real racism for what it truly is: evil.

Biden's Big Speech: The Glenn Beck & Mark Levin Rebuttal

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

Is 2022 Our Last Chance to Save America? | Victor Davis Hanson | Ep 105

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself. And he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded and stop taking so much for granted. Hanson joins Glenn to point out that this needs to happen soon, because as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting ... bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.
