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.

Right vs. Left: The Time for Compromise Is OVER | Jesse Kelly | Ep 146

The Left worked for decades to get control, and now they have it: “Every cultural pillar has been infected and taken over,” Jesse Kelly warns Glenn. So, it’s time to get out of the stands and onto the field. On this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," the host of the nationally syndicated "Jesse Kelly Show" joins with a blunt message for the Right: The time for compromise is gone. This system that’s raising young people who hate America can’t be salvaged, and while taking back Congress in 2022 would be nice, LOCAL victories are what really matter. But this won’t be a quick fight. Thankfully, Jesse has some solutions, and they involve Play-Doh …

Where are our STANDARDS, America?

Since when are we the people that throw our hands up and accept the new normal?

We're the people, that despite all odds, we took it on. We didn't settle for less. And that's what they're telling you to do now, settle for less.

No. That's not who we are. Why would we be willing to sit around and wait for the government to fix it?

Don't lower your standards. That's un-American. We don't lower our standards. We raise standards. And that is our legacy.

Elon Musk CALLED OUT for…chocolate milk?

You can milk anything with nipples, as we discovered in the documentary Meet the Parents. Maybe someone should tell Elon Musk if he's really serious about the environment, he should try oat milk, almond milk, heck — there's even banana milk. It would at least keep some of the lefty trolls at bay.

Biden’s border bloodbath: The deadly crisis EXPOSED

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.
