In front of the United Nations on Tuesday, Trump asked the rest of the world to denounce Iran and work with America in stopping Iran’s “pursuit of death and destruction.” He said this in relation to Iran of the past, a country with a “rich history and culture.” 

Trump demanded the release of American prisoners from Iranian prisons, of which there are four confirmed prisoners, with a fifth who has been missing for decades. 

Trump also spoke of the nuclear agreement with Iran, saying that he is only hesitantly accepting it, as he considers it a one-sided agreement. This Wednesday, September 20, Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia, and the United States went over this agreement to see if there is room for improvement. As of now, inspectors say that Iran has not broken any part of the agreement.
