World leaders have held no punches in their unfavorable reviews of President Donald Trump’s first appearance at the UN General Assembly, calling him everything from “a giant gold Goliath” to “mentally deranged” and perhaps most famously now, “dotard”.
Most of the insults came from the mouth of past enemies of the US, but it was also fellow rivals for power who aimed their targets at the president and about an America which they called a nation currently being used to “lord it over others.” If, perhaps those were to be expected, the surprise came from the softer criticisms from countries that have long been our allies in the global arena.
Their was a bubbling concerned from the allies about Trump’s stance on Iran, North Korea and climate change showing there’s a growing chance that the US might soon become isolated from the international stage.
Even Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who has held a pretty amicable relationship with Trump considering, called him out for his infamous choice to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.
“There is no country on the planet that can walk away from the challenge and reality of climate change,” Trudeau said in a speech to the UN Thursday.
