Last year, Trump spent his president's address deriding North Korea's Kim Jong Un as a "Rocket Man", but this year his message was different.

On Monday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo previewed President Trump's remarks and said he would target Iran for their ongoing and disruptive behavior.

The hostile rhetoric was part of a concerted effort by the Trump administration to muster global support for pressuring Iran as world leaders convene in NY for the United Nations General Assembly.

Let my message today be clear: "We are watching, and we will come after you", Mr Bolton told an anti-Iran conference during the UN General Assembly in NY.

On Tuesday, Trump praised Kim for halting nuclear and missile tests, releasing Americans held prisoner and returning some remains of USA soldiers killed in the 1950s Korean War.

This time around, Trump heralded his own diplomacy on North Korea including a historic summit in June with Kim, saying he has worked to "replace the specter of conflict with a bold and new push for peace".

Mr Trump also boasted that his administration had accomplished "more than nearly any" other in USA history. "We only ask that you honor our sovereignty in return", he said.

Earlier this month, Ambassador Nikki Haley announced that the US would not longer "give money to people who are against the USA, or say, 'Death to America.' or do anything that would be anti-U.S". Instead, Iran's leaders plunder the nation's resources to enrich themselves and spread mayhem across the Middle East and far beyond. He emphasised that the sanctions will remain in place until denuclearisation occurs.

In his address past year to the UN, Trump insulted Kim as a "rocket man" bent on nuclear destruction.

Trump administration pulled out of the historic 2015 nuclear deal, which was negotiated for nearly 2 years and was spearheaded under the reign of the former US President Barak Obama.

In the speech, Mr Trump's second before the UN General Assembly, he defended his tough stance on trade with China.
