President Trump defended his "America First" agenda in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, in effect spiking the football at what his secretary of state described as the "Super Bowl of diplomacy."
"The United States is a stronger, safer, and richer country than it was when I assumed office less than two years ago," Trump declared. "We are standing up for America and the American people and we are also standing up for the world."
