… Those will be the headlines from President Trump's first address to the countries of the world at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, and for good reason. It was perhaps the most aggressive speech ever delivered by a U.S. president at the U.N., an organization whose founding document encouraged the nations of the world to seek peace, promote human rights and uphold international law. …

….  He envisions an international order in which each nation pursues its own self interests — and cooperates only when those interests converge. …

… But at the United Nations, Trump wanted the other 192 members to know: It's not just "America First."

It's every nation first. 

"As president of the United States, I will always put America first, just like you, as the leaders of your countries, will always — and should always — put your countries first," he told the other delegations to a round of applause

"Strong, sovereign nations," he said, in a phrase he repeatedly emphasized, "let their people take ownership of the future and control their own destiny."…

… Trump called for "a great reawakening of nations" to address the world's problems. With its tough talk, Biblical tone and nationalist themes, Trump's speech carried the voice of one of his most hard-line White House advisers, Stephen Miller. "If the righteous many do not confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph," Trump said

… He began the speech by talking about his election victory, the stock market's record high, good job numbers and his defense budget. He ended it with a tribute to the "forgotten" American middle class. …

In between, he hit on many of the resentments that propelled his campaign for president.

… He argued for helping refugees where they are, as opposed to resettling them in the United States. He spoke of the costs — "often ignored by both media and government" — of immigration. And he complained that other countries have "gamed the system and broke the rules" on trade.

"We can no longer be taken advantage of, or enter into a one-sided deal where the United States gets nothing in return," Trump said Tuesday. "As long as I hold this office, I will defend America’s interests above all else."…
