In my opinion, President Trump made one of the best speeches of his life at the UN. It was incredibly bold, powerful, and brutally true. He held nothing back. He tore into North Korea as a brutal dictatorship; he at length revealed the evils of Iran; and he denounced the recent overthrow of Venezuela and the present socialist dictatorship.
Many praised Trump’s speech. Benjamin Netanyahu said that he spoke the truth about the great dangers facing our world. Mitt Romney said that he gave a strong and needed challenge to UN members. But others said that he was shockingly reckless and had dangerous rhetoric. One article I saw called the speech “terrifying” and “delusional.”
So it seems obvious that not all people agree with what President Trump said. In fact, his speech reveals that our country (and the world) is quite divided. We are divided in many ways, but I think primarily we are divided in terms of our belief system—that is, in what we believe is right and wrong, good and bad. We are divided in terms of what we believe about God, or how we believe in God and His word. I won’t take the time now to further define the two groups, except to say that one is more conservative and the other is more liberal.
I invite you to watch Trump’s 42 minute speech and judge it for yourself.
I also suggest listening to the praise of John Bolton, as he said that it was “the best speech of the Trump Presidency.”
