"Iran’s leaders sow chaos, death and destruction they do not respect their neighbors borders or the sovereign rights of nations," Trump said.
He said additional sanctions will resume in the coming months and said the world must ensure that "the world's leading sponsor of terrorism to possess the world’s most dangerous weapons."
He vowed to continue to support "Iran's people."
President Trump also told world leaders "we are systematically renegotiating broken and bad trade deals."
Citing his bids to renegotiate trade deals around the world, Trump said during an address at the United Nations that "many nations in this hall will agree the world trading system is in dire need of change."
Singling out China for its trade abuses and theft of US intellectual property, Trump said "we will no longer tolerate such abuse."
"We will not allow our workers to be victimized, our companies to be cheated," Trump said.
Stressing he still has "great respect and affection" for Chinese President Xi Jinping, Trump said "America will always act in our national interests."
