Donald Trump continues his campaign on total annihilation of North Korea, and he is letting the world know his stance during his speech at the UN assembly in New York. 

The US president calling the North Korea, Kim Jong-Un a "rocket man" and will have no choice but destroy North Korea if the country forces the United States" to defend itself or its allies. Trump has decided to come up with the new threats after several sanctions asking to slow down the nuclear weapon program, but the sanctions according to North Korea will only speed up its nuclear program.

                      

Watch Donald Trump speech here:

                

The speech did not end with North Korea, but the President went ahead to attack other nations, and US enemies. Other countries attacked by Donald Trump include Iran, Venezuela. The North Korea ambassador left his seat before Trump walks in, leaving a junior associates to listen to the rambling speech of the US president.

The speech against Iran, raised the eyebrows of the country's ambassador. Trump called the country's leader, "corrupt dictatorship," he said;

The Iranian government masks a corrupt dictatorship behind the false guise of a democracy,It has turned a wealthy country, with a rich history and culture, into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violent, bloodshed and chaos.

It is time for the entire world to join us in demanding that Iran's government end its pursuit of death and destruction.

    

 

Iran ambassador raised his eyebrows when the president described his country leaders as 'corrupt dictatorship' 

 

 

Trump also attacked Venezuela, and condemned the current regime for the economic collapse and violent clashes between the government forces and the government, and the overtake of its parliament so that it could gain control of the government. 

Trump said in his speech;

The socialist dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro has inflicted terrible pain and suffering on the good people of that country. 

This corrupt regime destroyed a prosperous nation -- prosperous nation, by imposing a failed ideology that has produced poverty and misery everywhere it has been tried. To make matters worse, Maduro has defied his own people, stealing power from their elected representatives, to preserve his disastrous rule. The Venezuelan people are starving and their country is collapsing.

The faces on the diplomats of the countries attacked can be seen, as they remain stone faced, and shows great anger for the attack on their countries by the US president Donald Trump.

The speech,though got a positive feedback from Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who was seen clapping and nodding is head when Trump attacked the Iran nuclear deal, calling it the worst deal made by the US, and slammed former President Barack Obama, while calling the deal  “an embarrassment.”

The Saudi diplomats can also be seen with smiles with the slamming of Iran by the US president, as both countries are currently locked in war as they battle the control of the middle east.

North Korea once again is not backing out on its development of its missile test, after the country tested its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on early Sunday. The country has also called the latest test a "perfect success" of unprecedented "strength"

The US Geological Survey recorded a 6.3 magnitude earthquake at a depth of 0.0 km, and indicator that Kim Jong Un military might have conducted a nuclear test.

                       

The bomb that was tested by the North is more powerful than the bombs the US drops on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, and the impact of the test was felt both in the North and South Korea. The Hydrogen bombs tested are more powerful than atomic bombs, and even though analysts have been sceptical of the claims by North Korea of having a hydrogen bomb, the blast that was heard today was more powerful than anything the North had previously detonated.

Speaking after the missile test, Donald Trump took to his Twitter account to respond, writing;

          

South Korea President Moon Jae-in during the campaign has said he is looking to talk North Korea instead of going to war with its neighbours as much of the South Korea population is within the range of North Korea artillery.

And also responding to Trump's comment on "appeasement," President Moon Jae-In office said that it is working with Washington to exert “maximum sanctions and pressure.” And also make its stance known that the reason for the sanctions is only to bring North Korea to the negotiating table again.

The tremor received in South Korea resulted in the South’s National Fire Agency, which operates an emergency hotline, that it received around 31 phone calls from people that reported about ground and building shakings.

World leaders have condemned the latest missile test by North Korea. The Russian Foreign Ministry in Europe said that the rogue state "deserves absolute condemnation." The office of the German chancellor, Angela Merkel and President Emmanuel Macron of France both released a statement that said "the most recent provocation from Pyongyang reaches a new dimension."

The US President Donald Trump is donating $1million from his own fortune to the Hurricane Harvey relief fund. The president is yet to determine the group to give the money to, but he is soliciting from the media worthy groups to give the money.

                     

According to press secretary Sarah Sanders;

He would like to join in the efforts that a lot of people we have seen across the country do. "He'll pledge, proudly, $1 million of his own personal money to help the people of Texas and Louisiana."

He would like to join in the efforts that a lot of people we have seen across the country do.He'll pledge, proudly, $1 million of his own personal money to help the people of Texas and Louisiana. He actually asked that I check with the folks in this room since you are very good at research and have been doing a lot of reporting into the groups and organizations that are best and most effective in helping and providing aid, and he'd like some suggestions from the folks here and I'd be happy to take those

The president has also asked that his supporters donate to the effort in the Harvey disaster. He asked that they donates to the groups involved in the Texas recovery effort. There are some trustworthy groups currently helping with the relief of the Hurricane Harvey, as we listed here.

When asked about whether the money will come directly from President Trump own bank account or Trump's organization, Sanders said she is not sure from where the money will be coming from, but she knows it's the president own's money.

Trump in the past had come under scrutiny from reporters after promising to donate but not following true on his words. One of those was a promise he made to veterans during his presidential campaign, but nothing happened until he was called into question by reporters.

In March, President Trump announced to reporters that he will be donating his Presidential salary to an organization, and also his former press secretary, Sean Spicer asked reporters for suggestions to where to make good on the donations. Since then, Donald Trump has donated his salary to the National Park Service and the Department of Education.

Here are list of celebrities that pledged and donated to the Harvey relief fund;

Sandra Bullock: $1 million to the American Red Cross  

Leonardo DiCaprio: $1 million to the new United Way Harvey Recovery Fund

Miley Cyrus: $500,000 to the American Red Cross, Best Friends, the Greater Houston Community Fund and other charities

James Fields, 20 years old man from Ohio is currently charged with murder and in police custody after he rammed a car into counter-protesters peacefully protesting at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing one person and injuring another 19.

              

The police have confirmed that James ramming the vehicle into the crowds has killed a 32 year old woman, but the police are trying to get more details before talking to her family.

Col Martin Kumer, the superintendent of the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail while speaking about the incident said;

He has been charged with second degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding and failing to stop at an accident that resulted in a death.

The FBI has also got involved in the accident in Charlottesville and have opened a civil rights investigation along with the Justice Department’s civil rights division and the district attorney’s office.

The mother of the alleged murderer while speaking to Associated Press on Saturday night said she knew her child was attending a rally that has to do with the US president, Donald Trump, and she never thought he was attending a white supremacist rally. She said;

I thought it had something to do with Trump. Trump’s not a white supremacist.

The attack happened after the police had cleared the Emancipation Park where there is the statue Robert E Lee, the statue that the city decided to be removed, and have since drawn attention from the alt-right groups and the Ku Klux Klan..

After a good fight between the far-right and counter protesters, there was a stalemate, and the far-right groups, then moved to another park 2 miles away from the park of the riot to attend the “Unite the Right” event that they had scheduled before the counter protest.

The speaker was the Far-right and White Nationalist leader, Richard Spencer, who said that the group will not back down on protesting against the statue removal by the city.

Robert E Lee Statue Controversy

The city of Charlottesville in February voted to remove the Robert E Lee statue from the park, and also rename the park to Emancipation Park, this was after a campaign by local high school student, Zyahna Bryant. 

This also started after a White supremacist, Dylann Roof murdered nine African Americans in a church in Charleston, South Carolina.

 It was said that confederate flags and monuments across the South be removed after the massacre by Dylan Roof,and after the city voted for the Robert Lee status be removed, White Nationalist leader, Richard Spencer led a torchlight parade around the park, and on 8 of July, around 50 members of the Ku Klux Klan held another rally at the park.

The KKK during their rally at the park were met with resistance from protesters, and police intervened, arresting 23 people.

President Donald Trump Stance

The president has come under attack after his speech, where he said that the country must stay united, as there has been "display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides.”. 

             

The president use of the "many sides" have caused an uproar both from Republicans and Democrats at the congress that believes the president should have called out the word "White supremacist" and condemn the group, instead of trying to cast a wide net on the protest.

                   

One Republican going against Trump is Marco Rubio, tweeting that the president should describe the events as a “terror attack by white supremacists”.

The recent GOP health care bill has unmuted former President Barack Obama, who before now has not commented on the Donald Trump presidency, or any of Trump previous allegations. The reason Obama is coming out now is to speak against the current released GOP health care bill.

Barack Obama and Donald Trump disagree over the cost and insurance rates of the new health care bill for Americans. This also includes argument over the world mean.

                      

In a long Facebook post by Obama, the rushed-through Republican health care bill "would raise costs, reduce coverage, roll back protections, and ruin Medicaid as we know it," he then added "Small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation."

Trump during his interview with his favourite TV cable network, Fox and friends, confirmed that he also denounces the GOP health care bill, and said he had told that "I want to see a (health care) bill with heart."

According to Trump's secretary of Health and Human Services, Tom Price while speaking to CNN, said that the goal of the new Trumpcare goal is to decrease premiums, even though few republicans believes this is not feasible under their new proposed plan.

Read Obama write up here;

Our politics are divided. They have been for a long time. And while I know that division makes it difficult to listen to Americans with whom we disagree, that’s what we need to do today.

I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party. Still, I hope that our Senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did.

We didn’t fight for the Affordable Care Act for more than a year in the public square for any personal or political gain – we fought for it because we knew it would save lives, prevent financial misery, and ultimately set this country we love on a better, healthier course.

Nor did we fight for it alone. Thousands upon thousands of Americans, including Republicans, threw themselves into that collective effort, not for political reasons, but for intensely personal ones – a sick child, a parent lost to cancer, the memory of medical bills that threatened to derail their dreams.

And you made a difference. For the first time, more than ninety percent of Americans know the security of health insurance. Health care costs, while still rising, have been rising at the slowest pace in fifty years. Women can’t be charged more for their insurance, young adults can stay on their parents’ plan until they turn 26, contraceptive care and preventive care are now free. Paying more, or being denied insurance altogether due to a preexisting condition – we made that a thing of the past.

We did these things together. So many of you made that change possible.

At the same time, I was careful to say again and again that while the Affordable Care Act represented a significant step forward for America, it was not perfect, nor could it be the end of our efforts – and that if Republicans could put together a plan that is demonstrably better than the improvements we made to our health care system, that covers as many people at less cost, I would gladly and publicly support it.

That remains true. So I still hope that there are enough Republicans in Congress who remember that public service is not about sport or notching a political win, that there’s a reason we all chose to serve in the first place, and that hopefully, it’s to make people’s lives better, not worse.

But right now, after eight years, the legislation rushed through the House and the Senate without public hearings or debate would do the opposite. It would raise costs, reduce coverage, roll back protections, and ruin Medicaid as we know it. That’s not my opinion, but rather the conclusion of all objective analyses, from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, which found that 23 million Americans would lose insurance, to America’s doctors, nurses, and hospitals on the front lines of our health care system.

The Senate bill, unveiled today, is not a health care bill. It’s a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America. It hands enormous tax cuts to the rich and to the drug and insurance industries, paid for by cutting health care for everybody else. Those with private insurance will experience higher premiums and higher deductibles, with lower tax credits to help working families cover the costs, even as their plans might no longer cover pregnancy, mental health care, or expensive prescriptions. Discrimination based on pre-existing conditions could become the norm again. Millions of families will lose coverage entirely.

Simply put, if there’s a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family – this bill will do you harm. And small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation.

I hope our Senators ask themselves – what will happen to the Americans grappling with opioid addiction who suddenly lose their coverage? What will happen to pregnant mothers, children with disabilities, poor adults and seniors who need long-term care once they can no longer count on Medicaid? What will happen if you have a medical emergency when insurance companies are once again allowed to exclude the benefits you need, send you unlimited bills, or set unaffordable deductibles? What impossible choices will working parents be forced to make if their child’s cancer treatment costs them more than their life savings?

To put the American people through that pain – while giving billionaires and corporations a massive tax cut in return – that’s tough to fathom. But it’s what’s at stake right now. So it remains my fervent hope that we step back and try to deliver on what the American people need.

That might take some time and compromise between Democrats and Republicans. But I believe that’s what people want to see. I believe it would demonstrate the kind of leadership that appeals to Americans across party lines. And I believe that it’s possible – if you are willing to make a difference again. If you’re willing to call your members of Congress. If you are willing to visit their offices. If you are willing to speak out, let them and the country know, in very real terms, what this means for you and your family.

After all, this debate has always been about something bigger than politics. It’s about the character of our country – who we are, and who we aspire to be. And that’s always worth fighting for.
