"Those days are over". "We will not allow our workers to be victimized, our companies to be cheated, and our wealth to be plundered and transferred".

Russian Federation was also a topic of the president's speech, including Moscow's sale of S-300 missiles to Syria.

Trump, who has warm relations with Iranian rivals Saudi Arabia and Israel, has pulled the United States out of an global agreement to constrict Iran's nuclear program and instead has restored sanctions.

Trump also said any solution for Syria must include a deal with Iran, adding that the US will respond if chemical weapons are deployed by the Assad regime. "We reject the ideology of globalism and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism".

The Trump remarks and crowd reaction drew pointed commentary on Twitter, with some ridiculing Trump's assertion.

US President Donald Trump's speech at the UN General Assembly got off to an unusual start when world leaders and diplomats laughed at his claim that his administration has accomplished more than any other in US history.
