President Trump told ambassadors from countries on the United Nations Security Council Monday that they were going to be busy tackling problems that the U.N. typically avoids addressing.
“You’re going to be very busy people over the coming months and years,” Mr. Trump said at the opening of a working lunch with the ambassadors at the White House.
“The United Nations doesn’t like taking on certain problems,” he continued, citing the Syrian regimes use of chemical weapons against its people. “I encourage the Security Council to come together to take action on all of these many threats.”
The president also spoke of the rising tensions with North Korea, calling the reclusive communist country “a real threat to the world.”
