Trump accuses Iran of ‘blood lust’ in U.N. speech but says there is path to peace

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday denounced Iran’s “blood lust” and called on other nations to join the United States to pressure Iran after attacks on Saudi oil facilities but said there is a path to peace. “We want partners, not adversaries,” Trump said in an address to the United Nations General Assembly annual gathering of world leaders. In his third annual appearance at the United Nations, Trump offered a more subdued tone compared to the bombast of his previous speeches to the U.N. in 2017 and 2018, looking to convey a more reassuring presence as he asks Americans for a second term next year despite a fresh push for his impeachment among some Democrats.
