Congressman David Price Issues Statement on President Trump's UNGA Speech

September 19, 2017
Press Release

Washington - Congressman David E. Price (NC-04) issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s address to the United Nations General Assembly. Congressman Price serves on the State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Subcommittee.

“President Trump’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly served only to further alienate the United States from its allies, and to sow doubts among our adversaries and rivals as to our steadfastness and resolve. In an incoherent series of brash threats, the President called on the international community to ‘totally destroy’ a nuclear-armed North Korea, while undermining the international effort to restrain Iran’s nuclear program. Furthermore, the President failed even to mention serious concerns like climate change, cyber-warfare, and heightened tensions with Russia. The President’s hypocritical threats and childish name-calling do nothing to advance American interests or project American strength.  Instead, they send a clear signal of incoherence and incompetence.”
