128 nations sign US Declaration on reform of United Nations

United States President Donald Trump center gets up to leave after making a quick statement at a meeting during the United Nations General Assembly at U.N. headquarters Monday Sept. 18 2017

US President Donald Trump yesterday criticised the United Nations for bloated bureaucracy and mismanagement on his first visit to UN headquarters, calling for "truly bold reforms" so it could be a greater force for world peace. Addressing a meeting on United Nations reforms a day ahead of his address at the General Assembly, President Trump said he encouraged member states to strike out for change and not hold onto past systems that were not working. It's not just about talking.

Trump national security adviser H.R. McMaster told Fox News Sunday that a military option is very much on the table in dealing with possible threats from the country. World leaders gathered for the 70th session of the annual meeting.

Mr Trump may steal the limelight at this year's General Assembly in the absence of other key world leaders, including Russian president Vladimir Putin, Chinese president Xi Jinping and German chancellor Angela Merkel. The blunter he is, the better chance the world might avoid another war.

"Make the United Nations great".

The tightly choreographed weeklong event also poses a unique challenge to Mr. Trump, who has a propensity for going off script and delights in upsetting convention.

"But I know that under the secretary-general, that's changing and it's changing fast". "Hard to imagine him being scripted for the whole week".

The US President has criticised the bureaucracy and the financial burden that United Nations membership imposes on the US, and said it needs to be "better" at development, management, peace and security.

US President Donald Trump made his United Nations debut.

His fellow leaders here at the annual gathering here of more than 150 delegations are listening for signs of how closely Trump will align himself with the U.N.in the face of a series of global challenges, including North Korea, Syria and Iran.

Trump has also been critical of the United Nations and has promised to cut the USA contribution to its budget, which is the largest.

- In a speech at the AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington in March 2016, Trump took on what he described as "the utter weakness and incompetence of the United Nations".

Tillerson also hinted at the possibility of sticking with the Paris Climate agreement, saying the president remains-quote- "open to finding those conditions where we can remain engaged". "That's a miraculous number".

Mr Trump on Monday will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, French President Emmanuel Macron of France and in the evening attend a working dinner with Latin American leaders.

On Tuesday, Mr. Trump will deliver his first address to the assembly.

"And we've seen it", he said.

"It is a new day at the United Nations".

"He will urge all states to come together to address grave dangers that threaten us all".

"I don't think the US Senate will agree to most of the cuts he proposed".

Haley praised UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres for making reforms, one of which whistleblower protection.

He is slated to meet with the Palestinians in the coming days.

The final day of the assembly Thursday will include meetings with leaders of Turkey, Afghanistan and Ukraine.

"The two leaders committed to maximizing pressure on North Korea through vigorous enforcement of United Nations Security Council resolutions". The North tested ballistic missiles and a nuclear weapon in the face of global sanctions. But he has softened his tone since taking office, telling ambassadors from UN Security Council member countries at a White House meeting that the UN has "tremendous potential".

India has been making a strong bid for a permanent seat in an expanded Security Council, which now has five permanent members - China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the US.

Asked if the USA would stay in that deal, Trumped answered only "you'll see very soon".
