World Leaders Laugh at Trump’s Claims in United Nations Speech [VIDEO]

President Trump has long argued that the United States has been taken advantage of by other nations β€” a β€œlaughing stock to the entire World,” he said on Twitter in 2014 β€” and his political rise was based on the premise that he had the strength and resolve to change that.

But at the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, Trump got a comeuppance on the world’s biggest stage. Delivering a speech that aimed to establish U.S. β€œsovereignty” over the whims and needs of other nations, the president’s triumphant moment was marred in the first minute when he was met by laughter β€” at his expense.

The embarrassing exchange came when Trump boasted that his administration had accomplished more over two years than β€œalmost any administration” in American history, eliciting audible guffaws in the cavernous chamber hall.

The president appeared startled. β€œDidn’t expect that reaction,” he said, β€œbut that’s okay.”

Members of the audience chuckled again β€” perhaps this time in sympathy.
