Trump delivers fascist tirade at United Nations – World Socialist Web Site

Since taking office in 2017, US President Donald Trump has used his annual speech at the UN General Assembly to denounce socialism, promote nationalism and xenophobia, and bully and threaten the whole world.

With his third address to the UN General Assembly, Trump escalated his fascistic rhetoric. He openly echoed the tropes of the neo-Nazi right, declaring that “globalists” want to “replace” national identity, while falsely declaring that “socialism and communism” had resulted in the deaths of 100 million people—more than the number killed by Nazi Germany.

At the same time, Trump bullied, cajoled, and threatened virtually every country represented in the UN, vowing to escalate his trade war with China and intensify US economic blockades against Iran and Venezuela, while demanding that America’s “allies” contribute more toward military protection.
