Trump's audience first reacted to the statement with muted laughs, prompting the president himself to follow up with levity, as well.

Trump and Moon later made the announcement at hte United Nations and held a signing ceremony.

"OPEC and OPEC nations are as usual ripping off the rest of the world", Trump said.

Taken aback and grinning like a schoolboy caught boasting about his romantic conquests, Trump added, "I didn't expect that reaction but it's okay".

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had said the president would have "strong words" for Iran's leadership. They do not respect their neighbours or borders, or the sovereign rights of nations.

President Donald Trump claimed his administration is one of the most accomplished in USA history during a speech Tuesday at the United Nations General Assembly ― and the audience's reaction caught him off guard.

Early reports Saturday described the assailants as "Takifiri gunmen", a term previously used to describe the Islamic State group . Nine of those killed are reported to be members of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corp, the semi-official ISNA news agency said.

Bolton's comments came the same day that President Donald Trump characterized Iran as instigating "chaos, death and destruction" in an address to the United Nations.

Trump blasted what he called the "corrupt dictatorship" of Iran and accused the government in Tehran of spreading "mayhem" across the Middle East and around the world.

Shortly after Trump's speech, the Iranian president Hassan Rouhani at his UNGA speech is expected to respond to United States administration's false accusations against Iran and highlight the U.S. illegal actions in withdrawing from worldwide agreements and ignoring global obligations.

Trump told reporters later on Tuesday that the speech had "gotten very good reviews, certainly, and I think it went very well".

"Only when each of us does our part and contributes our share can we realize the UN's highest aspirations", Trump said.

Elsewhere in that same speech, Trump claims that the stock market "is at an all time high in history", offered some praise towards Kim-Jong Un, and denounces "the bloodthirsty killers known as ISIS" and "radical Islamic terrorists".
