President Donald Trump will address the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday with topics such as North Korea’s nuclear program, terrorism, and reform of the U.N. itself likely included in the speech.

In brief remarks Trump made at the UN on Monday, he vowed the United States will be “partners in your work” while at the same time took the body to task saying, “We are not seeing the results in line with this investment."

Also on Monday, Trump called up an altered version of his campaign slogan when he promised to “make the United Nations great” - not ”again.” “Make the United Nations great.”
