President Donald Trump’s Address To United Nations General Assembly

“America is governed by Americans,” said President Trump in the high profile speech at the United Nations, “We reject the ideology of globalism and accept the doctrine of patriotism.”  He talked of America’s security concerns, these are with North Korea and Kim Jong Un.  Earlier this year the two leaders met in Singapore to bring denuclearization to the Korean Peninsula.  Trump’s other security issues are tensions with Iran and trade war with China.  He stated he had done more in his two years in office than any other administration In the history of the United States of America.

He listed his achievements as a booming economy, creating jobs and wealth, adding to manufacturing jobs, making a better life for all citizens, biggest tax cuts and reform and securing funds for the military.  He has also forged close relationship with many countries.

When Politicians Bring Their Kids To Work

Yesterday New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made history as the first world leader to have her new born baby at a United Nations General Assembly in New York. Her partner Clarke Gayford held baby Neve Te Aroha.

Before this other politicians have taken their child to work too.  India’s Priyanka Vadra took her son Raihan to the Parliament as did Misa Bharti.

Japan’s Yuka Ogata had her seven- month- old Dogen with her in solidarity with Japanese mother’s who are struggling raising their children, so she was not surprised when male colleagues asked her to leave.

Swedish Member European  Parliament (MEP) Jytte Guteland brought her baby to a vote at the European Parliament to normalise a ‘child-friendly’ workplace.  Sometimes parents need to do this when necessary was Guteland’s opinion.

2009 may be the first time a baby was in the European Parliament.  Hanne Dahl’s husband couldn’t be in Brussels so she took her baby to work.

In a maternal gesture Italy’s MEP also took daughter Vittoria to work in 2010. It caused a stir so she decided this was a subject that needed discussing.

Austrian Senator Larisssa Waters made history when she breastfed her two-month- old daughter in Parliament and she posted a photograph on Twitter to say how proud she was.
