U.S. President Donald Trump has for the first time held a speech before the General Assembly at the United Nations headquarters in New York on Monday. Sitting between General Secretary António Guterres and Trump's ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, the President cautioned the intergovernmental organization founded in 1945 has "not reached its full potential" because of its bloated bureaucracy and "mismanagement".
