Trump heads to UN with long list of deals he’s yet to close
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump heads to the United Nations this coming week saddled with a long list of unresolved foreign policy deals he’s yet to close.
There are challenges with Iran, North Korea, the Afghan Taliban, Israel and the Palestinians — not to mention a number of trade pacts.
Trump says he’s in “no rush” to wrap up the deals. But negotiations take time and the 2020 election is looming.
Some foreign policy experts give Trump credit for opening up international negotiations. They also criticize his brash negotiating style and go-it-alone approach to solving problems.
Trump defends his approach. But as tensions escalate between the United States and Iran, Trump will be seeking support from other nations at the U.N. General Assembly.
