After sending Tweets about Rocketman and others, @POTUS has made his first statement as president at the United Nations and returns to the UN this morning for his first address to the 193-members of the world body's general assembly. However, the leaders of China and Russia are not expected there.

While tensions increase with North Korea, with a new terrorist attack in London and renewed efforts to bring peace to the Middle East, Trump will have plenty of topics to choose from for his speech, which is expected to be more than 140 long.

What will he say about the UN? During Monday's special forum, Trump riffed off his 2016 presidential campaign slogan: "I think the main message is ‘Make the United Nations Great' – not 'Again'.
