All nations of the world must resist socialism and communism, the US President Donald Trump said on September 25 speaking at the UN General Assembly, RIA Novosti reported.
“Virtually everywhere socialism or communism has been tried, it has produced suffering, corruption, and decay. Socialism’s thirst for power leads to expansion, incursion, and oppression. All nations of the world should resist socialism and the misery that it brings to everyone,” Trump said.
As an example of the misery brought by socialism, Trump depicted the situation in Venezuela. “[In Venezuela,] more than 2 million people have fled the anguish inflicted by the socialist [Nicolás] Maduro regime and its Cuban sponsors. Not long ago, Venezuela was one of the richest countries on Earth. Today, socialism has bankrupted the oil-rich nation and driven its people into abject poverty,” the US president said. This is why, Trump added, the US imposed further sanctions against the Venezuelan authorities.
On September 25, the 73rd UN General Assembly Session took place.
