"We reject the ideology of globalism and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism", the president said during wide-ranging remarks that began with a stump-speech like recitation of his domestic accomplishments, included an announcement of new sanctions against Venezuela, and covered his reasons for pulling the USA out of the U.N. Human Rights Council and its global compact on migration.

"They do not respect their neighbors or borders or the sovereign rights of nations". "We are standing up for America and the American people, and we are also standing up for the world", he said.

"Ladies and gentlemen, unlawful and unilateral sanctions in themselves constitute a form of global terrorism", he said, accusing the USA of starting "an economic war" against his country and Trump of "bullying" Iranian leaders.
