President Donald Trump has vowed to bring back the Cold War era, a day after the president was accused of using “fake news” during his address to Congress.
The president said he wants to “restore the honor and the prestige of the United Nations” and “to bring back some sense of trust and cooperation between our two nations.”
“We need to make sure that the United Kingdom and the United State remain friends,” he said, referring to Britain and the U.S. “we need to take care of our friends in the world, especially the United Arab Emirates.”
Trump is set to host a private event with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the White House later in the day.
The two leaders will be joined by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
The White House also released a statement saying Trump is set for a meeting with Japanese Prime Minster Shinzo Abe in the Oval Office on Thursday.
The statement said Trump “will have the opportunity to engage with the Prime Minister of Japan, and will also have the chance to engage directly with the leaders of our two closest allies in the region, China and Russia, who are leading the fight against radical Islamic terrorism.”
It said the meeting will also address “the United States’ ongoing involvement in Afghanistan, the ongoing war in Syria, the current threats to the American people, and the need to counter Iran’s influence over the region.”
