Both speeches worth watching in their entirety.
Trump the Nationalist “Putting America First” as he promised.
Ardern promoting, essentially, a Globalist message, yet embracing Te Reo and NZ pragmatism. (And she didn’t join in the laughter at Trump’s opening remarks).
A real contrast and both speeches valid and impressive (whether you agree with them or not).
Without further ado I’ll let these leaders do the talking:
The leader who DIDN’T laugh at Trump during his United nations speech
While most world leaders erupted into laughter as Donald Trump made his opening remarks at the United Nations, one woman remained stern.
New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern did not react as Trump claimed that ‘in less than two years my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.’
Ms Adern said she did not laugh as she was listening to the words being spoken, the New Zealand Herald reported.
