"We are not seeing the results in line with this investment".

The president urged the U.N.to focus "more on people and less on bureaucracy" and to change "business as usual and not be beholden to ways of the past which were not working".

Trump will participate in a forum on Monday with the U.N.'s senior leadership and the leaders of more than 120 other nations to discuss "Reforming the United Nations: Management, Security, and Development".

U.S. President Donald Trump criticized the United Nations for bloated bureaucracy and mismanagement on his first visit on Monday to U.N. headquarters, calling for "truly bold reforms" so it could be a greater force for world peace. "Such tremendous potential, and I think we'll be able to do this".

He is applauding efforts by the secretary general to reform the organization "so that it better serves the people we all represent". AP is the largest and most trusted source of independent news and information.

This project, the PM said , sets new records and new benchmarks. "But we were determined not to take make it a political battle". The World Bank, which had agreed to fund the project earlier, had also withdrawn later, citing environmental concerns.

Haley has made her mark also by fighting what she describes as United Nations anti-Israel bias, pushing for United Nations reform amid Trump's call to slash US funding, accusing Iran of meddling in the Middle East and challenging Russian Federation over Ukraine and its support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. His tone today was thus seen as an indication of the need for global support against North Korea after its latest round of nuclear tests.

The annual gathering of world leaders opens amid serious concerns about Trump's priorities.

In spite his skepticism about the value of worldwide organisations and the United Nations in particular, Trump will seek support for tough measures against North Korea, while pressing his "America First" message to the world body.

The U.S. has asked countries to sign on to a declaration supporting cutting bureaucracy and making the world body more efficient and nimble.

On Tuesday, Trump will address the General Assembly during which he will tackle multiple global issues such as North Korea's nuclear ambitions and the crisis in Syria.

Don't Understand Why Arsenal Can't Fight For Title - Antonio Conte
Cologne are now bottom of the Bundesliga table, having lost all three of their opening games in this season's German top flight. Last season, Arsenal beat Chelsea 3-0 at the beginning of the campaign at the Emirates Stadium, and that result proved pivotal.

He is expected, over the next several days, to stay at Trump Tower, where he plans to hold meetings with foreign leaders.

Mr. Trump may also face some uncomfortable moments over his sharp criticism of the Iran nuclear deal. Netanyahu, for his part, labeled it "a bad nuclear deal". As the US accelerates ISIS's fall on the battlefield, it must now confront a global challenge of what comes next in Iraq and Syria as other terror groups and Iran - which the USA calls the leading state sponsor of terrorism - jockey for position.

And with the expectations of many countries so low, Mr Gowan said, "if Mr Trump puts in a moderately normal performance, you will hear a lot of foreign ministers and ambassadors praising his newfound maturity".

Major European powers that support the pact have said it can not be renegotiated.

The president will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and French President Emmanuel Macron at the United Nations on Monday. He mused about ordering up a military parade down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington to rival the one he witnessed in Paris on Bastille Day. He also was having dinner with Latin American leaders. In 2016, he had threatened to reduce the United States' contribution to the UN peacekeeping fund. Mr Trump has said U.S. contributions to the UN's budgets are "unfair" and earlier this year proposed drastic cuts to its United Nations funding, including reducing its contribution to the peacekeeping budget by $1bn.
