Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., blasted President Donald Trump for using his first speech before the United Nations General Assembly "to threaten war" against North Korea.

"The goals of the United Nations are to foster peace and promote global cooperation," she said in a statement after Trump's speech Tuesday.

"Today, the president used it as a stage to threaten war."

In his speech, Trump called North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "rocket man," and said he is "on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime."

The president added, "The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea"

Trump "missed an opportunity to present any positive actions the U.N. could take with respect to North Korea, and he launched a diatribe against Iran, again offering no pathway forward," Feinstein said, also drawing on his remarks about the Iran nuclear deal, which he called an "embarrassment," and suggested that the U.S. would back out of the arrangement.

"By suggesting he would revisit and possibly cancel the Iran nuclear agreement, he greatly escalated the danger we face from both Iran and North Korea," she said. "What nation would negotiate with the United States when the agreements we reach with other countries are so easily undermined?

"Trump's bombastic threat to destroy North Korea and his refusal to present any positive pathways forward on the many global challenges we face are severe disappointments. He aims to unify the world through tactics of intimidation, but in reality, he only further isolates the United States."
