Busy Week for U.S. at U.N. 

The week of September 23 is a busy one for the U.S. at the U.N. in New York City.

On Monday (September 23), the U.N. held a Climate Change Summit that the U.S. chose not to attend (except for a few minutes non-speaking attendance by President Trump). Instead, the U.S. hosted the Global Call To Protect Religious Freedom at the U.N. with appearances by President Trump, Vice President Pence and Secretary of State Pompeo.

Also on September 23 the U.S. Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, Alex Azar, addressed another U.N. meeting on universal health care with perhaps the most signficant comments of the day.

On Tuesday (September 24) President Trump made a major speech to the U.N. General Assembly.

Subsequent posts will examine each of these events. (If anyone knows of other major U.S.-U.N. events this week, please identify them in a comment to this post.)
