In his 40-odd minutes at the podium at the UN general assembly today (Sept. 19), US president Donald Trump threatened North Korea, railed at Iran and warned Venezuela. And that wasn’t all.

Trump brought up more than half a dozen countries in his speech, treating them with differing levels of affection and vitriol. Quartz scanned the full text of his speech to pick out the choicest bits.
