If you missed it yesterday, United States President Donald Trump addressed the UN with a speech in which he threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea.

The White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, Trump's top adviser, was photographed with his head in his hands during said speech.

Trump told the crowd of world leaders and diplomats assembled:

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.

Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime.

The Swedish minister for Foreign Affairs, Margot Wallström, who is currently the president of the United Nations, shared her reaction to the speech with BBC correspondent Bahman Kalbasi.

She was anything but friendly about the language Trump used.

It was the wrong speech, at the wrong time, to the wrong audience.

For a handy reference point of how nations reacted around the world, see CNN's close shots of the diplomats in attendance.

Trump derided the UN on the campaign trail and now needs support of other world leaders to maintain pressure and sanctions on North Korea.

At least Netanyahu liked it:
