President Trump is receiving applause for his strong words at the United Nations Tuesday morning from foreign allies and Republicans alike.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who met with the president at the UN on Monday afternoon, is praising Trump's speech as the most courageous he's seen in 30 years.

In addition to meeting with Trump, Netanyahu also met with Egyptian President Abdel el-Sisi and a number of other world leaders. The meeting with el-Sisi was especially notable given the complicated politics of the Middle East.
