ABC's Terry Moran said President Trump's threat to destroy North Korea during his first address to the United Nations General Assembly "borders on the threat of committing a war crime" in a post-speech analysis on the network Tuesday.

“Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime,” Trump said in his remarks to world leaders and ambassadors.

“No nation on Earth has an interest in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles,” he continued.

“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.”

Moran, who serves as ABC's chief foreign correspondent, provided his perspective to anchor George Stephanopoulos as ABC cut into regular programming for a special report.
