President Trump will deliver his first speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, facing leaders from 193 countries around the world. Here are those leaders' questions about the new American president, per NYT's Peter Baker:

  1. How will Trump's 'America First' strategy measure up to the UN's 'world first' agenda? "The perception ... is that President Trump is unilateralist and isolationist. Trump has the opportunity to present and describe his vision and strategy. The world will be all ears," Zalmay Khalilzad, UN ambassador under President Bush, told the Times.
  2. How will the president address the North Korean threat? Some countries "fear that the fighting talk of this impulsive president could make things worse rather than better," Peter Westmacott, a former British ambassador, said.
  3. How will Trump tackle UN reform? The president, along with prominent Republicans, has been vocal about inefficiency at the UN. He's got a meeting on UN reform Monday.

Ex-FDA chief: Pence campaigning after COVID exposure puts others at risk

Former FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb said "the short answer is yes" when asked whether Vice President Mike Pence is putting others at risk by continuing to campaign after several aides tested positive for COVID-19, stressing that the White House needs to be "very explicit about the risks that they're taking."

Why it matters: The New York Times reports that at least five members of Pence's inner circle, including his chief of staff Marc Short and outside adviser Marty Obst, have tested positive for the virus. Pence tested negative on Sunday morning, according to the VP's office, and he'll continue to travel for the final stretch of the 2020 campaign.
