And here we go. I’ll be sharing my #UNGA2018 predictions on this thread : 1) expect @realDonaldTrump to defile the body
2) it’s all about the Benjamins but more money more problems — Bc @realDonaldTrump thinks we pay too much for everything and get nothing in return. Btw @UN contributions are determined by a specific formula related to GNI and per capita income ...
3) .@UN #UNGA is kicking off. @antonioguterres has "a commitment to increase transparency on the reporting of sexual exploitation and abuse within the UN." Wonder what he would say about DT's tweet saying victims always speak up or they weren't attacked…

For the last 24 hours I've been texting & calling with refugees in Libya. 500 are apparently stuck in a Tripoli prison w/o food & water after heavy fighting broke out two days ago. They say their guards ran away, leaving them alone.
These refugees are men, women & children. They tried to cross the Mediterranean earlier this year, but were found by Italian boats, who turned them over to the EU-backed Libyan coastguard, who put them in prison. The conditions were already terrible before the fighting started.
Oh the phone earlier I could hear children crying & what sounded like bombing in the distance. The refugees say everyone's incredibly frightened. "We hear machine guns, tanks, big bombs, last night from the roof it was all fire."
