US President Donald Trump used a speech before the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday to accuse the International Criminal Court of lacking any legitimacy, saying it violated "all principles of justice".
"As far as America is concerned, the ICC has no jurisdiction, no legitimacy, and no authority," Trump said of the world court.
"The ICC claims near-universal jurisdiction over the citizens of every country, violating all principles of justice, fairness, and due process. We will never surrender America's sovereignty to an unelected, unaccountable global bureaucracy."
