US President Donald Trump has said that the United Nations is not living up to its potential because of bureaucracy and mismanagement.

In his first speech at the UN in New York, he said: "Focus more on people, less on bureaucracy."

Trump, who has criticised what he sees as a disproportionate contribution by the US, said the UN could become stronger if all worked together.

The US funds 22% of the UN's regular budget and 28% of UN peacekeeping.

President Trump is due to deliver a longer speech when he addresses the UN General Assembly for the first time.

He is expected to call for a harder line on North Korea and Iran.
