This will be Rouhani's first speech at the General Assembly, as he was just inaugurated as Iran's president in August. But his short tenure will not prevent a contingent of Iranian-Americans from gathering in protest outside the UN building, where former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Former UN Ambassador John Bolton, and former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele are expected to speak.
