Trump Cutting U.N. Budget

Timothy Birdnow

Donald Trump is making good on his threat and exploring ways to cut funding to the United Nations.

After the U.N. issued a condemnation of the United States for announcing a move of the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, U.N. Ambassador Nicki Haley threatened the kleptocrats at the U.N. that a new sheriff is in town and the Trump Administration was not going to put up with this sort of thing. Well..

From Right Wing News:

"Days after Haley delivered her warning, we are now seeing the federal government of the United States (which pays 1/5th of the entire UN budget) slash nearly $285M from the $1.2B we spend with them.

The US had looked into increasing the efficiency of the UN at the same time "while protecting our interests” according to the Washington Post.

[...]

"his new budget "reduced the UN’s bloated management and support functions, bolstered support for key U.S. priorities throughout the world, and instilled more discipline and accountability throughout the U.N system,” reads a statement from Nikki Haley’s office."

End excerpts.

The U.N. is almost universally anti-American, refusing to support us on almost every occasion. Yet we pay most of the cost (or rather China does via the loans they make the U.S. to pay them). It's past time we let this corrupt body die, and that will happen if we just stop enabling it with our cash and our arms.
