The United Nations has been a thorn in the side of President Trump for a long time.
And Trump’s recent decision to move Israel’s U.S. embassy to Jerusalem has made things much worse.
But one thing Trump just did is sure to make the U.N. regret attacking him.
Following President Trump’s decision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, the United Nations lost their minds.
They quickly voted to undermine President Trump’s decision, which made Trump furious.
He was angry enough that he threatened to cut U.S. funding to the United Nations.
As reported by The Blaze:
“President Donald Trump issued a very clear threat against the United Nations Wednesday, saying that the United States was not going to continue funding an entity that keeps voting against our interests.
“I like the message that Nikki [Haley] sent yesterday at the United Nations,” the president said, “for all those nations that take our money and then they vote against us at the Security Council, or they vote against us potentially at the assembly.
“They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars, and then they vote against us. Well, we’re watching those votes. Let them vote against us. We’ll save a lot. We don’t care,” Trump said.
“But this isn’t like it used to be where they could vote against you and then you pay them hundreds of millions of dollars and nobody knows what they’re doing,” he added.
“People are tired of the United States,” he concluded, “being taken advantage of and we’re not going to be taken advantage of any longer.”
Trump made the comments to reporters Wednesday while Secretary of State Rex Tillerson sat beside him at the White House.”
As it turns out, President Trump’s threat wasn’t just empty words.
Just days after threatening to remove funding from the U.N., Ambassador Nikki Haley announced massive cuts in funding to the United Nations.
The cut in U.N. funding from the United States will remove over $283 million in funding, and was announced citing the inefficiency and overspending of the U.N.
As reported by Yahoo News:
“The U.S. government says it has negotiated a significant cut in the United Nations budget.
The U.S. Mission to the United Nations said on Sunday that the U.N.’s 2018-2019 budget would be slashed by over $285 million. The mission said reductions would also be made to the U.N.’s management and support functions.
The announcement didn’t make clear the entire amount of the budget or specify what effect the cut would have on the U.S. contribution.
U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said that the “inefficiency and overspending” of the organization is well-known, and she would not let “the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of.”
President Trump clearly isn’t messing around.
The United Nations has attempted to undermine him while ignoring the fact that the United States is their largest funder.
Many believe the United Nations do not serve the interests of U.S. and only serve to support the globalist interests of many world leaders.
For that reason, many are calling for the U.S. to leave the United Nations.
Do you think President Trump should leave the U.N. altogether?
