Trump: UN 'just a club for people to get together, talk'

President-elect Donald Trump criticized the United Nations on Monday, claiming it has "such great potential" that it's not meeting. 

In a Monday afternoon tweet, Trump said the U.N. "is just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time."

Trump has already implied he will bring change to the U.N. once he's president. In a tweet last week, Trump warned that "things will be different" for the U.N. after he's sworn into office.

His comments come on the heels the U.N. Security Council's contentious 14-0 vote Friday to pass a resolution demanding an end to Israeli settlement building in occupied territories.

Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pressured the Obama administration to veto the resolution, but the U.S. abstained from the vote, allowing the resolution to pass.

Israel’s ambassador to the United States told CNN on Monday that the country has "evidence" that the Obama administration colluded with the Security Council to pass the resolution.

He said officials plan to share the evidence with the president-elect.

Please get out of the UN and no more funding...this horrible thing must die

 No Donald the UN is a corrupt  little club of socialiest .commie run dictator ships and a vast majority of Muslims now that Hate the United States with a Passion and would love nothing more than to see  us reduced to a 3rd world inslaved NWO state. their is no potential their at all . defund and throw the basterds Out of the U.S.A.

The whole World is coming apart!!!!

The name "United Nations" is a contradiction. There is no unity among any of the countries in this organization except the ones that would like to destroy America, Israel and  other freedom loving countries of the world. I think we should not only get out but invite them to move their headquarters to some other socialist/communist country such as Cuba.

Cuba is still too close to the USA. Get it FAAAAAR away so when OWEbama becomes Sec Genl of it, he won't be in this country. How about Kenya - the land of his birth. Put it there. 

Condemn the un building and make them establish another un in saudi arabia without our country becoming a member.

Sometimes Trump states dumb things in public, but I bet he does know what they are all about

The phony, anti-America UN is a gathering place for sure...to gather OUR money, we are their very own personal piggy bank. The rotten organization shouldn't exist, much less be on our soil. Our annual three billion US taxpayer dollars exceeds the combined money from 185 other countries....just plain sickening.

Actually the U.N.'s Agenda 21 is being adopted by lots of officials in the U.S. All the global warming alarmist "science" comes from a U.N. committee. We need to utterly shut this outrage down, leftist judges quote U.N. "law" in their decisions. If Trump is going to ignore this then he's not going to get reelected. 

Again I suggest that we withdraw, defund and send them to Afganastan.     I bet the NY City police

would be overjoyed

The UN is a cesspool of third world nations that wants the US to pay for everything. The US pays roughly one fourth of the UN budget. Why? There are almost two hundred countries in it. The UN wants to control our country. Once again Obama betrayed Israel and the many jewish Americans.

Not a club...a place where our enemies meet and collude to destroy Israel and the USA....I do NOT consent to ANY of my hard earned tax $$$$ going to this place..kick them ALL out of our country!

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

....and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how....

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
