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!

ALERT ALERT

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
