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."
The United Nations has such great potential but right now it is just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time. So sad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2016
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.
As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 23, 2016
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 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
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!
