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

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

Image result for Pam Karlan

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
