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

TOTAL BULLSHIT!: Trump Goes Off On Mueller Report, People Who ‘Take So-Called Notes'

After a 22-month investigation — with 2,800 subpoenas, 500 witnesses and 500 search warrants, which generated thousands of pages of information, all costing upwards of $30 million — the media boiled it all down to two words: “I’m fucked.”

The media, toeing the line for Hillary Clinton — who, after her shocking and humiliating loss decided that she needed someone or something to blame and pointed a crooked finger at Russia — decided that President Trump all but admitted his alleged crimes with those two words.

In his report revealed on Thursday, Robert Mueller described a scene in the Oval Office that allegedly took place right after he was appointed special counsel and charged with investigating allegations that Trump or his campaign minions colluded with Russia to alter the outcome of the 2020 election.

“Oh my God,” the president told then Attorney General Jeff Sessions, according to the report. “This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m fucked.” The interaction was recorded in notes taken by Session’s chief of staff, Jody Hunt.

Many media outlets did not include the context, which was plainly spoken by Trump at the same time. “Everyone tells me if you get one of these independent counsels it ruins your presidency,” Trump said. “It takes years and years and I won’t be able to do anything. This is the worst thing that ever happened to me.”

Luckily for America, he has been able to work through it all, returning the economy to its past glory, achieving record lows in unemployment, and much more.

Now, Trump is taking aim at “people that take so-called ‘notes.’ “

“Statements are made about me by certain people in the Crazy Mueller Report, in itself written by 18 Angry Democrat Trump Haters, which are fabricated & totally untrue. Watch out for people that take so-called ‘notes, when the notes never existed until needed. Because I never….” Trump wrote Friday morning on Twitter.

Statements are made about me by certain people in the Crazy Mueller Report, in itself written by 18 Angry Democrat Trump Haters, which are fabricated & totally untrue. Watch out for people that take so-called “notes,” when the notes never existed until needed. Because I never....

Trump got worked up after that, calling some tales told in the report “total bullshit.”

“[I]t was not necessary for me to respond to statements made in the ‘Report’ about me, some of which are total bullshit & only given to make the other person look good (or me to look bad). This was an Illegally Started Hoax that never should have happened,” he wrote.

Late Thursday night, Trump also praised Wall Street Journal opinion writer Kimberley Strassel, saying she “should get the Pulitzer. She is a treasure (and I don’t know her) who correctly called the Russia Hoax right from the start! Others who were soooo wrong will get the Prize. Fake News!”

Jump to "where the Mueller team lists its 'prosecution and declination' decisions . . . try not to picture Mueller 'pit bull' prosecutor Andrew Weissmann collapsed under mountains of federal statutes after his two-year hunt to find one that applied."

In a tweet on Thursday, Strassel perfectly summed up the contents of the Mueller report.

“1) What is in the Mueller report: –endless, unrevealing details of inconsequential interaction between trump folks and Russians. –remarkable details about the many and varied statutes the SC [special counsel] nonetheless debated using to tie someone up for something on the Russia front,” she wrote.
