Trump: The UN doesn't solve problems, it causes them

Image result for trump UNU.S. President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday once again criticized the United Nations in wake of the anti-Israel resolution passed last week by the Security Council.

“The UN has such tremendous potential. Not living up to its potential,” Trump told reporters at his hotel in Palm Beach, Florida.

“When do you see the United Nations solving problems?” he added. “They don’t. They cause problems. So, if it lives up to the potential, it’s a great thing, and if it doesn’t, it’s a waste of time and money.”

The remarks are a continuation of a tweet posted earlier this week by Trump, in which he said the UN is simply “a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time”.

On Saturday, the President-elect said he would work to achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority despite the fact that the vote at the Security Council made it more difficult.

“The big loss yesterday for Israel in the United Nations will make it much harder to negotiate peace. Too bad, but we will get it done anyway!” wrote Trump.

President Elect Trump, GET US OUT OF THE UN!!  And get the UN OUT of the U.S.!!!

AMEN!!!!  They are a bunch of scofflaws who hide behind "diplomatic immunity" while ruining the area around the UN building. Some 44 years ago, I wanted them out of the USA so researched those stats and they are outrageous and disgusting. 

the UN  is a joke...stop funding it and kick it out of the country

and if it is approached as a business intervention......HE WILL!

USA pays more $$$$ than any other country and as such......

I say stop funding and re-purpose the has a great water view side!

I completely agree.

The U.N. is just another vicious mafia, and we're PAYING them to commit crimes.  There is no purpose for the U.N. any longer except to terrorize and victimize people.  Most of them should be in prison, or executed.


When UN peacekeepers commit atrocities, someone has to act

UN Troops Accused of Sex Crimes Worldwide

UN peacekeepers accused of killing and rape in Central African Republic

UN “Peacekeeping” Troops Face Scandals on Sex Crimes, Corruption

What a beautiful picture, I can see it in my dreams.  The UN has been nothing but a burden, filled with Anti-American Haters, and we're paying the Bill.  NO MORE!!!     Close them down!!

Someone suggested a VA Hospital ...... I am all for it  !!!!

Does the U.N. pay RENT?  Or are they just a bunch of freeloaders, as well as harmful to our Counttry.

I am not real smart, trust me on this.  But in 1962 I had a one day tour on the UN.  As dumb and as young as I was at that time I realized that the UN did not have the best interests of the American people nor for the USA.  During my 30 years in the US Military I had to work with UN people and troops.  I never met anyone working for the UN that i trusted.  They were either criminals or they were dumber than dirt.

Hey Top, that's an insult to dirt!!

Goodbye 2020: Clinton Ordered By Federal Judge To Submit To Questioning

( – Just when Hillary Clinton began hinting that she’s ready to run again in 2020, she has been ordered by a federal judge to submit to questioning about the use of her private email server to convey classified documents during her time as Secretary of State.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan made the order as part of a lawsuit from conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.

“Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions — including key q’s about the setting up of her email system,” wrote Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a tweet following the ruling.

BREAKING: Judicial Watch announced today that, following JW's court battle, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled that Hillary Clinton must answer – under oath – two additional questions on her controversial email system within 30 days.

Breaking: Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions -- including key q's about the setting up of her email system. Court denied our request to unseal vid depositions of Clinton aides. Great work by Michael Bekesha!

As a statement from Judicial Watch explains, the ruling is the latest development in the group’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, which they began to discover why former deputy chief of staff to Mrs. Clinton, Huma Abedin, was allowed to work at the State Department while also engaged in “outside employment.”

Clinton now has 30 days to answer two key questions from a list of 25 questions composed by Judicial Watch.

The questions the judge selected are:

1) “Describe the creation of the system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational.”

During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails “were in the State’s system” and “if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been able to do so.” Identify the basis for this statement, including all facts on which you relied in support of the statement, how and when you became aware of these facts, and, if you were made aware of these facts by or through another person, identify the person who made you aware of these facts.

This new development is huge because it means that the two critical scandals from Clinton’s time in the State Department, her private email server and the Benghazi attacks, are facing fresh scrutiny in both the legal system and the court of public opinion.

And while Clinton likely had little chance of any run in 2020, this makes it even less likely she will stand even a shred of a chance.

We’ve have got to hope and pray that at long last, this leads to the long overdue criminal charges we’ve all been waiting to see.
