U.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 building...it 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.
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!!
THE USA NEEDS TO GET OUT OF THE UN THEY ARE NOT FOR HELPING THE USA ONLY HARMING US BY ALL THEIR DECISIONS MADE BY ALL THE COUNTRIES THAT DON'T LIKE US .
