Yesterday, on Christmas Eve – (Gateway Pundit) President Trump reduced US funding to the United Nations.
“Today, the United Nations agreed on a budget for the 2018-2019 fiscal year. Among a host of other successes, the United States negotiated a reduction of over $285 million off the 2016-2017 final budget. In addition to these significant cost savings, we reduced the UN’s bloated management and support functions, bolstered support for key U.S. priorities throughout the world, and instilled more discipline and accountability throughout the UN system.”
U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday threatened to cut off financial aid to countries that vote in favor of a draft United Nations resolution calling for the United States to withdraw its decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.“They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars, and then they vote against us. Well, we’re watching those votes. Let them vote against us. We’ll save a lot. We don’t care,” Trump told reporters at the White House. […]U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, in a letter to dozens of U.N. states on Tuesday seen by Reuters, warned that Trump had asked her to “report back on those countries who voted against us.”She bluntly echoed that call in a Twitter post: “The U.S. will be taking names.”
Each year the United States gives approximately $8 billion in mandatory payments and voluntary contributions to the United Nations and its affiliated organizations. The biggest portion of this money – about $3 billion this year – goes to the U.N.’s regular and peacekeeping budget.
IMO no organization that big can fail to do some good. That said, it is mainly a slush fund for global elite parasites.
Yes, it's a huge swamp and we've been feeding it. Time to reduce the cashflow to nations who despise us.
Glad he is cutting the budget there. The UN is like thanking the bully for taking your lunch money.
There's a lot of skullduggery in the UN…then again, are they worse than the FBI has turned out to be? I think not. The FBI was "Hillary's Insurance Policy" and that sort of dastardly conduct needs to be excised like a tumor.
Good one, Merry Christmas to y'all!
LindaG get the award for best comment!
I agree, LL.
Adrienne, thank you, haha. 🙂
Maybe President Trump can get them to leave New York for, say……Brussels?
Maybe Cuba? It would be fun to flood the island with spies.
Merry Christmas, Jim.
Let's see that closer to zero.
5% may be appropriate, and build a UN compound in the desert somewhere with a landing strip and a big wall around it for delegates to visit. We need to do something to eliminate the espionage agents who flock to the US under UN credentials.
The UN desert HQ should be dry (no booze), which would keep the Muslims sour. They love to travel to NYC and booze it up with whores and limos.
