Nikki Haley Strikes United Nations Where It Really Hurts. They’ve Been Dreading This All Year

Most Americans agree: the United Nations is worthless. For decades we’ve watch it make a laughing stock of our values. This so-called peace-keeping body has sat by as genocide and terrorism swept the globe.

The U.N. does nothing to improve the world. It only plays politics. The most corrupt, evil nations are allowed to join. Of course, they sway matters in their favor.

Americans have sat by and watched our money fund such an evil group. Until today. Under Trump, serious changes are going to happen. It’s starting. The government just announced a major cutback to U.S. funding of the U.N.

And it’s only the beginning.

From Daily Caller:

The United Nations has agreed on a 2018-2019 budget that includes a steep reduction in spending, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley announced over the weekend.

The upcoming biennial U.N. budget will drop by $285 million — about 5 percent — from the 2016-2017 level, in what Haley says is a “big step in the right direction” toward making the U.N. more accountable.

“The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known,” she said in a statement Sunday night. “We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked…”

The U.S. provides about 22 percent of the U.N.’s biennial budget — roughly $1.2 billion — and about 28 percent of its funding for peacekeeping efforts…

Haley’s announcement comes a week after the U.N. general assembly passed a resolution denouncing President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and begin the process of moving the U.S. embassy there. Ahead of the vote, both Haley and Trump warned that the U.S. would keep the result in mind when deciding Washington’s future contributions to the U.N.

Does the U.N. really think we’d give them more money? After they insult us with that bogus resolution? Many Americans wonder why we’re still a part of the U.N. Perhaps we should kick them out of the country for good!

Let’s see how well the U.N. does without American support. They will have trouble keeping those slush funds alive without our cash. Maybe Russia, Iran, or North Korea can flip the bill. Perhaps all those countries that hate Israel can start dishing out the cash.

I don’t think so. The U.N. survives because America supports like. Much like the rest of the world. It’s high time they were held accountable for their disgraceful behavior.

This budget cut is only the beginning. Except to see major changes coming in our role with that organization.

They’ll either learn, or regret.
