The UN never really saw eye-to-eye with the current government. That is actually a good thing because Trump is not letting them use government funds to keep up their suspicious deals started under Obama.
Foreign Policy just released a new report that reads: “State Department staffers have been told they need to seek cuts in excess of 50 percent of the U.S. funding for U.N. programs.”
The liberals had a mouthful to say about this and noted the move was “unprecedented retreat by President Donald Trump’s administration from international operations that keep the peace, provide vaccines for children, monitor rogue nuclear weapons programs and promote peace talks from Syria to Yemen.”
According to Right Wing News:
However, conservatives have been sick of sending $10 billion a year to an organization that’s viciously antisemitic and anti-Israel, allows some of the most heinous human rights abusers in the world on its Human Rights Council, and takes massive amounts of our money to fund that agenda.
Oh, and how’s that peace in Syria and Yemen going? Or that monitoring of Iran’s rogue nuclear program? In fact, the only thing that seems to be working out well for them is the vaccines for children thing, and I think we can fund that without spending $10 billion.
The biggest cut, numerically, seemed to be for peacekeeping. The Trump administration has asked State Department officials to “identify up to $1 billion in cuts in the U.N. peacekeeping budget, according to one source. The United States provides about $2.5 billion per year to fund peacekeepers.”
When U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley learned about this, she immediately went on inspecting her last 16 deals through the UN in case a loophole appeared. Are they scared? I think they are.
The entire defunding the UN thing started after the whole Israel mess occurred under Obama, of course.
““For eight long years, the Obama administration has worked systematically to undermine the nation of Israel,” Sen. Ted Cruz stated in December. “They actively worked to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu, and illegally used U.S. taxpayer funds to do so. Never has there been a more anti-Israel administration, and today’s United Nations vote is the culmination of their systemic agenda to weaken Israel and strengthen its enemies.”
