The madman strikes again!
Of course I say that in the most respectful way. I have so much respect and admiration for Donald J. Trump .
He’s the only man who does what actually needs to be done. He says what we’re all thinking, and then he does it!
If any one of us Deplorables were given the power, we’d do the same thing. I know I personally would love to withdraw from the U.N. altogether!
Donald Trump is simply the best. When the U.N. said it would not honor his relocation of the capital city of Israel, it gave him the perfect opportunity. In fact, I think he planned it this way. He’s always 3 steps ahead. When they gave him the opening, it gave him the chance to pull funding.
Here’s more on the breaking story, from FoxNews:
Calling it “a big step in the right direction,” U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Sunday night announced a historic reduction in the U.N. biennial operating budget.
Haley said the plan calls for a $285 million cut for the 2018-19 fiscal year.
“The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known,” Haley said. “We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked.”

She added, “This historic reduction in spending – in addition to many other moves toward a more efficient and accountable U.N. – is a big step in the right direction.”
The U.N. budget now covers a two-year period, beginning in January of an even-numbered year.
The United States was seeking a $250 million cut to the U.N. budget for 2018-19, on top of $200 million in savings already proposed by U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Agence France-Presse reported two weeks ago.
Guterres has proposed capping the U.N. biennial budget at $5.4 billion, shaving off $200 million from the 2016-17 budget.
The U.S. pays about 22 percent of the U.N.’s budget, or roughly $3.3 billion, and fully 28 percent of its peacekeeping effort.
