It’s about time we stopped paying for all of the waste and fraud at 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.
“The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known. We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked. This historic reduction in spending – in addition to many other moves toward a more efficient and accountable UN – is a big step in the right direction. While we are pleased with the results of this year’s budget negotiations, you can be sure we’ll continue to look at ways to increase the UN’s efficiency while protecting our interests,” said Ambassador Haley.
President Trump also tweeted “things will be different
Previously 128 members of the United Nations General Assembly had voted in favor of a non-binding resolution declaring President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital “null and void.” Nikki Haley, America’s Ambassador to the United Nations had said earlier that:
The United States will remember this day in which it was singled out for attack in the General Assembly for the very right of exercising our right as a sovereign nation.
There may be more reductions to come. We’ll have to wait and see.
