It's not out of the UN, maybe gradually, but it's for muslime interests more than the West's interests, and always voting against Israel based on the Palestinian propaganda films, obvious and badly contrived.

I am very angry with President Trump cutting the US contribution to the UN by $285M. 
President Trump should have eliminated the $4B in US voluntary contributions.  Fuck the UN !

Cut it off 100%.

Leonard Wong · December 31, 2017 at 6:42 am

Money put to good use finally. Just ask yourself objectively…. what have they done with the cash? Terrorism is rife globally, poverty is rife as third world countries are still starving and backward technologically, the environment is crap…..absolutely crap.
Chain migration? Any terrorist can easily send his female family members over, then get her to pull him in.
Who's the terrorist who came up with this plan?

Don Dawson · December 31, 2017 at 6:42 am

Money shouldn't buy votes.
It's a vote it was fair
Now since u sore losers they will probably remember this next time they vote

John Hasse · December 31, 2017 at 6:42 am

In relation to the US budget of some 4 Trillion $/year, it is more symbolic than real. Any cut is a good idea, but without a lot of them, we are toast.

Ruth Stieb · December 31, 2017 at 6:42 am

Lol he's right, hell would be like being trapped on an elevator with Rosie O'donnell. Gross!

TUFF LOVE NEEDED · December 31, 2017 at 6:42 am

What ever President Trump says…….you can best believe he WILL DO IT….sooner then later!
Once he puts it out there…. we know he has been thinking of the best way to handle it and has already worked out the LEGAL challenges!!!
DEFUND the USELESS UN!

Alix De B. · December 31, 2017 at 6:42 am

I hope this is just the first cut of many others to come in the future!!!! Wonderful. WAY TO GO Nikki Haley!

harold Petzold · December 31, 2017 at 6:42 am

Should jack the rent too!

VS30131968 · December 31, 2017 at 6:42 am

The UN is a failure and has been for many years. We should get the hell out of it and give them 24 hours to get the hell out of the USA. Screw them all.

Christine Cuneo · December 31, 2017 at 6:42 am

Cut all American funding to the UN.

michael rodrigues · December 31, 2017 at 6:42 am

Mark Steyn nailed it when he described the majority of UN nations as 'pipsqueak posers', imo.

Wayne Davis · December 31, 2017 at 6:42 am

Anyone notice that for now, the US is punishing the entire UN and not individual countries, at least for now. Genius. Everyone is on notice that we are serious, but no one nation should take it personally, for now.

New York Times Admits That Embassy Move Didn’t Lead To Mass Violence

President Donald Trump’s decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem hasn’t lead to the violence predicted by many in the media, according to a Saturday 24 December 2017 report in The New York Times.

While editorial boards and cable news talking heads blasted the supposed reckless decision (even a Times editorial published right before the president’s announcement said the move would raise “new tension in the region” and could incite “violence”), instead a “mood of hopeless resignation” overshadows the Palestinians.

“With residents neither basking in seasonal cheer nor raging in the throes of a new intifada, the popular mood in the city was more one of hopeless resignation,” the article reads.

There are still some smaller protests on the streets of Gaza, but the general peace of the region directly contradicts the apocalyptic fears espoused by so many in the days following Trump’s executive order.

“Yet, despite the dire predictions of major turmoil, and the best efforts of both Fatah and Hamas to mobilize the masses, so far there has been no large-scale, spontaneous outburst of violence in the wake of the president’s declaration,” The Times writes.

One of the reasons behind the embassy move, according to Trump, was to communicate to the Palestinians that threats of violence over any policy change will no longer deter U.S. interests in the region. According to one individual interviewed by The Times, the Palestinians might be learning this lesson:

The response has been more of a part-time simulation of an uprising, almost by appointment. A few thousand protesters have turned out at familiar friction points in the West Bank or along the Gaza border on the designated “Days of Rage” called for by the political factions. Other days, hardly anybody has shown up.

“It’s not that people don’t want to stand up for their rights,” said Samar Salah, 25, a Muslim student from a nearby village who had come to Bethlehem with her friends to see the Christmas decorations. “But there are never any results …”

Further, as the Times notes, “many Palestinians now view the confrontations with Israeli soldiers as pointless since they consider the Jerusalem declaration unlikely to be reversed.” While many in the media treat the average Palestinian as unstable, the article notes that many in the region “seem to have more immediate concerns than throwing stones at Israeli soldiers.”

Although it may seem counterintuitive, Trump’s devotion to projecting America’s power might actually have a calming effect on the Middle East — particularly with regards to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Unlike previous administrations, the president’s unwillingness to allow Palestinian threats of violence to deter the US from recognizing “reality” has caused some Palestinians to realize that “not one intifada has made a difference,” as Palestinian activist Abu Akker told The Times.

As President Ronald Reagan once said, the United States should “maintain … peace through our strength” for “weakness only invites aggression.”
