Report: Trump Considers Proposals for Cutting U.N. Funding

The New York Times reports President Trump is looking at proposals for reducing U.S. funding for the United Nations and scaling back U.N. influence over American foreign policy.

The first of the two draft orders, titled “Auditing and Reducing U.S. Funding of International Organizations” and obtained by The New York Times, calls for terminating funding for any United Nations agency or other international body that meets any one of several criteria.

Those criteria include organizations that give full membership to the Palestinian Authority or Palestine Liberation Organization, or support programs that fund abortion or any activity that circumvents sanctions against Iran or North Korea. The draft order also calls for terminating funding for any organization that “is controlled or substantially influenced by any state that sponsors terrorism” or is blamed for the persecution of marginalized groups or any other systematic violation of human rights.

The order calls for then enacting “at least a 40 percent overall decrease” in remaining United States funding toward international organizations.

Those funding cuts would most likely come from peacekeeping operations, the International Criminal Court, the United Nations Population Fund, and developmental aid for countries opposed to “important United States policies,” according to the NYT’s description of the draft order.

The second draft order discussed by the Times would impose a moratorium on new multilateral treaties, as well as a review of all current and pending treaties which are not “directly related to national security, extradition or international trade.”

    Trump can’t do it fast enough. The U.N is no longer adhering to its original purpose. Now it is trying to run the whole world in what is called “The New World Order” administrated by the umbrella “United Nations” run by Islamic radicals.

  • Roy Fredrichsen says:

    Why do WE have to support an organization that has consistantly wants to disarm the Americans but lets every other country run wild with guns? It is time some other country be the Headquarters for that bunch of thieves.

  • Pete Bundy says:

    I have said for years now-Get the UN out of the US and get the US out of the UN. Let them move to Yemen. Nice warm climate, sandy beaches, terrorist in abundance.

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    The United Nations was created with a fatal flaw. Allowing dictarorships, communist and muslim countries to join.

    NATO was all the west needed to defend itself.

    I would make two changes.

    Replace Turkey with Israel. Stop pretending Turkey is an ally and Israel is not.
    Move the UN Headquarters to Syria closer to the action.

  • Warren says:

    DO IT !!!!!

  • Lorraine E says:

    Best way to deal with our enemies in the u.n. is for our country to entirely withdraw from it, never give them one more cent of our tax dollars and evict them from their offices in New York. Good riddance to the u.n.!

  • texexpatriate says:

    Cutting funding is one thing, but a better one is to withdraw and kick the organization out of the USA.

  • justinwachin says:

    Way to go, President Trump! It’s time we stop bankrolling organizations who oppose the values we as America hold dear.

    We also need to void every unratified treaty or agreement resembling a treaty. Future treaties should include a deadline for ratification so they can’t be revived at a later date when a more sympathetic Congress is in place.

  • James Brooks says:

    We should just leave the UN it has been a pain for us the whole way through.they think they own us.

  • Tiger says:

    The UN is a nest of scorpions in our skivvies. They need to be taken out and if he is going to question organizations funding terrorists well I tell ya now Catholic Church and other Christians are supporting and getting paid good money for bringing the scum of the world from Somalia etc into our country. I would sure like to see that stopped and all those single men here from the 7 countries he named as dangerous deported post haste.

    New quarters in the 800 long term Detention Centers, family friendly empty across this country, then off to their countries.

          What about the testicle squeezing prison time black female lesbian criminal of a speaker for woman rally in DC? Obama missed her for a cabinet position. She’s got all the qualifications he looked for. Secretary of State? HUD? DOJ ? CIA? DHS?
          She couldn’t have done worse!

    Finally, a leader I will happily refer to as “Mister President”. It does have a nice ring to it Does It Not ! I’ts taken far too long for me to be able to say that and I was starting to wonder if it would ever happen again in my lifetime…. Finally, I think my grandkids and great grandkids may have a chance as well as a future.

  • Jerry says:

    I say get the United States out of the UN completely and then get the UN completely out of the USA, why should we be responsible for 40 percent of their funding? Seems like a waste of the tax payers money, also I think the Congress people’s wages should be the same as they got in the job they held prior to becoming a congress person, they should however get the same cost of living wage increase as the military does or the social security receipiant, also the same quality health care the veterans receive, no voting for their own raises, no gold health care, no special retirement, no special treatment,

      Jerry, you shouldn’t talk like that, your giving me a woody.
