President Trump said that he will withhold billions of dollars in aid to countries who oppose his Jerusalem decision!
And today Nikki Haley confirmed that decision!
Cutting the “bloated” UN budget by $285 million next year is a “big step in right direction,” according to US envoy Nikki Haley. The news comes after reports from the UN that some critical aid programs were underfunded this year.
The US Mission to the United Nations announced on Sunday that it had secured a major curb in the global organization’s budget for 2018 and 2019. Commenting on the announcement, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said the cut would end benefits the international community has gained from “American generosity.”
According to Haley, “the inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known.”
Haley stunned the world when she said:
Washington 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,” the ambassador asserted.
The US has long contributed the biggest share to UN funds, which in 2017 amounted to 22 percent of the organization’s $5.4 billion two-year regular budget. The regular budget is separate from the UN funds allocated for its global peacekeeping operations, which cost the organization $7.8 billion in 2017 alone.
One of the biggest hypocrites out there MSNBC host Joe Scarborough attacked Halley he said that U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley acted “like a mob boss” in pressuring countries to oppose a resolution condemning the U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
“I saw Nikki Haley yesterday actually threatening like a mob boss,” Scarborough said on “Morning Joe” Friday. “Threatening member states of the United Nations. ‘You either be with us on this non-binding resolution, or else we will always remember. And we may yank humanitarian aid out of the mouths of the most truly disadvantaged on the planet.’”
The saddest thing of all is that he ignored the fact that he himself had once proposed completely pulling out of the United Nations.
Yes, you read that right: When Scarborough was a congressman back in 1995, he sponsored the “United Nations Withdrawal Act.”
The bill that the MSNBC host and former congressman introduced in Congress would have stopped all U.S. funding of the United Nations over a four-year period, and literally shut down all American involvement in the UN.
“It terminated all American contributions to U.N. peacekeeping operations after four years, including any fund supporting American personnel involved in peacekeeping missions,” reported Breitbart News.
Moreover, the bill proposed that the U.S. kick the United Nations out of its current headquarters in New York City.”
To reiterate, Scarborough formally proposed cutting off all American funding to the peacekeeping organization, and telling the UN to take its headquarters somewhere else.
Yet Scarborough and his co-host-turned-fiance Mika Brzezinski had the audacity to attack Haley and Trump for merely hinting that we should take a hard look at how much we spend to fund the exact same organization.
“If you’re an American, you just don’t want your representatives up there threatening the rest of the world,” the tone-deaf MSNBC host lectured on Friday.
“We’re going to need them on Iran. We’re going to need their help on North Korea. We may need their help again in Syria. We’re going to need their help in a thousand places,” he continued.
“And guess what? We’re not going to work together if Nikki Haley is going up there humiliating the United States of America by threatening our allies over a non-binding resolution.”
Well, news for you liberal hypocrites Nikki is doing what’s right for our country at the moment!
