The UN Tried To Mess With Trump, But They Ended Up With A $285 Million Budget Reduction Instead

When are people going to learn that you don’t mess with Trump?  Over the past several decades, the United Nations has grown into a vast bureaucratic monstrosity that is completely out of control, but previous administrations have just kept feeding the beast.  Thankfully, we now have a president that is not afraid to stand up to the globalists, and the $285 million budget reduction that Trump and his team just negotiated is the largest budget reduction in UN history.  Those that have not read “The Art of the Deal” yet may want to do so, because this is Trump at his best.  The following is the statement that UN Ambassador Nikki Haley put out about this stunning budget reduction

 

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.

What makes this deal even more interesting is the fact that it came just after the UN General Assembly voted 128 to 9 against Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Is there a possibility that the two decisions are connected?

Even if they aren’t, the fact that the budget reduction deal happened so quickly after the anti-Israel vote sends a very strong message.

Meanwhile, what we do know is that President Trump has publicly warned the nations that voted against his recognition of Jerusalem that they could see their financial aid reduced

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday threatened to cut off financial aid to countries that vote in favor of a draft United Nations resolution calling for the United States to withdraw its decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

“They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars, and then they vote against us. Well, we’re watching those votes. Let them vote against us. We’ll save a lot. We don’t care,” Trump told reporters at the White House.

Considering the fact that we are 20 trillion dollars in debt, we could definitely cut back on financial aid to countries that want to go against us.

And personally, I would very much be in favor of reducing funding to the United Nations a whole lot more.  The UN is an anti-American institution that has been promoting the agenda of the globalists for as long as it has existed, and once I get to Washington I am going to do all that I can to help Trump put America first.

The UN needs to be defanged, declawed and made as powerless as possible, and this huge budget reduction is definitely a good first step in the right direction.

    The 285 million reduction was more of a warning sign, if you consider that U.S. contributions account for about 80% of the funding the U.N. receives. We need to get out of that crooked organization altogether, imo. All they know how to do is bash the U.S., Christianity, Jews and Israel.

      That’s not much considering that Trump has had a huge increase in military spending and plans to spend $1 trillion on infastructure putting toll roads everywhere. Of course you won’t hear that on this site or other inconvenient facts like how many Muslims Trump is bringing in.

    Property owners also learned you don’t mess with Trump. David Boaz of the Cato Institute has an article summarizing Trump’s shameful history of promoting eminent domain abuse for the purpose of seizing property from homeowners and businesses who refuse to sell to him.

    For more than 30 years Vera Coking lived in a three-story house just off the Boardwalk in Atlantic City. Donald Trump built his 22-story Trump Plaza next door. In the mid-1990s Trump wanted to build a limousine parking lot for the hotel, so he bought several nearby properties. But three owners, including the by then elderly and widowed Ms Coking, refused to sell.

    As his daughter Ivanka said in introducing him at his campaign announcement, Donald Trump doesn’t take no for an answer.

    Trump turned to a government agency – the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) – to take Coking’s property

    Peter Banin and his brother owned another building on the block. A few months after they paid $500,000 to purchase the building for a pawn shop, CRDA offered them $174,000 and told them to leave the property. A Russian immigrant, Banin said: “I knew they could do this in Russia, but not here. I would understand if they needed it for an airport runway, but for a casino?”

    As Boaz notes, this was not the only time that Trump sought to use eminent domain to seize property from unwilling owners. In 1994, he also lobbied the city of Bridgeport to condemn five small businesses so he could build an office and entertainment complex that he absurdly claimed would turn Bridgeport into a “national tourist destination.”

      I know, ain’t he a beauty to behold. A real killer. Just what we needed to wipe the slate clean in Washington & rebuild from the ground up. That’s why the American People hired him you pathetic bleeding heart idiot. War is brutal. You should worry yourself more over the dead Haitian children who had all their relief money stolen by the Clinton Foundation. Or all the dead in Benghazi or the innocent dead throughout the middle East & world from bombs dropped by the war cartel led by the rothschilds & the last 4 American Presidents before President Trump.

    They ain’t seen nothing yet. President Trump has them in his site now. Those corrupt POS’s. Before he’s done with them they’ll be begging for mercy. He will rebuild the UN himself under God’s direction based on a Universal Rule of Law.

    Can anyone reading my article prove me WRONG?

    It should have been obvious that ALL UN resolutions since 1949 are legally INVALID for the simple reason that the Arabs who were given the chance for a TWO states solution in Mandated Palestine by UN Resolution 181 in 1947 decided to start a war of EXTERMINATION against the newly born state of Israel

    This was the FIRST ACT of WAR that the UN was created to avert, thus the Arabs ABROGATED (made Null and Void) the UN resolution and its terms and conditions allowing the creation of a Two States solution including all articles regarding Jerusalem

    The Arabs started the war and LOST and now they (like ALL Muslims) whine and pretend to be VICTIMS of aggression

    What Arabs call NAKBA / Catastrophe (their failure to exterminate Israelis) and the ‘refugees’ resulted because the Arabs acted in AGGRESSION against the State of Israel and lost; but of course from the WARPED and illogical minds of Arabs, this must be overlooked and they should absurdly be allowed to go back once again to UN resolution 181

    WHY no one is bringing these crystal clear FACTS to the fore front of these spurious and illegitimate ‘resolutions’ beggars belief especially by Israelis
