When President Donald Trump said the United States is paying far too much for the United Nations (UN) and is not getting enough out of it, the political elites and media blasted him for it.
But, as always, Trump was right!
The U.S. contributes more than any other country and contributes more than almost all the other countries involved in the UN combined!

In all Trump’s genius, now he’s looking to slash the US funding of the UN.
The United Nations and dozens of its affiliated agencies are facing deep funding cuts and possibly an end to U.S. contributions, as the Trump administration seeks to slash billions of dollars from diplomacy and development assistance in next year’s budget.
Peacekeeping missions and international organizations that rely heavily on American financial contributions are reined in significantly in the White House’s proposal to reduce funding for the State Department and U.S. Agency for International Development by roughly 31 percent in the next fiscal year. That’s in addition to dramatic cuts in U.S.-led health, development and climate change initiatives that will require other donors to fill the gaps.
Trump should get the US out of the UN entirely!
