“As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th,” --- Donald Trump

“As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th,” --- Donald Trump

Published By Family Writers


Three days after the United Nations adopted a resolution calling on Israel to halt Jewish settlement activity on Palestinian territory, President-elect Donald Trump tweeted that the international body “is just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time.”

The harsh criticism, which Trump made Monday while vacationing at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, signaled he would likely challenge more than just the 71-year-old institution’s approach to the Middle East once he takes office.

He tweeted "The United Nations has such great potential but right now it is just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time. So sad!"

While Trump did not elaborate on why he considered the United Nations ineffectual, he made it clear both before and after the Security Council adopted the resolution condemning Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem that he believed the United States should have blocked the move. President Obama instructed U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power to abstain from voting, on the grounds that the Israeli government’s continued support for expanding Jewish settlements could undermine any prospect of eventually reaching a two-state solution to the simmering conflict.

After the Security Council voted, Trump tweeted, “As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th,” which is the day he will assume the presidency.
Trump moved relatively quickly to select a U.N. ambassador nominee after being elected. But his choice, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R), has little international affairs experience beyond leading trade missions to about half a dozen countries while serving as governor.
