Trump: The UN ‘Just A Club’ For People To ‘Have A Good Time’

By

President-elect Donald Trump on Monday afternoon took to Twitter to air his thoughts about the United Nations, calling the international diplomacy group “just a club for people to get together, talk, and have a good time.” Trump said the organization has “such great potential” but neglects to use it, saying the state of the U.N. is “so sad!” Trump’s missive was met with some criticism, with some former U.N. personnel attacking it as tone-deaf. On Friday, the U.N. Security Council voted through a resolution demanding Israel cease to build settlements in disputed lands in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The U.S. declined to exercise its veto power, a decision Trump slammed; Trump’s ambassador to Israel has called for moving the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, which would upend decades of precedent.
