President Trump sat before the United Nations and told them they need to change and the United States hasn’t seen a return on their investment for years.
Conservatives have been sick of sending $10 billion a year to an organization that’s viciously antisemitic and anti-Israel, allows some of the most heinous human rights abuses in the world on its Human Rights Council, and takes massive amounts of our money to fund that agenda.

In a meeting with counterparts from around the world, Mr. Trump said the United Nations had grown too bureaucratic and ineffective and should reorient its approach. He complained that spending and staff at the United Nations had grown enormously over the years but that “we are not seeing the results in line with this investment.”
“That’s why we commend the secretary general and his call for the United Nations to focus more on people and less on bureaucracy,” Mr. Trump said, with Secretary General António Guterres sitting beside him. “We seek a United Nations that regains the trust of the people around the world. In order to achieve this, the United Nations must hold every level of management accountable, protect whistle-blowers and focus on results rather than on process.”
He added that any reform should ensure that no single member “shoulders a disproportionate share of the burden, and that’s militarily or financially,” a sore point for many American conservatives who bristle at the share of United Nations costs born by the United States.
