The UN is more corrupt than our own government, it is no friend of the USA, it serves no benefit to the USA while sucking more money from the USA than any other country, and it doesn’t let other nations grow up and make their own decisions and settle disputes among themselves without supervision.


Debate if you like.....

Trump’s creation? confused he did not start this poll? confused


I like what Winston Churchill, said long ago... there are “no eternal allies” and “no perpetual enemies” for any nation. So, let everyone pay their own fare share and way in this world and settle their own differences.

I didn’t know Trump wants the USA to exit the UN? About time we got rid of that economic anchor. We fund the UN so it can create policy which is opposed to what the USA stands for and allows. Trump has it right on exiting the UN.

Trump is bragging about something he hasn’t done? confused


So, why do other nations' issues need to be addressed by the USA?

Which Nation is currently hosting the UN headquarters? The UN with its thousands of well paid expats contributing to the thriving of the local economy and the vibrant cultural life... isn't the HQ situated in NY, home city to president Trump (and his real estate empire)? Do you seriously even consider he's going to shoot himself in the foot?

And if so, where would you like the UN HQ to relocate to? Moscow? Bejing? ... or devote a last diplomatic effort to bestow the new UN HQ onto some allied nation ... e.g. in Toronto ? Vienna ? Berlin ?

Well sorry i did not vote but Trump in my opinion is the only one who has stood up and told some in the UN to pay there dues, grin

I do like that quote from Winston Churchill.

How are we ever going to get sensible talks with Eastern countries in these so called enlightened times if one sede of earth gangs up against another .

what will we do when alienstransport invade, just fictional at the moment but going to the moon was fiction at one tome toogrin

HOw about the US agree to the International Criminal Court and allow itself to be judged by the world on it's war record?

If there were no crimes and atrocities ... nothing to worry about eh ?

On the other hand of course ...

Those ICC people have to be high on something just in thinking they want recognized for ruling these United States of America. Even POTUS Obama didn’t give them any time.

Having courts outside a country having power over a country is ceding sovereignty . Our new government wanted changes to the TPPA on that point . If Trumpy seriously gets pissed off with the UN putting country's with dictators running them on human rights committees and the like I am sure with his skills he will be able to make it look like the UN is expelling the US .Some of the crap directed at Israel just defies intelligence .

Just shows the hypocrisy of Uncle Sam ...

Barge in anywhere and create havoc, destabilise other countries under the guise of 'breaches of Human Rights' but never submit themselves to the rule of International Law?


As Duterte has said ... there ought be one rule of law for the whole world not a scenario where if his nation wages a war on drugs it's NOT OK but if the US wage a war on drugs they can do whatever ... including stage raids on other sovereign states, kidnap their leaders and try them in a US COurt!

Juss sayin'

YESTERDAY! Last year! Last decade! We NEVER should have joined, AT ALL! Do you KNOW, that by "joining", UN rules/laws SUPERCEDE US law? We have AGREED to abide by UN decisions, whether they conflict with US law, or not! By SIGNED treaty! WHY would an American DO that??????????????? confused dunno frustrated

Do you REALLY think that having the UN in New York HELPS New York's economy? rolling on the floor laughing You think "well paid ex-pats" make up for all the drugs and crime imported into the US, by those IMMUNE FROM PROSECUTION "hot Shots"? If so YOU'RE WELCOME to it! And YOUR country can pay for all the EXCESSIVE security services! All the interruptions of it's daily life. All the ABUSE of it's laws, and NONpayment of the cost involved in hosting the disrespectful delegates, who figure, BECAUSE they have "diplomatic immunity", they can do WHATEVER THEY PLEASE, because NOTHING can be done about it!

If "I" had MY way, let's move it to Tehran! Or Damascus! Or Calcutta! How about Phnom Penh? And see how soon the delegates would be trying to AVOID the "duty"! And how soon it would wither on the vine, WITHOUT the US paying all it's bills! applause banana yay cheers

rolling on the floor laughing what are you smoking? Why would the only benevolent super power and sovereign nation (USA) want to give up its sovereignty to someone else. You’d probably be speaking Japanese and goose stepping around while you pick up litter if it wasn’t for the USA removing Japan and Germany as world threats.
The present day UN should tax any of its member nations and send the tax proceeds to the USA to pay off the USA’s national debt. This tax should equal 10% of each country’s GNP.

The UN wants to register small arms in the USA. Imagine a group of people in the UN who can’t settle their own issues mostly without conflict, want to usurp the constitution of the USA?
Hilarious Clinton supported this idea.
They wanted to do it all in the name of eradicating the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects (PoA). In all its aspects, everywhere.
What is illicit trade on small arms. And who epreally cares. All people should have a right to own and carry small arms everywhere. They save lives.


Stay away UN. NO KORE USA funds for the UN sinkhole.

Name calling is the resort of those who can't think of a valid argument! In other words, the IGNORANT! Let's try to play nice, "Gentlemen" (and I use THAT word, advisedly).

But I DO have THIS question, Chesney. Why would a foreigner be concerned about WHAT the US does, or DOESN'T do? What "RIGHT" DO YOU HAVE, to get involved in OUR internal politics? NONE, that "I" can think of!confused doh Shouldn't you be MORE CONCERNED about what YOU, and YOUR country are doing/contributing to the world? dunno
