We all remember that our President Donald Trump in December 2016, tweeted that the UN has “such great potential,” but it has become “just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time. So sad!”
After this tweet, a couple of days later Trump tweeted again:
“As to the UN, things will be different after Jan 20th.” Just how different that might yet become apparent in another tweet that defied any rudimentary grasp of reality: “We will also cancel billions in global warming payments to the United Nations, and use that money to support America’s vital environmental infrastructure and natural resources.”
Americans have different views on this topic. Some share the opinion America has to stay in the UN, but some of the Americans think that leaving the UN is a terrible idea because first of all, America will lose his seat on the UN Security Council with veto power. And second USA would not be able to attend important meetings in the UN council.
The question incorrectly assumes that the UN is somehow independent of the US. The US created the UN. The UN serves the US. It always has, it always will.
What do you think?
Should the United States quit the United Nations?
