Trump Prepares U.N. Takedown

President looks to scale back U.S. involvement in activities outside the national interest

by Edmund Kozak | 27 Jan 2017 

President Trump is reportedly preparing an executive order that will significantly reduce U.S. involvement in the United Nations.
The draft order, “Auditing and Reducing U.S. Funding of International Organizations,” would terminate funding completely for any international organization that meets one or more of several criteria.
The U.S. currently provides roughly a quarter of all funding to U.N. peacekeeping missions and funds a full fifth of the body’s general budget alone.
The criteria include those that recognize the Palestinian Authority or PLO, fund abortion, or work to circumvent sanctions against Iran or North Korea. The order also calls for “at least a 40 percent overall decrease” in funding to international groups overall.
The order would also create a committee tasked with identifying where cuts can be made, The New York Times reported. The committee would take a closer look at the International Criminal Court, peacekeeping missions, the UN Population Fund, and developmental aid to countries that oppose U.S. policy.
