NEW YORK – A big budget cut was slapped on the United Nations after negotiations led by the U.S., a top ambassador said this week.

On December 24, the United Nations agreed on a budget for the 2018-2019 fiscal year. ‎Among a host of other successes, the United States negotiated a reduction of over $285 million off the 2016-2017 final budget. In addition to these significant cost savings, U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley says they “reduced the UN’s bloated management and support functions, bolstered support for key U.S. priorities throughout the world, and instilled more discipline and accountability throughout the UN system.

“The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known. We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked. This historic reduction in spending – in addition to many other moves toward a more efficient and accountable UN – is a big step in the right direction. While we are pleased with the results of this year’s budget negotiations, you can be sure we’ll continue to look at ways to increase the UN’s efficiency‎ while protecting our interests,” said Ambassador Haley.

      That sounds great. Let’s go it alone. We have the biggest mouths in the world here and we can call them names and go nanny nanny boo boo at them. What does Europe have that we don’t? Or, conversely, what do we have that Europe doesn’t? You do realize in a couple days it will be 2018, don’t you?

    It’s about time we slapped down that bunch of Muslim’s. We should throw them out of the country.
