Conservative Fox News pundit Charles Krauthammer offered a suggestion to President-elect Donald Trump Monday about how he should approach the United Nations once he is sworn in as commander in chief.
Krauthammer said on Fox News’ “Special Report” that, although the United Nations was “born in hope” following the end of the Second World War, “it turned out to be a disaster.”
Krauthammer addressed United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334, which demands that Israel cease construction in land claimed by the Palestinians, arguing that the U.N. spends “more than half its time and energy and resources and bureaucracy trying to attack the only Jewish state on the planet, a tiny little spec, while genocide, mayhem, murder and terrorism is going on all over the world.”
“It’s an obsession that, to an outside observer, appears to be insane,” he added. “Why are we doing this?”
Krauthammer went on to say that the United Nations spends the other half of its time “undermining the United States and democracy and our allies around the world.”
“It is an organization that exacerbates tensions, it does not assuage them,” Krauthammer continued.
“Any move to minimize our support for it, any move to get it out of the U.S. — imagine if headquarters were in Zimbabwe, the amount of weight and coverage it would get would be zero,” he said. “I think it's good real estate in downtown New York City, and Trump ought to find a way to put his name on it and turn it into condos."
