Mike Huckabee condemns the United Nations: An old, 'irrelevant bully

Onetime Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee took to the airwaves of Fox News late Tuesday to question the legitimacy of the United Nations after the international body passed a resolution last week condemning Israel for building settlements in land claimed by the Palestinians.

"I think the U.N. is about as relevant as a faculty meeting at a state university," Huckabee said.

He explained that he believes it's time for the U.S. to re-evaluate the U.N.'s legitimacy because it's clear they're more interested in squashing Israel than addressing human rights violations in China, the economic collapse in Venezuela or the slaughter of Christians in the Middle East.

The U.N. is an "international, irrelevant bully," the former Arkansas governor said.

"They're trying to force peace in a way that will never work because the Palestinians still haven't acknowledged that Israel has a right to exist," he added.

Huckabee went on to say that President-elect Donald Trump ought to take some sort of action against the U.N. because it's clear the organization doesn't have the human rights and religious liberties of all people in mind, suggesting that Trump should tell the U.N. to find a new headquarters.

"We are not going to tie-up Manhattan traffic any longer for their ridiculous attitudes on peace and freedom," Huckabee quipped.
