Trump tells UN that US pays it too much

Trump says that the US is paying too much to the United Nations, and not getting its money’s worth.

“The United States is one out of 193 countries in the UN and yet we pay over 20 percent of the budget. In fact we pay much more,” he says.

“If the UN could accomplish its stated goals, this investment would easily be worth it,” he adds. But according to the US president, the international body is failing at its stated goal of providing peace and prosperity to the world

“Major sections of the world are in conflict and some are going to hell,” he says.

“We hope the UN can one day be a much more effective advocate of human freedom and dignity in the world. In the meantime, we think that nations of the world should pay their dues and not only rely on the United States.”
