The Donald Trump who is now the 45th president of the United States said Wednesday that the United Nations is a joke, and the United Kingdom has lost its credibility in the world.
Trump said in a radio interview with The Washington Post that he is not worried about the United Nation’s recent announcement that the U.S. is withdrawing from the United Global Compact.
“We’re withdrawing from it,” Trump said.
“If you’re not doing it, we’ll have a new era.”
The former reality television star was responding to the news that the UN is not renewing its membership, which was the first step in a process that could lead to the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Kuwait joining the organization in 2019.
The U.N. also recently said it is ending its own membership, a move that Trump said could “make the world a lot better.”
The U., the UAA, and UGG are the five member states of the global body.
The five countries have a total population of 1.2 billion.
“The United Nations was not founded in 1848 and was never intended to serve as a vehicle for peace,” Trump told The Washington Examiner.
“It is now a vehicle to pursue the political, economic and social interests of the world’s largest corporations, and to undermine the sovereignty and integrity of other nations.
It is a Trojan Horse.”
The Trump campaign also released a statement Wednesday in response to the UN announcement.
“This was the result of years of negotiations that failed, and now they are going to try to take it from us,” Trump campaign spokesperson Jason Miller said in the statement.
“Our campaign was always clear that the time for a negotiated solution to the global warming crisis had passed.
That is why we have made it clear that we will continue to oppose any efforts by the United UN to take the U.”
Miller added that Trump will continue “to lead by example in opposing any attempt by the UN to change U. S. law, which will continue the failed policy of a one world government that will allow for the global economic collapse that has already taken place in this country.”
Trump has been critical of the UN since the agency’s previous president, Ban Ki-moon, resigned in February after being elected in 2015.
Ban, who served for 16 years as the UN secretary general, was replaced by Trump’s choice for the post, Nikki Haley, who has not publicly commented on the United state’s withdrawal from the UN.
The UN Security Council passed a resolution in December declaring that the international body is not in compliance with its charter, but that resolution did not require any action.
“No country can change the UN Charter, but the United states will continue in our support of the Charter, which has served our country well for more than three centuries,” Trump wrote in a tweet in October.
The United Nations’ chief, Nikki R. Haley, speaks to reporters after her confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2019, in Washington.
The statement from Trump on Wednesday was released on the website of the U-T San Francisco, a publication of the California-based U.-T.
The website says the statement was drafted by “Trump’s former top international adviser and senior foreign policy adviser.”
“He said the United nations would have to make its own decision on whether to continue with the UGAT and join the UAG,” the statement says.
“We will have to be able to do it,” he said.”
Trump said that he will make the United State’s decision on joining or staying in the UGC “later in the week.
“”We will have to be able to do it,” he said.
