President Trump is reportedly considering massive governmental cuts in his budget proposal, including cutting funding to the United Nations by half.
I think I just had my first real orgasm.
State Department staffers have been instructed to seek cuts in excess of 50 percent in U.S. funding for U.N. programs, signaling an unprecedented retreat by President Donald Trump’s administration from international operations that keep the peace, provide vaccines for children, monitor rogue nuclear weapons programs, and promote peace talks from Syria to Yemen, according to three sources.
The push for such draconian measures comes as the White House is scheduled on Thursday to release its 2018 budget proposal, which is expected to include cuts of up to 37 percent for spending on the State Department, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and other foreign assistance programs, including the U.N., in next year’s budget. The United States spends about $10 billion a year on the United Nations. (H/T – AOSHQ)
The fact the media is losing their shite over this should immediately win you over. If these cuts are bad from their point of view, they are galactically awesome from ours. The president promised to drain the swamp. Slashing funds to the U.N. is a fantastic start.
