Some bad news for the globalists at the United Nations.

President Donald Trump has told the State Department they need to cut more than half of their funding for UN programs.

The announcement came as the White House is expected to release its budget proposal for fiscal year 2018. In addition to the 50 percent cut in UN funding, it’s expected that there will be a cut of more than one-third in the budgets of the State Department and US Agency for International Development.

And President Trump might not be done. The Hill is reporting that “it’s not clear if Trump’s budget plan, from the Office of Management and Budget, would reflect the full extent of Trump’s proposed cuts to the U.N.”

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has suggested phasing in the major reductions over the coming three years. One official close the administration told Foreign Policy that Tillerson has flexibility about how best to implement the reduction.

The United States gives the United Nations about $10 billion per year for their operations. The cuts could have the greatest impact on peacekeeping operations and UNICEF, The Hill writes.

The World Food Program might be spared from cuts, however. That UN Agency is funded by the Department of Agriculture. But humanitarian aid in general might be jeopardy. One source said the administration is considering cutting it by 36 percent.

Richard Gowan, a U.N. expert at the European Council on Foreign Relations, said the alterations would spark “chaos” if true.

“[It would] leave a gaping hole that other big donors would struggle to fill,” he told FP, pointing to how the U.S. provided $1.5 billion of the U.N. refugee agency’s $4 billion budget last year.

“Multiply that across other humanitarian agencies like the World Food Program and you are basically talking about the breakdown of the international humanitarian system as we know it.”

Administration officials warned that Trump’s budget proposal would include $54 billion in domestic spending cuts to offset an equal increase in defense spending. President Trump has vowed to strengthen the military before the release of his 2018 budget.

“There are rumors of big cuts to the State Department budget, but again, on our side, no figures,” one diplomat purportedly told donors from Europe, Japan and South Korea.

Perhaps it is time for the religion of peace to step up and help care for the world's poor, sick and hungry.

I want it cut to zero and I want them out of this country! They have been undermining the US since they were first created as The League of Nations!
