Donald Trump Blasts the United Nations for "Mismanagement" [Video]
None of us here at LwC are particular fans of the UN (see UN Pushing to Ban ‘Cultural Appropriation.’ Yeah, About That… and NOT SATIRE: UN Appoints Saudi Arabia to Special Committee… For Women’s Rights?!). It's not our taste. So like most of the political interwebs, we're all waiting to hear what Donald Trump says at the United Nations general assembly on Tuesday. Or even better, what will he tweet about it! Perhaps this clip about it being a mismanaged bureaucracy serves as a preview of what's to come.

In recent years, the United Nations has not reached it's full potential because of bureaucracy and mismanagement. While the United Nations on a regular budget has increased by 140% and it's staff has more than doubled since 2000, we are not seeing the results in line with this investment. But I know that under the Secretary General, that's changing and changing fast.
Trump makes a good point here. The United Nations has only gotten more resources, more staffing, and more money with time. And what do they have to show for it? For starters, they're getting even more and more insufferable with each passing day (see UN DEMANDS America Pay Black People. For... Slavery?!).
It seems the better equipped the UN is, the more they morph into a bastion of wrong. All the while they demand countries abide by their puffed up policies simply because they said so. Now imagine being a European country who has to deal with both the United Nations AND the European Union. No thanks.
This befuddling bureaucracy is a symptom of globalist progress. Collectivists want everyone to be united by a single authority, even if that authority is the suckiest of sucks. Clearly Trump isn't having any of it. Can't say I blame him.
Get the popcorn ready for Tuesday!
