U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, gave the U.N. a severe financial blow on Christmas Eve, following the U.N.’s condemnation of President Trump.
It was announced by Haley that the U.S will provide over $285 million less to the U.N.’s annual budget. This means more nations in the U.N. will have to pony up if they want all of their goals to be seen through. And it all comes in calculated fashion after the U.N. voted 128-9 to condemn the United States and President Trump over his decision recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, per a report by Breitbart. Nikki Haley released the following statement:
Nikki Haley’s Full Statement To The U.N.
Today, the United Nations agreed on a budget for the 2018-2019 fiscal year. Among a host of other successes, the United States negotiated a reduction of over $285 million off the 2016-2017 final budget. In addition to these significant cost savings, we reduced the UN’s bloated management and support functions, bolstered support for key U.S. priorities throughout the world, and instilled more discipline and accountability throughout the UN system.
“The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well-known. We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked. This historic reduction in spending – in addition to many other moves toward a more efficient and accountable UN – is a big step in the right direction. While we are pleased with the results of this year’s budget negotiations, you can be sure we’ll continue to look at ways to increase the UN’s efficiency while protecting our interests,” said Ambassador Haley.
According to Breitbart, Haley warned of reduced funding contributed by America right after the UN voted to condemn the United States last Thursday.

“The United States will remember this day in which it was singled out for attack in the General Assembly for the very act of exercising our right as a sovereign nation.”
“We will remember it when we are called upon to once again make the world’s largest contribution to the United Nations and we will remember it when so many countries come calling on us, as they so often do, to pay even more and to use our influence for their benefit.” VIDEO OF HER SPEECH BELOW
