In an interview with Breitbart News on Thursday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said that Donald Trump should withdraw the United States from the United Nations when he takes office in January.
Palin outlined two ways to accomplish this during the radio interview:
“One is, I called for our next president, Donald Trump, to call for the unshackling of the political bands tying us to the U.N.”
“By exiting the U.N., where injustice is actually rewarded, we then will be able to uphold America’s reputation as the leader, and as the kind and compassionate and generous nation that we are – as the nation sharing values that, when emulated by any other nation, can bring justice and equal rights to any other nation.”
She further explained that the U.S should also target the U.N. as part of the populist movement that helped Trump win the past election, citing that “our government, our bureaucrats and our elected leaders work for us.”
She added, “We are the ones that need to call for this, that the U.N. shackles be next on the chopping block.”
The U.N. has sparked outrage among many conservatives this past week since the Security Council voted to condemn Israeli settlement building as illegal, with the U.S abstaining from the vote instead of using its power to veto the measure.
On the topic of Israel, Palin said:
“Speaking of Israel, it’s almost laughable, if it weren’t so dangerous, that the left now is so obsessed with national borders, obsessed with Israel’s borders.”
“Their defense of what they have just done, in stabbing Israel, is based on their supposed desire to see borders enforced. Since when? They never have seemed to understand the concern that we have, nor the purpose of a nation’s borders. They don’t care about America’s porous borders continuing as is.”
