Ambassador Nikki Haley renewed her threat to cut foreign aid for countries that oppose the United States at the United Nations, after a State Department review showed agreement with the U.S. plummeting over the last year.
“The American people pay 22 percent of the UN budget — more than the next three highest donor countries combined,” Haley said Thursday evening. “In spite of this generosity, the rest of the UN voted with us only 31 percent of the time, a lower rate than in 2016. That’s because we care more about being right than popular and are once again standing up for our interests and values. Either way, this is not an acceptable return on our investment. ”
The article goes on to state the following:
That was a double-swipe at the U.N. and former President Barack Obama’s administration, as the 31 percent average is “a 10 percentage point drop from 2016” under the State Department’s calculations. Haley’s response renewed a threat previously leveled in December, when the U.N. General Assembly voted to condemn President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the U.S. embassy to the ancient city.
