Cruz and Graham: Defund the UN due to anti-Israel vote
There are now call from Congress to defund the United Nations over its anti-Israeli vote this week. This resolution could have easily been vetoed by the US Ambassador to the UN but the Obama administration chose to abstain from the vote. The real misdeed here is why Obama allowed this to happen.
As Written By Allahpundit for Hot Air:
Who’ll be jammed up more by this, congressional Democrats or Trump?
“It’s that important to me,” [Graham] told CNN. “This is a road we haven’t gone down before. If you can’t show the American people that international organizations can be more responsible, there is going to be a break. And I am going to lead that break.”
“I will do everything in my power, working with the new administration and Congress, to leave no doubt about where America stands when it comes to the peace process and where we stand with the only true democracy in the Middle East, Israel,” Graham added. He later told CNN’s Dana Bash that US funding accounts for 22% of the UN’s budget…
“Trump is a good negotiator. Let’s see if this give him some leverage,” he said, adding if the world body overturned the measure, the UN “has got a chance to reset and let the new administration restart the peace process.”
Spoke w/ Israeli PM @netanyahu tonight to wish him Happy Chanukah & assure him of strong support in Congress. No US $ for UN until reversed.
